 1  Insomnia Night sweats, nightmares, racing heart, heavy chest/hard to breath, stuffy nose, flu/hangover-like feeling all day, increased appetite and hypoglycemia, severe brain fog and confusion, aching lower back (), nausea, upset stomach, extreme lethargy all day...GENERALLY ILL FEELING It worked ok for about 4-5 nights, but quickly stopped working altogether so I upped the dose to 75mg. Been patiently trying to ride out the side effects but I feel so AWFUL! I'm done with this crap! I have missed 5 days of work thanks to this terrible medication. F 35 14 days

 2  Sleeplessness Took 50mg at 10pm last night. Slept good, but woke up groggy. Its 3pm and I've got a bad headache, really tired, my neck hurts and dry mouth. Headache is a 6 or 7 on pain scale I'm afraid to take any tonight, don't want this headache to get any worse. F 64 1 days

 2  Insomnia Horrible grogginess for days on 50 MG went down to 25 MG, headaches, dry eyes. This medication stops working after a while. a couple weeks for me, after that you have to increase your dose. This medication also messes with your serotonin levels and interacts badly with some other meds. If you are looking for a long term solution for insomnia look elsewhere. F 23 4 weeks
25 MG

 2  Chronic Insomnia Took the pill at bedtime, but didnt fall asleep until five hours later at 7 am. Slept sound for nine hours, but woke up staggering and fell trying to answer the ringing doorbell. Frustrated because I lost my entire day after waking up being groggy and lightheaded. Don't understand why it would take five hours to start working. Was happy that I actually slept, but it was at a cost of losing my entire day. F 63 1 days
50 mg 1X D

 2  Sleep, Anxiety I was prescribed Trazodone for sleep. At first, it worked great. Unfortunately, I had to keep increasing the dose to have the desired effects, and I was sleepy ALL the time. DO NOT QUIT TRAZODONE ABRUPTLY. THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DOING SO ARE SLEEPLESSNESS, TWITCHING LEG MUSCLES, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY F 58 15 years

Dry mouth and blocked nose Dry mouth, blurred vision, headache, urine incontinence and clumsiness. Fatigue and painful muscles and joints.

 4  Sleep Terrible overall joint/muscle stiffness and pain-feet, arms,legs, back, even jaw! 2 weeks ago weaned to 12.5 and no abating of symptoms, even worse-maybe due to withdrawal starting? Will continue to eliminate altogether. This bone pain came on gradually weeks into taking it. Was not sure if it was the drug but after reading up on it, discovering others experiencing pain as well. Hopefully I will see it end after drug completely leaves body. My sleep is so far not been affected adversely with reduction to 12.5 MG. Getting 6 to 7 hours solid. Has anyone seen bone/joint pain go away after stopping drug? If so how long does it take. Has anyone seen bone/joint pain go away after stopping drug? If so how long does it take. F 59 10 months

 2  Sleep Sleepiness, dizziness, anxiety, lack of motivation I was on this drug for 15 years for sleep. In the beginning it was great for that. My body became dependent on it and it definitely caused big spikes in anxiety. I finally tapered and got off it three months ago, but am still feeling symptoms of withdrawal. My vote is stay away from this drug! Has anyone felt withdrawal symptoms this long? M 44 15 years

 2  Trouble falling asleep Vivid, awful nightmares and unbearable muscle (and maybe bone?) pain in wrists, arms and lower legs; likely exacerbated back and thigh pain that was already present. The pain appeared gradually until I could no longer take it (I'm told I have a high pain threshold) and discontinued use. I can't tell you if it even helped my sleep because I started it to replace seroquel. I tried discontinuing the latter and could not sleep with just the trazodone, so I ended up taking both, with my seroquel dosage reduced to a third. F 32 2 months

 5  Insomnia and anxiety Increased sex drive which has been amazing because I'm on 200mg of sertraline and have been numb ever since. Night sweats I'm glad I can enjoy sex again. I can get to sleep without hours of anxious thoughts and picking at myself. I feel fine in the morning once I'm up and had a coffee. I can sometimes sleep too much now which makes me a little dizzy for a while but I do eventually come round. The dreams have been amazing it's like watching a film staring me. I'm feeling a lot happier and a lot less anxious during the day and especially at night so I'm happy. I wish I was prescribed this years ago my husband notices a massive difference in me he says I'm radiating happiness at times. 28 0 months

 5  Insomnia/anxiety I love this meditation. I was originally prescribed this for insomnia so I took it at night. It really hasn't helped me too much with my sleep but I have had a dramatic shift in my mood, concentration and libido. I was not expecting this at all!!!! I am over joyed with how well I'm feeling. I also take 10 mg of for depression but we are weaning me off of that. F 44 21 days

 1  Insomnia Sleep for 4-5 hours soundly then wake up and bed feels like a rock. Tossing and turning for 2 hours and then able to sleep again. After being awake in the morning and eating breakfast need to sleep again. Constipated and need a laxative. Absolutely no help for insomnia. M 72 3 days

 5  Chronic insomnia I take 50mgs in the evening...at 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
