trazodone not working
« on: March 04, 2014, 01:08:24 PM »
So I know some of you that replied to my other post know that I was taken off the Seroquel and put on latuda and trazodone. Well the latuda is 20mg I take it at night not sure what its doing yet or anything to be honest and I take the trazodone..well I was prescribed 50mg of it and wow all I felt MAYBE was a little drowsy that's it. I know I should not have but after two nights of the 50mg I decided to see if 100mg would work that really didn't work too much either. I probably got real good sleep about 4am, maybe very light sleep before that. I mean I have went from a hard hit like Seroquel which made me feel a little high like and knocked out in 2 seconds to this. I don't wanna go back to the Seroquel cause of the weight gain and plus it did leave me without energy the next day depending on how much I took...which was usually 75mg to 100mg!!! So am I just gonna have to get used to this crossover??? How do I train my brain to just get to sleep like before my breakdown!!! Because I am considering not taking the trazodone anymore and I really don't know what else I could use for sleep.

It may take your brain a little while to adjust after Seroquel, so give it time. Also try taking the trazodone an hour earlier.
