I was wondering if it OK to only take the trazodone a few nights a week when I cannot sleep instead of everyday. I know it is an antidepressant
Well if you're taking it for depression which I'd hope not since its not very good at being an antidepressant then take it every night but if its for insomnia sure you can take it occasionally as it doesn't need to build up for the sedating properties to work but it most likely will leave you with severe lethargy when you wake up so taking every night might make your body used to it so its up to you but yes to answer the question
