??? for people who take trazodone for sleep
« on: January 29, 2014, 07:37:34 PM »
How long before you go to bed do you take your trazodone? I was switched off of ambien, which I took approx 15 min before bed. However, since I started taking the trazodone, I am going to bed at the same time and I'm looking at the ceiling for what seems like hours.

Any suggestions? I was going to take it approx 1 hour before and see what happens.

Just because I understand an acknowledge what I am worrying about is silly, doesn't mean I'm able to stop worrying about it.

I was instructed to take it around 8:30 and to go to bed no later than 10pm. I usually get pretty tired around an hour after I take it. I find that it allows me to get to sleep, but does not make me sleep. It does a decent of helping me stay asleep. Where Ambien  really was for getting to sleep quickly , but does. not help later into the night.

I did 1 hour before bedtime. Ambien seems to work for me in about 15 minutes though.

It worked for me many years ago for insomnia. But after taking it last night do to a week of insomnia it did nothing.... I took it around 9 pm, felt sleepy and relaxed then it seemed to just wear off. No sleep. Does it take time to work or is this a sign it's not going to work for me this time?
