: hi, i was thinking of switching to desyrel from pamelor because if i up my dose of pamelor it helps more, but i am too tired after two days, and i have weight gain from several sources. i have heard that desyrel works better and that you need less sleep. i hate it that my day is so much shorter than others. any comments? thanky thanky
I'm currently taking 300 mg of Desyrel(gen:trazodone) along with 4 mg of melatonin RIGHT before bed. It seems to work well. Be sure to take it close to bedtime. If I wait over ten minutes before going to bed, I then want to consume everything in the refridgerator (not good). Sometimes I also take some Valerian Root.
Good luck and my prayers are with you.
