I've had problems with anxiety and insomnia for years. In the past, I've taken Xanax on the nights when I couldn't fall asleep at all. It's just not cutting it anymore. I need something daily now for the all day anxiety and sleepless nights. I was just given Trazodone 50 mg. I just took my first dose last night. I only took 25mg. I didn't notice much, just had nasal congestion, and still woke up every couple hours all night long. The only difference I noticed was that I was able to roll over and go back to sleep, where normally I may lay away feeling anxious for an hour or two. I thought it was difficult to get up in the morning and I had a slight headache. I feel like I'll need to take the 50 mg if I want to sleep better tonight. We'll see what happens. I'm taking this med for anxiety and insomnia. Anyone else take this? What's your experience with it?

Re: Trazodone

Hi SAK9210, Itake 50mg also for about a year now and it has done wonders for me. One pcp doc got me on it then moved away so my new doc thought I better cut back to 25mg because I was on so many drugs he thought it was all to much. I didnt like it and told him so, was affraid I wouldnt get any sleep. So I gave in to say I tried for about a month. And it did just what I thought it would so I went back to 50mg. So just praying every thing will be ok. Hope it will work for you to. It just makes me sleepy but thats what its suppose to do. Good Luck with it. home sweet home
