    Oh love - I am just about to start this tonight for my anxiety .. So sorry you're having a rough time. I'm not doing too brilliantly myself either, hence my Dr wanting to try this.

    How long have you been on it? .. Just going to read your thread xx

    Hi Giraffe

    Ive been on trazodone about 3 & a half months. It doesn't seem to have agreed with me too well hence I'm weaning off it.

    Some people have no trouble at all with it though so I hope it works for you.

    I think I'm probably tapering too quickly, the doctor said drop by 5mg a week but I really notice it each time I drop so actually might go back to 35 for another week. (Just dropped to 30 last night).

    Let us know how you get on x

    Thank you I hope they help. It's morning anxiety that's my problem, my Dr says she's had patient's have success with it so we shall see xx

    Re: Tapering off Trazodone

    If anyone is following this thread (!) im now down to 30mgs the last 3 nights. My sleep was great last week had 5 good nights in a row - sadly last night was very hit and miss, no idea how much I got but it wasn't a lot!

    Side effects still there (spaced out, dizziness, anxiety) but not as pronounced for now, trying to focus on the positive! Just had a chat with the pharmacist and she said dropping 5 a week sounds sensible and my body should just adapt to it. So will continue with the plan and see how it goes!

    Hopefully the side effects will be less the lower I go...!
