On the the trazodone it says "avoid alcohol and grape fruit juice, why?

Interactions: Trazodone is a sleep medicine and alcohol puts you to a sleep harder so it makes sense to avoid them in combination. Grapefruit has a famous interaction with many medicines because they have compounds called furanocoumarins that inhibit proteins including cyp3a4 and p-glycoprotein. This results in unpredictable effects on many other medications, and trazodone is broken down by cyp3a4. ...Read more

The: The most important thing in this complicated situation is that the patient closely establish with a gynecologist so that she can have a complete evaluation including an ultrasound. Although all medications carry risks during pregnancy, in the majority of cases the baby is fine. Of course with Methadone there are risks of addiction at birth so the baby will need to be monitored closely, and Coumadin (warfarin) is a blood thinner that can't be taken during pregnancy but there alternatives such as variants of heparin. ...Read more

Is trazodone good for a 9 year old?

Is trazodone good for a 9 year old?
