I have been on both of these drugs for many years for insomina but have terrible short term memory problems now. Meaning while awake, I can't carry on conversations like I used to (forget words), read paragraphs but can't tell you much about what I have read, watch a movie but can't tell you what the movie was about two days later etc. Depending on many notes and computer to remember basic things at work. People look at me like I am stupid and the memory problems are effecting my job performance.
We really do not have any long term data focused on memory loss after Ambien usage. We also do not have any data about the combination of Trazodone and Ambien and its effect on memory after long term use.
I suggest you work with a specialist on assessing your current mental ability and try to recover or keep whatever is still left. It would also be advisable that you and your Dr. eliminate the possibility that there might be an entirely different medication unrelated reason for your condition.
