Question Anyone have experiences with Trazodone(Desyrel)?

My doctor just prescribed me this to help me to get to sleep at night. Just wondering if anyone else had ever used this drug and how they liked/disliked it. My doctor is usually pretty good with meds, but I've never heard of this one before, so a little insight would be nice! Thanks!

I know for some people it works great, but for me, it zonked me out so bad that I felt I didn't "come back to earth" until 7 pm the next evening. I felt like I was in a terrible fog and my limbs felt so heavy and sluggish it was like wading through 4 ft of water. I had only taken 25 mg too! I tried the drug 2 more times in hopes the grogginess would diminish, but it didn't; it also made me nauseous.

(s)aint: Hello. I was able to come off of the Klonopin at night - I went to a acupunture and I was able to get to sleep without any drugs. Have you tried this? If you don;t mind the procedure (which doesn't hurt) i highly recomend it. Are you still taking klonopin?

Celexa is going great! thank you for your support.
