Hello JACKSPRATSR. Yes, both are going to sedate you and certainly help you to fall asleep. But given the combination, once you take the two, its not advised to drive, do anything that requires any of your cognitive abilitiy. Trazodone is an antidepressant which is sedative by its substance. For some years now, its more often than not prescribed to help with sleep, and done so that unlike the benzodiazepine family of sleeping drugs, is generally accepted as not as being as addictive. I did say the word "as". Some people have a heck of a time to stop taking Trazadone when its time to do so. Best wishes to you,pledge
I have, in the past, taken both at the same time for sleep. I've had problems with sleep for a long time and need strong stuff. It had worked for me in the past. I can no longer take trazadone, but I still take the hydroxyzine to help with sleep.
If you so concerned you might want to go back and ask your doctor why he prescribed at the same time.
