I've been taking it 3 days and don't sleep. I literally don't sleep because I'm not sleepy
I'm the same way. In 2003 I got a headache and with it came insomnia. I just don't get tired.
I think I felt the effect of trazodone 50mg about a week. I also was taking Ambien 5mg.
Now I'm taking trazodone 100 and Ambien 10mg. I still don't get tired but it knocks me out and I sleep longer.
Watch out for Seroquel and Remeron. I was too hungry to sleep and gained weight fast!
Drowsiness is just a side effect of trazodone so it's very possible that it will not effect you in this way. It is not an approved medication for insomnia so if it isn't working I would ask your doctor for something else.
I only took a quarter of the pill (I forget the dose, but I know it was the lowest dose), and I had the worst nightmare, more like a hallucination. I just stayed awake after that and never took it again.
Trazodone is an anti- depressant that some Dr's prescribe for insomnia. If it doesn't help then it's not for you ask for something different.
im on 50 mg trazodone been on it for three weeks now it take few,weeks to work but everybody reacts different hope this is helpful
