Hi-I'm on 200 mg of Zoloft and weaned of klonopin two weeks ago. I was on the klon mainly for sleep. I just started trazadone for sleep 2 nights at 25 and 1 night at 50. A bunch of questions-how long before bed do you take traz? Do you find it immediately puts you to sleep? Does anyone take it for sleep and anxiety? My doc is considering either lowering my Zoloft and upping the trazadone a bit or just using trazadone for sleep and anxiety. Anyone just using trazadone? Thanks!
mmmmmm19; Yes some do just take Trazodone only to help keep them under control and also for sleep. But for most it really has not been that effective were it me I WOULD STILL take the Zoloft in the morning and don't increase it until the doctor says to. Most do pretty well on this combination Just remember that the Zoloft sometimes makes the symptoms a bit worse for the first few weeks but it smooths out and from then on it feels better the longer your on it. Also, the Zoloft taken at bedtime you try it a few different ways some have to take it right at bedtime or they get too sleepy before they can hit the bed and others you take it 1 to 2 hours prior to bed and you are out as soon as you lay down.It is like we all are different and these meds have to be tapered to us. See what the doctor says after you have been on it for a while. But most really do pretty well on this 2 medication better than they do on just the one. Have a great day and hope this works out for you and always feel free to place another question if you need one of us.
