Either for sleeping or depression?
17 May 2012
Hello Thor. Just to add to what Laurie already mentioned. This is my own point of view. As an antidepressant its not very effective, and is not perscribed for it to any degree anymore. More often than not when it is perscribed is is done so off label as a sleeping aid. Regards, pledge

I was taking 100-200 mg. of Trazadone at bedtime for sleep and it worked for a number of years. It can also act as an anti-depressant. I started out at 100 mg. After awhile, that didn't work. So, it was raised to 150 mg. Then, that didn't work either. I was put on the maximum dose of 200 mg. It worked, however I experienced a "Trazadone hang-over" the next day. What I'm saying is that the higher the dose, the greater the likelihood you will experience side effects. So, I was taken off the Trazadone and I had to have something else for insomnia.
