Regarding Trazodone. I have been prescribed this med. for sleep. I have found no info. anywhere that it is indicated for pain off label or otherwise. I have chronic pain (joint pain from untreated disseminated Lyme disease.) Absolutely no pain control benefits what-so-ever.
Trazodone took away MOST of my fibromyalgia pain and has been a great sleeping pill for me, but as you can see, everyone responds differently to the medication. I do still have some pain and a lot of other medical problems associated with fibromyalgia. I don't know how Trazodone would work on any other kind of pain. It certainly hasn't helped with my migraines or neuropathic teeth pain.
I have terrible pain in my head from sinus infection will Trazodone help? after reading its an antidepressant I am a little nervous. I am not depressed just pissed off of the pain in my head. And I have been on 2 different kinds of antibiotics and once finished the pain came back.
