Jennita,

We have cooresponded quite a bit. You strike me as being pretty anti-prescription med, but open minded. I have the same sentiments but am also shy of herbal remedies as they are unregulated and problems associated with some of these are reported also. Anyway, I am sitting on a bottle of Trazadone, short half life sedative non-SSRI AD, that on further research, is kin to the Serzone you were on. I have read a variety of sources and the reviews are mixed. Many report it is a great sleep aid for them, even long term, with no serious side effects. What do you think are the risks of giving a bedtime dose a few tries? I am not finding any tales of horror like with benzos and SSRIs. Though there is a male specific side effect that has occured in a small number of cases that does sound troubling...
