I am prescribed both. I take trazodone most nights and Ambien when needed. Either way I don't sleep. Some nights I want to try both due to the fact I have many 100% sleepless nights. 200 mg of trazodone and 10mg Ambien. I see my psych dr tomorrow but I desperately need to sleep tonight. I haven't slept in i don't know how long cuz I'm stuck in this fog. Thanks in advance!
Trazodone is an antidepressant mainly used off label for its side effect of drowsiness but it has insomnia or trouble sleeping listed as a side effect. I would personally try the ambien without the trazodone. Any drug acting on serotonin can be activating and cause increased anxiety and agitation.
