    Traz makes me tired when I take my 150mg dose of it. I generally take half of my 100mg tablet instead and just break up my total dose through out the day to prevent me from becoming extremely groggy.

    I take my 600 mgs at night which helps me get a sleep for a wee while.

    Definitely. It has helped me sleep but I haven't woken up refreshed in a long long time.

    I'm on 150mg and I am exhausted every day. I never used to sleep much until I started taking it and now I can easily sleep 8/9 hours a night. The tiredness is affecting my life so badly I am now changing to Venlafaxine.

    Are you taking this at low doses for insomnia, or at above 200mg as an antidepressant? If the latter, are you on an immediate- or slow-release formulation?

    This is because you're probably on a sub therapeutic dose for anxiety/depression. Trazodone only reliably begins to become an effective antidepressant at about 200-225mg/day. Below this it mostly only acts as a very sedating antihistamine plus 5-HT2A antagonist. The slow-release version (Oleptro) is usually less sedating as it better maintains blood levels above the sedation threshold. The usual dose range is 300-600mg.

    I recommend reading Stephen Stahl's "Mechanism of Action of Trazodone: a Multifunctional Drug" (PDF) for insights on this, imho much underrated, antidepressant.

    It's an ancient thread, PDU, Greg has greatly moved on since then with his treatment. The Olanzapine was knocking him out big time.

    Hey terry says this is a very old thread..i ended up on 250mg for a long time which was making me sleep for hrs along side my olanzipine..iv been on 100ml now for a few months because the doctors have assessed me and decided they are going to put me on something eles and fade out the trazzadone as its sleep aid has stoped working now and is not helping my mental health in any way.since getting down to 100ml my sleep is so minimal,very broken sleep every night.i will wake at least 4 times over a 7 hr period and eventualy wake around 6am and im up..even with this briken sleep im.not waking nakered or dont know whats going on nervious about starting a new medication because iv allways had realy bad side effects on any medication iv tried..i dont know what this new med will be as yet,but will do in a couple of weeks after the doctors have decided on which one to try me on
    Anxiety,depression...5mg olanzipine,,,200mg trazadone

    Yes it makes me tired too. Unless this i can't sleep but when i get up i feel so tired and takes long time to refresh. May be its a common problem, so don't be worried.
