Yes, if you take a large enough dose. How much do you take?

Hi Roxy,

Your amount of Trazodone is higher then me. I take 25-50mgs. You must find it really hard to wake up and stay awake. Did your doctor start you at a lower dose and had to elevate it? Tell your doctor what is happening, he would probably tell you to go down a little to see if you could sleep o.k.

Thank you, will talk to my doctor. I was taking large quantities of zoplicone and restoril but my tolerance was building up. My doctor told me to mix in trazedone so maybe I should try a lower dose and take my zoplicone at a lower dose and take them both ?

I would still call your doctor or even maybe the pharmacist because they know their meds for sure!

I have been taking this med for two weeks now. It may not leave me tired the following day-I have a severe case of insomnia-but it has DEFINATELY affected my memory, concentration, and even my ability to spell properly! I am always forgeting things daily, and constantly misspell words; since I am a writer and have always had an excellent grasp of grammer and spelling, its a nightmare! It took me almost ten minutes to type this response!! I'm 57 yrs young; if there's anyone out there experiensing these side effects, PLEASE SEND ME A RESPONSE! And forgive any spelling errors I may have made!

Give the pharmacist a call to find out if it is trazodone. For me I don't have any side effects.
