Does Sleeping Medicine Like Trazidone Kill Brain Cells
What can I use for sleep after stopping trazodone? Previously on geodon, (ziprasidone) risperdal, klonopin, ativan, melatonin. At this point believe brain wont cbt
Some alternatives: I don't understand the meaning of your last sentence; does it mean you have tried insomnia-directed cbt (as well as attention to sleep hygiene) but it hasn't worked? Sleep aids you didn't mentioned include rozerem, (ramelteon) doxepin, and various otc herbal mixtures. Also, withdrawal from some of the meds you mentioned could interfere with sleep. And, i'm assuming you aren't using alcohol in the evenings. ...Read more

I heard that sleep deprivation can kill brain cells. How long does it actually takes till your brain cells start dying? (In 18yrs old person)
Research still out: Research has been done on mice and it's likely that it's also true for us - for them 3 days was enough for some cell death. That might be different in people but whatever, it's not a good thing. Brain cells die when we sneeze or do other such things but we have so very many! So, don't worry (that's not healthy) but do sleep regularly and enough! ...Read more
No: Sleep deprivation doesn't kill brain cells but it does cause the brain to function less effectively and to malfunction. You should talk to your doctor about your sleep patterns and how to improve that. At 20 years old you should get from 6-8 hours a night minimum. Factors to consider - work/school schedule, stress, video games / tv, alcohol/drug use. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: The major issue with trying to stop using trazodone for sleep is an intensification of sleeping difficulties as opposed any common withdrawal syndrome. Depending on the current dose it may be reasonable to decrease the dose by 25 to 50 mgs each week allowing your body to adjust in between each dose change. You should always speak with the prescribing physician before stopping any medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
