Dear Evilernie - 5 days on most meds isn't long enough to tell if it is working or not. These things take time. However, if you are having a BAD time with the 5 day med, talk to your doc about stopping. I doubt there is enough in your system to experience w/ds. but, we are all different, and handle meds different. VIP - Let your doc know what you are doing if different from what prescribed, they can help you with any problems you are having. Good luck, be safe, and well as can be...
In my opinion u should never stop a med without letting the prescribing doc no even it being only five days he should still be aware..does it not help u? If not then u just tell prescribing doctor it doesn't work and go from there... good luck..
Just go down to 25mg for a few days and go off!
You should be fine.
While I'd no bad experience, I didn't have a good experience either, it just did nothing for me.
Since you are having a bad reaction I'd think that you could stop it with no problems after five days. You certainly won't feel a withdrawal from Trazadone after five doses. If you were on it for several months I'd wager you'd feel something, but not after five days.
Best wishes to you,
p.s. I agree with kaismama, she is a nurse and knows of what she speaks... or types, in this situation.
You probably could, since you're reacting badly to it.
It is unwise to stop Trazodone without professional advice - you should talk with your doctor first.
