Re: Trazodone Hydrochloride

I took it once as a sleep aid in the hospital because the hospital pharmacy didn't carry melatonin for my usual melatonin/amitryptiline sleep combo. It put me into a sort of dazed state - my head felt like it was full of rocks. I started drifting off and having weird thoughts, but it took me over a hour to fall asleep. Definitely didn't have the fast-acting effect that melatonin has. I was pretty drowsy in the morning, too, wheras with melatonin/amitryptiline, I don't have that. I did sleep well, I'll give it that. I would take it a couple hours before bedtime - maybe that would reduce the hangover effect.
