Hello Asoc24. You might ask your doctor for an increase to the dose. The daily dose when given for depression is between 200 to 400mg. For sleep the dose averages from 50 to 100mg/150mg. Best of wishes, pledge

Yes, I agree with the others. I also know there are a few other things you can do to help with sleep. Have your room totally dark, even light on alarm clock is too much. No television or computer an hour before bed. Go to bed at the same time every night. All this is to teach your body when to release melatonin, which makes you sleep. A glass of milk before bed can help. During the day get a little sunshine, and as much exercise as you can tolerate. No caffeine for 4 hrs before bedtime either.

Tell your Doctor so an adjustment or change can be made.

Ask your dr. for an increase. I take 300mg trazodone and most always works. Best to you... pamee

I take 100mg and another 100mg if needed (I don't want to be drugged out the next day). I would ask for them to increase it, but slowly do it because if I am not careful, I will just want to sleep the next day away :( It sucks. free discount card
