Are you using Trazadone as a sleep aide or are you taking it as maintenance like I presume you are with the Zoloft? Nothing I have ever read or have I ever been told that these can not be taken together and I do A LOT of research. As with most of these types of medications that we take, we must use precaution until we know what the effects are on ourselves. Both of these drugs can cause drowsiness... mostly the Zoloft, so when combining medications one may exacerbate the side effects of the other. Case in point - myself - Zoloft made me almost non-functional... really not able to get off the floor. It did stop my panic attacks though!! I don't remember the strength. I hope this was helpful in some way.

I have taken the same combonation of meds in the past. No problem mixing them but I took the Zoloft in the AM and the tarazdone in the PM as it made me more drowsy. Hope this helps. If you dont seen an improvement in 3-4 weeks, you should talk to your DR. and make sure the doses are what you need. Side efects on both of these eased off real early for me also.

Yes sarajean. Perfectly safe. A very common side effect of zoloft is insommnia, all be it temporary. Most people to combat this take thier zoloft in the morning. And the trazodone is taken usually at bedtime because of its sedation qualities and so that in turn helps them get a nights sleep.
