I have been on Trazodone for about 8 days, I've been taking .25mgs for sleep anxiety. It worked great for me relieving the anxiety so I could sleep and I had zero side effects from it, in fact it never made me sleepy.Only thing it did was remove the anxiety( root of my sleep problem) I feel that I don't need it anymore and would like to stop it. Can I just stop or should I taper? I am afraid of withdrawals that I have been reading about online. Thank you for you help.

my2kin04 with such a low dose you should not have any problems but you really should check with the doctor Many times we think were doing great until we stop the medication. And a lot of the problems come back. Check with the doctor about how to go off of it safely after 8 years. It really should not be a big problem with this dose.
