Sleep Disorder: I recommend you have a complete physical to find out if you have a physical illness causing insomnia. If you are OK and Trazodone is working then keep using it and consult with a Clinical Psychologist to get help in learning what is provoking sleep problems and how to get better. The Psychologist may recommend a sleep disorders study to get more information to help you.
