Trazodone And Amitriptyline
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?
For what?: As a sleep agent? Trazodone is not MY favorite drug for just about anything.....don't get me wrong....it's not an evil drug....but it's not particularly clean in its side effects. Notorious for causing terrible headaches, makes some people blithering idiots the next morning, and reacts with a lot of stuff. If amitriptyline is giving you too many side effects how about nortriptyline? ...Read more
Tried celexa, amitriptyline, and trazodone for anxiety, all have caused heart racing and palps, also still anxious. Any suggestions? Am I imagining?
Can my medicines atenolol 50 mg, amitriptyline 50mg, trazodone 25mg, and depakote 1000 mg cause arm and leg weakness?
They can - it depens: It depends on why you are taking these meds, what doses, and how quickly they each were added to your regimen. Further - weakness means different things to different people, a further clarificationof weakness is needed before guessing/diagnosing whether your medicines are contributing to it. ...Read more
I take trazodone for sleep make me sleep in 10 min but i dont sleep more then 5h do u think elavil make me sleep fast as trazodone and sleep longer?
Trazodone doesn't: usually act this way. It typically takes longer to act, and puts people out longer, with a longer hang over the next morning than Elavil or other sleep aids. Elavil is another antidepressant in this class, but has a bad reputation for side effects, mostly weight gain (not so for Trazodone). Check with your MD for dosages and also for alternative sleepers... ...Read more
Besides remeron, what other med is good for sedation and anxiety? Trazodone gives me terrible nightmares & elavil is evil to get used to.
Buspar is another: Buspar is a non-addictive anti-anxiety medication.

Lamotrigine 200mg/elavil 50mg/paxil 10mg
I wake early with morning sweats - altering sleep time does not work. Thinking of adding trazodone at night?
For sleep aid, patient with severe insomnia you dr. had to choose between prescribing Amitriptyline or Trazadone or Flexeril, which one would you choose? and how would you monitor it?
Adjunct,side effects: It all depends on the situation. The bigger question to me is "why does the patient have insomnia?" and then deal with that piece. You mentioned that you're on methotrexate, but not why. Similarly, you've had a cardiac catheterization, but don't state the reason. The choice of drug when treating insomnia, if a drug therapy is required at all, depends strongly on the other conditions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've just seen on the Internet that trazadone and amitriptyline taken together is dangerous, opinions please?
I am prescribed .50mg Xanax 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?
OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
