Hi' how long does it take trazodone to give an anxiolytic effect.

Trazodone effect: Although trazodone is an ssri, so it should treat depression and anxiety, for most patients it is far too sedating to be used for anything except insomnia. If it does not put you to sleep, it might help anxiety within 1-2 hours after taking it. If it does not help anxiety, try a higher dose, although this likely will put you into deep sleep. Talk with your doctor to find the best anxiety med for you. ...Read more

I take trazodone, buspirone and bromazepam together. Lately I've lost interest in things things that I used to enjoy. Why is this happening?

I was recently prescribed 100 mg of trazodone to help with my insomnia. Do I have to take it every night or can I take it only when I really need it?

I was recently prescribed 100 mg of trazodone to help with my insomnia. Do I have to take it every night or can I take it only when I really need it?

As needed: Trazadone is actually an antidepressant, but only in very high doses. Sedation is a side effect even in low doses and not necessary to take regularly when used for insomnia. In fact regular use may lead to tolerance of sedative effect. Usually best to take it an hour or 2 before you plan to go to sleep. Some people do get a hangover feeling the next morning. ...Read more

Is it ok to take trazodone 50 mg at bedtime and 5-htp 100 mg for day time around 8 am?

Is it ok to take trazodone 50 mg at bedtime and 5-htp 100 mg for day time around 8 am?

Yes: This is a bit tricky because both trazodone and 5-HTP increase serotonin levels and thus, high doses of these together could lead to serotonin syndrome, a dangerous condition. However, 50 mg is a very moderate dose of trazodone and 100 mg of 5-HTP is not a high dose, so this might have an effect similar to increasing trazodone to 75 mg or so which is a safe dose. ...Read more
