Taking 50mg trazodone/night. How many hours should I space one glass of wine or rita, before taking pill? Or should I not take my pill that night?

Hours: Generally you don't want to drink within 2-4 hours of sleep because this contributes to nighttime waking. If you wake trazadone specifically for sleep, this should be safe. Less is always better so if you can go without the combination of alcohol and medications, that may be helpful. ...Read more

Drank 10 oz of wine with 300mg of trazodone for sleep and my cpap machine just fried. Should i worry?

CPAP: Never really a good idea to mix alcohol and antidepressants. That said, it seems unlikely that would have caused your CPAP machine to do so much extra work overnight that it would implode. However, without knowing more about you - it's impossible to say for sure. If you have any concerns, give your doctor a call. Hope that helps! ...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
