... baby and I’m unable to fall asleep now. I was thinking of 1. Taking the 125 mg of nortriptyline and bumping the traz to 125 mg or 2. Taking 125 mg of nortriptyline 50 mg of traz and a unisom. I’m not seeing my shrink till Monday and really need to get through these next few days. She told me over the phone I can play w trazodone levels. I’m nervous to up it and then it not working as silly as that sounds.
I have had sleep problems for years and also have been on several different combinations of meds. I'm also a licensed mental health practitioner, but in no way am seeking to offer medical advice. From my personal experience, maybe you could first bump the trazodone to 100, then bump again if you need to... for me, the unisom interfered with my attempts to regulate the prescription meds, so I dropped it all together! Just some ideas-I know how debilitating it can be to go without sleep (especially with a baby)! Best of luck to you!

At 200mg trazodone 150mg Amitryptiline And 15 mg of lunesta all for sleeping. Basically to all of them and maxed dosage. I would not recommend going over 200mg if it was going to work it should have below that.
Melatonin is good for sleep and the herb Valerian. Valerian will only work for a set amount of time before your body learns to metabolize it / grows tolerant to it.
