I've taken it on and off over the years. It doesn't always help me sleep neither. One thing that does is Promethazine. It's an antihistamine similar to Benedryl but stronger. It makes me sleep but usually too long as in 12 hours. I also find tolerance develops quickly so I can't use it more than 3 nights in a row.
Tephis; Yes as what everyone else is saying Years ago when I started it for sleep it worked great and I still keep some around. But can't even remember the last time I have taken it seems as I needed more and more to sleep it just kept me awake. They seem to still prescribe it a lot just for the sleeping effect and it helps during the day with depression or light anxiety But forget it as a sleeping pill once we get used to it. Chuck1957

Does trazodone work quickly or is it one of those drugs you have to take for awhile before it works?
