mg of trazodone. I've taken it for several nights now and can't get to sleep. I'm wondering if I take 50mg of seroquel with the trazodone, will it get me to sleep and the lower dose of seroquel will cut the tendency for weight gain?
I also take seroquel and other medications.
My advice to you is that you do not self medicate. Contact your Dr. and discuss the possibility of what you are thinking on doing with him/her first.
Hi, taking these medications together can be dangerous, they can provoke an irregular heart beat, so please talk to your doctor before making any changes. You might find that the Trazodone work better if you give them a few more days. I'm sure you won't miss the weight gain from Seroquel, i wish it wasn't such a problem!
Thanks to all of you for responding. I will definitely follow your recommendations.
Hope your seeing by now. I would do one or other. Eventually it'll work. I stopped trazadone two months ago and sleep better without it finally!
Neither seroquel nor trazodone are sleeping medications. Seroquel is an antipsychotic. trazodone is an antidepressant. I have taken both, prescribed for sleep. Seroquel worked for sleep at high doses (450 mg or more). trazodone hyped me up. However, upon seeing a new pdoc, I found out that antidepressants should not be used long term in people with BP. He explained that I was unable to sleep because of the trazodone. My previous pdoc was prescribing meds solely for the side effects, not because they were needed to control my BP. All of the antidepressants my previous pdoc prescribed kept me from sleeping, which is the condition they were being prescribed for, including Wellbutrin and Remeron. If you get off of the trazodone, you may be able to sleep finally.
