Is trazodone effective for sleeping?

Is trazodone effective for sleeping?

Yes: I see my colleagues endorse trazodone only cautiously, but I've had good success with it in my practice. It's non-addictive (unlike many sleep aids), the dose is easily adjustable, and it's long-acting, so it gives a full night's sleep. It's not quick-acting, so best to take it a little ahead of bedtime. Side effects are rare in my experience.
