What to do if I had 50 mg of trazodone two days ago and am still feeling the effects. How long does it take to wear off?

That is my short ans: 50 mgm trazadone, 48 hours later you still have the effects.
You probably went to see an md with some complaints, which included sleep disturbance. He gave you trazadone and you sort of sleeping since then.
Time for total truth.
What else are you taking. .. ...Read more

What are the side effects of taking Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone together at once? 150 mg for Zoloft (sertraline) and 50 mg for trazodone.

Not many: Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone are often prescribed together. Some people find that zoloft (sertraline) can interfere with sleep and trazodone often provides the necessary sleep relief. Make sure to take trazodone at bedtime, and I would recommend taking zoloft (sertraline) in the morning. Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone each have side effects, but their combination does not tend to cause other effects separate from those side effects. ...Read more

What are the side effects of trazodone when prescribed for sleeplessness and bipolar disorder?

What are the side effects of trazodone when prescribed for sleeplessness and bipolar disorder?

Depends. . .: Serious side effects (se’s) of trazodone are priapism, allergic reactions, problems breathing, thinking changes & stiff muscles. Sedation results from α1 & 5-ht2 antagonism. Because trazodone is rarely used alone to treat bipolar (BP) (it can induce mania), I'm assuming you are taking other BP meds w/ it. If so, it is hard to discuss other possible se’s w/o knowing the other meds. ...Read more
