A 50-year-old male asked:
dr just added 25 mg of trazadone for sleep...does this make sense rather than add ambien (zolpidem) or go up on klonopin?

Yes: Trazodone is a an antidepressant which is often added at bedtime for it's sedating effect to help insomnia. It is non-addicting, therefore preferred for longer term use. The 25 mg dose is low and reasonable. Your mood may also improve. Hope this helps.
