I started off taking 100 mg of trazodone for a sleep aid a week ago but was anxious, dizzy, extremely tired the next day and vomiting. After one day I was told to cut it in half and be sure i take it at night and with a meal. I don't eat meals at 9 p.m. so i tried taking it after dinner. But I was sleepy and dizzy about an hour later which caused me to fall asleep 2 hours earlier. Then I was up at 2am not able to sleep. I tried a small snack with it and it worked for 2 days. Now I'm back to morning sickness, dry heaves when I wake. I do sleep better with this so would like to know if this will ever go away. It's miserable in the morning!
I'm on a few other medicines and have been for about 10 years for bipolar and depression. 375mg of Lamictal and 300 mg of Wellbutrin. My new pdoc weaning me off Ativan as well. So I don't think it's any of these as I've been on them so long.
Any suggestions for this sickness? I've read just about everything I can and still can't find a solution. I'm tired of trying new sleep medicines so I'd like to stay on this since its helping that a little.
