Hi Chuck1957,

Thank you so much for sending that. How nice of you to do all that research! I do feel so much better now about the weight gain, or probably lack of, with Trazodone. I am on other medication, so I will have to research further. Thanks again and have a nice night.

Thank u for your information u have given . the doctor that put me on trazadone never told me about any of the side effects. I am now trying to wean myself off of it 25 mg at a time I was on 300 mg I'm now down to 75 mg. So far no withdraw. Thanks again.

I am currently taking trasadone. If I say up for more than 15 min after taking the medication I am so hungry. But the next day I have absolutely no appetite. I have lost 14 lbs in 3 mos. I am currently trying to wean myself off the drug.

486ocean, hi. I also wondered if Trazodone was making me more hungry! That's a very good question you posted. I have been on Trazodone 50 mg for several years now, but it's only in the past year that I have gradually gained 10 pounds and I don't know why! I don't have a big appetite. Have you gained weight? Does the Trazodone help you with insomnia. Sometimes Trazodone helps me, and sometimes it doesn't help much at all with sleep. I hope you are doing well with the Trazodone and sleeping better.

I’ve been prescribed Trazodone 50mg for insomnia and depression. The first night I slept and dreamed like never before in many months. I have noticed my appetite has decreased and my mood is much better. I’m very pleased with the results!

I had that side effect & would eat after taking it. I was on a large dose as well. Once, I stopped taking it. I lost weight.

I've been taking trazodone for about 6 months for insomnia since we made the decision to wean me off of xanax (I was building up too much tolerance). I've noticed that I get INSANELY hungry 15-30 minutes after taking it. I could be super comfy in bed ready to go to sleep but the hunger becomes too much to ignore and I have to get up and eat or I won't be able to sleep. Once I do eat I'm usually out within 20 minutes. free discount card
