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?

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

I take trazodone for sleep make me sleep in 10 min but i dont sleep more then 5h do u think elavil (amitriptyline) 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 (amitriptyline) or other sleep aids.

They can - it depens (penicillamine): It depends on why you are taking these meds, what doses, and how quickly they each were added to your regimen.

I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?

 I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 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 (alprazolam) 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 more
