Had insomnia all my life, now in my 40s. Took 50mg and seemed to be the miracle sleep pill I was looking for but stopped working after 2 weeks. Doc had previously told me to up the dose to 100mg after 2 weeks anyway, which I did, but still not working. Has this happened to anyone else? After feeling good for 2 weeks I am now getting anxious about insomnia and feeling wrecked all day again.
Hello Rob B. I suggest you ask your doctor to increase the dose. There is room for an increase.The average dose taken is 200 to 400mg per 24 hour period. Regards pledge
Maybe this side effect of Trazodone stopped working for you. It's a pretty poor pill for insomnia at least for me same thing with Amitriptyline.
It didn't work for me, either. I feel your pain. Insomnia sucks and those that don't have it have no idea...
