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

Insomnia: A poor sleep technic perhaps. Insomnia can occur when the environment where you sleep does not facilitate this important process. Make sure you have no distractions in the room like a tv, laptop. Ipad, smart phones, books, etc.. If still having problems may consider evaluation for restless leg syndrome or depression. Exercise during the day, not at night. Tell your physician about side effects. ...Read more

My fiance suffers from terrible migraines. Could trazodone be the cause of them?

My fiance suffers from terrible migraines. Could trazodone be the cause of them?

Unlikely: Migraine is a dramatic event that may occur with stress or reaction to certain triggers. Certain foods and medicines may do this, but it is often not a clear cause. Trazadone is used with benefit in many migraine patients. She needs to explore causes and develop a thorough management plan. She needs to discuss these issues with her doctor. ...Read more

Day 3 of Trazadone, nasty migraine. Dr said it's ok to stop. What is safe to take for migraine? Last trazadone 24 hrs ago

Trazodone: Trazodone is a very good antidepressant and sedating agent which will help insomnia. Usually causes headaches and nightmares for the first week after starting the drug, and also when you stopped it for a while. After the first week, those side effects disappear. Keep taking the medicine for at least several more days to measure the effect on your sleep, and if it works, continue with it. ...Read more

I'm on levetiracetam 500mg twice a day, topamax (topiramate) 100mg once at night and trazodone 100mg at night for chronic migraines. Now I'm having constipation?

I'm on levetiracetam 500mg twice a day, topamax (topiramate) 100mg once at night and trazodone 100mg at night for chronic migraines. Now I'm having constipation?

Wow!: First, are your migraines controlled with all of these medicines? If not, and you are having adverse events, would first modify the above drugs. Topamax (topiramate) works best taken twice daily, and the dose needed may be a bit higher. I do not find migraine helped by Levetiracetam or trazadone usually, and there are many other choices which work far better. Re constipation, increase your dietary fibre. ...Read more

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

Yes and no: You should not use them both at the same time unless cleared by your doc.
