... and it is making me feel depressed during the day when it wears off.
Hi, Elaine! Trazadone is actually approved for use as an antidepressant with a starting dose of 50mg. The 25mg dose you take is sometimes prescribed as a sleep aid precisely because one of it's side effects is sedation. I wonder if that's what you're feeling the next day ~ a mild hangover, so to speak. How long have you been taking it? The day side effects generally resolve within just a few days to a week or two.
Meanwhile, how are you sleeping?
Best regards, Wildcat
