Doctor started me on 50mg and slowly moved me up to 150mg of trazodone over 6 weeks. For the most part it seems to work great,sleeping 6 to 8 hrs throughout the night. However some nights I wake up every couple of hrs, Has anyone else experienced this, and does it mean I need to up the dose again?
I did better for sleep with a lower dose 50 mg. When I was moved up to 75 mg it was a hit or miss. Some night 2-3 hours sleep then 6-7 hours. Went back to 50 mg but started having bad headaches and had to stop taking it. I am now on Amitriptyline 12.5 mg and sleeping 6-7 hours consistently.
I would talk to your doc to see what he thinks.
Hope you get some good Zzzzzs soon. :)
