Trazodone is used for depression, anxiety, sleeplessness and for chronic pain. Did not work for my pain, did help me sleep. Pill Wizard.com is my source of info for your question. Hope my answer helps.
yes, trazadone is used by physicians as a pain reliever & some individuals respond favorably.
please make sure & follow your doctors' recommendations & only make doctor recommended medicine dosage changes.

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.
I took it and it made me feel horrible. It did nothing for my pain but it did help me to fall asleep. The drowsy feeling before I fell a sleep was so unpleasant that I had to discontinue the drug.
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.
