I'm not sure about this and am quite anti-anti-depressant usage due to the sexual side affects ... sorry I want a sex life! lol! sorry tmi ... lol ... any how I was given 25 mg. of hydroxyzine which did nothing for me ... I"m coming off of Ultram and can't sleep -- of course ... and my blood pressure is off the chart today and my doc decided/declared that it's NOT withdrawal? Really? 150/100 is normal? I don't think so ... plus the not sleeping ... I have been through withdrawal before so I know how it feels, unfortunately ... has anyone else been given this for sleeping purposes only ... and do you have to take it every night/and do you have sexual side effects if you are only taking for sleeping purposes? He prescribed 50 mg. once at bedtime ... just not sure :( I also am taking 2.0 mg of Klonopin per my sleep doc for periodic limb movement disorder ... was told these two won't conflict?
I can't believe that your doctor actually told you that your symptoms are not withdrawal!!! lol Now I've heard everything!! I've been through withdrawal too and you are right your symptoms more than likely are from drug withdrawal, although, I am not a doctor, but I do know from expirence... and I have taken Trazodone for sleep/depression, but it was a long time ago and from what I can remember it didn't cause a problem with my sex life, but it did make me quite sleepy, of course, so I would wait till after sex to take it, so you may want to do that.
Hope this helps... :)
Best of luck to you!!
I've taken trazodone for sleep for over 6 years now. It works great and doesn't give me any side effects. I do wake up a little groggy sometimes and if I miss a dose I can't sleep, it feels like I'm withdrawing the next day. I'm at 100mg every night but want to wean off because I just started Cymbalta and Atarax. I took a quarter of a pill last night and felt like I was up all night. Tired but my mind was racing. Not sure if it's from the new meds or bc I didn't take my full dose of trazodone. Hope this helps! I've never noticed it affecting my sex drive either. It's a good medicine and it's not habit forming.
