I have been using trazodone for 7 nights now, and haven't been sleeping for like 2 hours after I take it. It is 50mg as a sleep aid. I read that it is an SRI and am worried . I have noticed a little agitation when I take the trazodone.
I have not used an antidepressant for a very long time, and even though the trazodone was precribed for sleeping, I am still worried it could cause hypomania. My pdoc is on vacation til April, so I don't know if I should quit taking it , but after 7 nights I am more agitated than usual and still not sleeping after I take it. I still take lithobid and ativan, and a regular doctor recently gave me donnatol for colon spasms. It is just that antidepressents worry me, because being agitated could possibly lead to mania.
