Taking Trazodone to sleep
« on: January 15, 2014, 06:45:36 PM »
Hi all. I have a bit of a weird/embarrassing question to ask. I take Trazodone to sleep. I used to take Ambien, and recently switched. OK, now for my "thing". Sometimes I will wake up in the middle of the night, let the dogs out to pee (I have one that has seizures and because of her meds, can't hold her bladder) then after they come back in I go pee. Almost every night, I sit on the toilet and I wonder "am I awake or asleep, and am I in the correct place to actually pee?"

Not sure why this happens. I have never gone anywhere else, and never had a problem with it.  Just seems to be one of those strange things....

Anyone else willing to admit this or any other strange thing????

I was told by my doctor today that trazadone can cause propianism(an erection that doesn't go away) in males and this can be serious.

Trazadone doesn't really help me to sleep anymore, and it's kind of hard on my stomach and liver. It used to work great though.

I actually take Trazodone (75mg) and I got that odd feeling like I don't know if I am having a dream or I am doing something in real life.  It caused very vivid dreams for the first few days and that what gave me the feeling. It has since stopped.

That happened to me after I first started taking Ambien to sleep. I have since switched off that, but may go back, it helps more than what I'm currently taking.
