In these past 6 weeks, he began experiencing some side effects that he didn't have before. He's battling nausea a good part of the day, along with fatigue and dizziness, and his liver is visibly swollen. A week ago he reduced his dosage by half, which has helped somewhat, but he nevertheless feels that he'll have to stop taking it altogether. He has an appointment with his doctor ten days from now, but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and if so, at what point can one stop taking it after having diminished the dosage for a time... Thank you all very much in advance for sharing your thoughts with me.

Hi, I have been taking trazodone 100mg for 3 years. I was not aware that you got side effects coming off this med. I was told that coming off trazodone was easy. Not an addicting med at all. I was told if I wanted to cut down just to cut 1/4 off the pill for a week and so on. Regarding the nausea my son gets nauseated often and uses ginger candy from the health food store. All you need is a nibble. Good luck and take care!
