    I have chronic back pain and cannot sleep at night due to the severe pain. I take this at bedtime and it does help but If I eat something before I take the pill it doesnt work at all for me. Its almost like the food absorbs it. So I make sure I dont eat 1-2 hours before I take it. No other prescription sleep meds have worked for me, so this is wonderful!!

I'm only taki ... Show Full Comment

    I've used trazodone for a little over a year now. Falling asleep has always been a problem for me, but I am able to drift away nicely each night. Before bed I seem to get the 'munchies' if you will. Food just seems to taste really good. Occaisionally, I wake in the middle of the night and have ice cream or something to eat. I think that because I used to have trouble sleeping, ... Show Full Comment
