Trazadone Not Working - Now What?
My doctor recently prescribed trazadone for my occasional sleeplessness. Problem is it doesn't seem to work very well. I don't fall asleep very fast, and I wake up off and on all night. I used to take Ambien but was not a fan of it - and some new info (according to my doc) indicates that it can be addictive. She thought trazadone would be a good alternative. Ambien worked for me. I fell asleep quickly, stayed asleep for about 6 - 8 hours and had no 'hangover.' Benedryl made me groggy in the morning, so those OTC sleep aids aren't helpful. If trazadone doesn't work, then what? What's working for the rest of you? I need to sleep! :sleeping:
