Trazodone Overdose Death
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

Talk to doctor asap: Why did you take that much trazadone. If it was because you were trying to hurt yourself (and added alcohol to the mix to boot), then you need help immediately. If you were trying to get high, you still need help, and that help should be obtained ASAP before you accidentally hurt yourself. Drugs require prescriptions because they are NOT safe for people to take without professional advice. ...Read more

Sis overdosed in trazodone, doxylamine, lorazepam, anti-emetics over 24h ago. Sleeps a lot, feels dizzy. Will the effects increase or wear down? Help
Bad combo: These medications are all sedating and have a potential to interact depending on the dosage taken. Lorazepam ingestion can be reversed with a medication called flumazenil (clonazepam). It sounds like you're quite concerned about your sister. .. Going to the ER and making sure that she receives the proper medical and (more importantly) psychiatric care is definitely your best bet. Hope that helps! ...Read more
Overdosed on trazodone 2 days ago. No appetite, a little bit of stomach pain, sinus infection is worse, diarrhea, nauseous but no vomiting? Normal?
I commend you for being concerned about your Health!
Trazadone is a medication for depression. You deserve relief from depression.
Taking overdose indicates hopelessness and despair.
Trileptal and Zofran (ondansetron) can cause nausea and vomiting.

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
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. Also, given your age (sorry to comment on that), I would definitely consult a doc prior to trying any of those, since he needs to know your history and do an exam to make sure those meds are safe for you to take. ...Read more

Many things.: First, make sure you are taking it only at night. If you are taking it for sleep, try a slightly smaller dose, or try taking it 1 hour earlier than you are right now. If it is still making you tired during the day, you will have to ask your doctor about changing this medication. ...Read more
