Sominex=Diphenhydram: Generally it's better in the long-term to practice Cognitive Behavioral skills for insomnia. Meds may or may not work in short term like adding Sominex (which is really Benadryl/Diphenhydramine) to Trazadone but it may result in tolerance and side effects. You are also taking K-pin and Inderal (propranolol). You've had a liver biopsy. It's possibly the meds aren't being processed well. Eliminate alcohol. ...Read more

Get the facts: As a pathologist, i've run into two completed suicides in which the person believed they had cancer but actually did not -- they had a manageable illness.

I stopped taking my trazadone 25mg two nights ago because of the low heart rate I only took it for a month what's a safer alternative like sominex ok?

I stopped taking my trazadone 25mg two nights ago because of the low heart rate I only took it for a month what's a safer alternative like sominex ok?

Safer: behavioral rx: Are you sure trazadone lowered your heart rate? You are also taking a beta-blocker (Inderal) which can lower HR. You are taking Klonopin (clonazepam) (long-acting benzodiazepine) which can help sleep. I would not add OTC drugs without checking with your MD. Consider non-drug treatment for insomnia: CBT psychotherapy which could also help you with your anxiety. Consult a psychologist who treats sleep prob ...Read more
