I am 71 years if age and I have been taking Paxil for 15 years to treat depression. I also have not had a good nights sleep in many many years.
I had a heart attack 30 days ago and my Dr put me on Trazadone to help sleep. What if anything are the problems these two drugs taken together may cause. I have tried to stop Paxil many times with negative results. I am resigned to takeing paxil for my life time but I need to find out if the two drugs are toxic if taken together. I have been sleeping better with Trazadone than I have for many many years. There for I'm thinking to myself, this is too good to be true. There has to be a down side mixing these two drugs. I have been taking paxil in the a.m. and tarazadone at night , of course. Am I asking for trouble? Or is this the sleeping solution I have been looking for so long.
