    Trazodone was given to me 2 treat my insomnia and it has really helped. It also doubles as an anti-depressant and has made me feel better overall. No side-effects! It's a great med.

    I experienced extreme depression (which I have never had) with a loss for a love of life overall. I had a strong metallic taste in my mouth. I was very agitated and I still could not sleep. It differently was not the medication for me. I was on 50mg daily. The doctor did not think that could happen from a low dose but I had no problem stopping the medication and all was better.

    I have been taking one 100mg of Trazodone for 8 months now before bed. It has made a huge difference with my insomnia. I take it an hour before I will be in bed and it's lights out after that. I love that I can still wake up for my children at night and not be so out of it that I can't function when I may need to.

    Trazodone has been a miracle sleep medicine for me. I've been taking it for 2 years and am sleeping better than I have in 30 years. I usually take 50mg, occasionally 100mg depending on what's going on that day, about 1 hour before bedtime. I sleep for about 8 hours and have not noticed any side effects.
