 5  To help me sleep I can feel a little bit of a hangover in the morning but I think some of that is just the way I am. I always have a tired feeling inside. It works for me. Makes me weary within 15 or 20 minutes of taking it. I've used other sleep medications in the past and those tended to stay with me on into the daylight morning hours which was not desirable. It still happens with this one to some degree but not nearly as much. M 60 4 years
150 MG 1X D
 5  For sleep,tension attitude More libido unusually horny,sexually aroused imagining having sex thoughts of course woman :) I'm straight !!!! Helps with sleep in 30-45 minutes,regardless with or without food...!!! M 10 days
25 MG
 5  insomnia / depression No side effects. Felt good in the morning after sleep. Taking 50mg 30m before bedtime. No trouble falling asleep. Wake up only once instead of every hour on the hour. Easy to fall back asleep if I do wake up. M 34 2 weeks
 5  sleep problems due to bipolar No side effects at all - I take 150 mgs at night to sleep and get a great night's sleep as opposed to the old sleeping about 3 - 4 hours a night. Now, I sleep about 8 hrs. M 31 1 years
 5  Insomnia None It didn't knock me out at night but it did allow me to fall asleep within a normal time frame, whereas before it would take me 3+ hours. I didn't wake up feeling drugged and if I was awoken in the middle of the night, I was alert. I would not recommend stopping this one cold turkey. I did, and I suffered extreme insomnia for a week and crying spells along with anxiety. They stopped eventually, but it was one rough week. M 29 1 years
50MG 1X D
 5  Cancer patient need to be calm Gave me a normel life M 10 days
100 mg
 5  Sleep aid Nothing that I would term a complaint. I have used Traz for 10 years, as a sleep aid. When used for this purpose, I am nothing but blissful with its effect. Up until a couple of years ago, I took 100 mg. at bedtime. I have met many people who complain about its lingering effects during the following day. I have never been anything other than grateful for its effect. I am a naturally high strung person, and this lets me drift into slumber, predictably each night. I was able to reduce my dosage in 2015, as my overall mental state had improved. I have never had its effects diminish. Thanks Traz. M 59 10 years
50 mg. 1X D
 5  Anxiety and sleep No side effects. I take regular , not hcl. 100 mg during day, 400 mg bedtime. Been taking over 10 years. A wonder drug . M 60 10 days
500 mg
 5  depression This drug proves their is light at the end of the dark horrible tunnell.I have my life back hoping to reduce dosage soon.No side effects to date just a great sleep. M 56 2 years
 5  Chronic insomnia I take 50mgs in the higher doses, I experienced restless legs. But not so at 50mgs. It helps me relax in the evening and get to sleep fairly quickly, and I sleep through the night. The only downside is the hangover feeling in the morning, but that usually goes away after an hour or so. This medication was a lifesaver for me. Takes awhile to adjust to it, but for me, it's helped tremendously. M 54 3 years

 4  sleep starting out at 25 mg to 50 mg to 75 mg seems to work pretty well and no negative effects i took this a year ago at 100 mg and fell out of bed so this time did my own research with pharmacist on how to take correctly M 63 12 days

 4  Recovering addict with nightmares None other then having the munchies right before I get sleepy and dry mouth M 22 1 months
 4  Insommnia Very slight headache at times, and gas. Half of an erection the next morning and throughout the next day at times. Penis muscle enlarged. Go to bed no more than 15 minutes after taking 50-100mg or you might not get to sleep. Works well with no food or with food at bedtime. Helps me sleep well for 5 to 6 hours, thinking of including Melatonin to help sleep longer, however 6 hours is usually enough to get me through the day well. Helps calm speedy thoughts of the day almost immediately at bedtime. Fall asleep in 15 minutes. Works much better than [email protected] M 68 13 months
50-100mg 1X D
 4  insomnia At first I had major grogginess throughout the day on the initial 25mg dose. I had to increase up to 50mg after just a few days to get the same effect as the 25mg. I am still kind of new to Trazodone. It's mixed with my cocktail of depression drugs, rls medicine, and an anti-arrhythmic (Wellbutrin XL, Cymbalta, Klonopin, Sotalol). If I don't get to bed within an hour of taking the 50mg pill I pass out on the couch. I'm still trying to train myself to get to bed by 11pm or midnight but I have a lifetime of anxiety around trying to fall asleep and failing. I also have a CPAP machine for sleep apnea that was added just after I started the Trazodone. I wake up several times during the night still and I don't know why. M 39 2 months
 4  Insomnia It seems to work well for me I rarely have trouble sleeping when I take it. My doctor and I have recently decided to up my dosage to a point where it may be useful for my depression. I will likely have a whole new view on the drug after using it for 2 years as purely a sleep medicine. M 25 2 years
 4  Dysthmia vivid dreams during the first month M 41 90 days

TRAZODONE HCL  (TRAZODONE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is used to treat depression. It may help to improve your mood, appetite, and energy level as well as decrease anxiety and insomnia related to depression. Trazodone works by helping to restore the balance of a certain natural chemical (serotonin) in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
