Is trazodone good for a 9 year old?

Is trazodone good for a 9 year old?

No: Trazodone is not approved by the fda for children. Your child's doctor may prescribe it off-label, but it is not normally used as an antidepressant for children as it has not been studied in kids. Its often used in small doses as a "sleeping pill" in adults because it is so sedating, but we try to use safer things for sleep in children. And don't give your child something prescribed for you. ...Read more

Trazodone, is this medication addictive?

Trazodone, is this medication addictive?

Not traditionally: Trazodone is an antidepressant. Its sedating properties make it useful for sleep problems. It differs from more clearly addictive medicines like xanax (alprazolam) or klonopin. "addiction" implies craving, continued use despite negative life effects, & withdrawal on stopping the substance. Still, stopping trazodone suddenly can lead to "discontinuation" symptoms: fatigue, myalgia, anxiety, dizziness, etc. ...Read more

Is it ok to take trazodone 50 mg at bedtime and 5-htp 100 mg for day time around 8 am?

Is it ok to take trazodone 50 mg at bedtime and 5-htp 100 mg for day time around 8 am?

Yes: This is a bit tricky because both trazodone and 5-HTP increase serotonin levels and thus, high doses of these together could lead to serotonin syndrome, a dangerous condition. However, 50 mg is a very moderate dose of trazodone and 100 mg of 5-HTP is not a high dose, so this might have an effect similar to increasing trazodone to 75 mg or so which is a safe dose. ...Read more
