Depends: Most frequent complaint i hear is really, really sluggish brain and body. But wait a minute; ever read all the possible side effects. Don't! aspirin would never get thru. I got off track; you consult with the psychiatrist who prescribed it. Not a psychiatrist? Why, you deserve it. Well, ok.

Desyrel (trazodone): It is the brand name for trazodone, an antidepressant which is mainly used to help people sleep. Only doses above 400mg has antidepressant effects but that would usually cause so much sleepiness that it is not used at all for depression. Most people sleep well at 100mg or below. A minority needs up to 450mg to sleep well, but they have other severe mental problems also.
