: I've been taking Wellbutrin for a long time now. But after I decided to come off the birth control pill, my hormones went crazy and I've been really depressed. I asked my doctor about Trazodone, and he thought it would be a good one to try. Well I started at 50mg the first week, and I went to 100mg earlier this week. I'm supposed to go up to 150mg. I've heard Trazodone caused short term memory loss, but it's really freaking me out. I feel like an idiot because I can't remember things I did earlier in the day or 5 minutes ago. And I actually think I'm seeing things, so now I feel scared that what I think I'm seeing isn't really what's there. It's so weird. I feel dizzy all day and I've slept right through my alarm. I can't believe it when I finally wake up, that it's been going off for 45 minutes. Anyway, it has somewhat brought me out of my depression, maybe just by totally confusing me. But I really need this to work for me. I'm running out of options. I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, and if it will eventually go away. I want to feel better, but I don't want to turn into a dingbat. Please if anyone can help, I would appreciate it. I hope this whole thing makes sense, I honestly can't tell.

I was on trazodone for approx 6 weeks this summer. I took it only at bedtime to help me sleep, and serzone during the day. It took a couple of nights but boy did it work. Although at the time that I started, I hadn't slept for 2 weeks for more than an hour per night. I was on 200 mg for a week and then 100 for a week and then 50 for a month. Then I went off and I'm just on serzone. In fact the other night, I had laid in bed for over 2 hours and finally got up and took 50 mg and w/in 1/2hour, I was out. It also seemed to help with my slight depression. Good luck let us know what you do. sue
