In reply to Re: ANYONE ELSE TRIED TRAZADONE? , posted by afatchic on August 2, 2001, at 17:45:26

Trazadone works fairly well for sleep, but it does have a few side effects at higher doses, mainly anticholinergic, that made me stop taking it. Although it is an AD, it is used at clinically subtherapeutic levels for sleep.

I have had sleep problems for years. I take Wellbutrin ( which can cause sleep disturbances, but I take it early) and take some Tranzene at night, but I still wake at least 4 times a night.

Does anyone know of any reliable sleep med that doesn't poop out (e.g. tolerance to benzos)? My Pdoc has tried all the anti-seizure meds like neurontin, topamax and the like, but only the benzos have seemed to help me. I tried Ambien and Sonata. Ambien was OK, but I became tolerant to it. Sonata will put me to sleep, but I will wake up in 4 hours. I also think it may have caused exacerbation of my sometime panic attack problem. Anybody have any experience along these lines? Anybody still get old-line hypnotics like the barbituates for sleep? Oh yes, why is it considered worse to be "hooked" on a med than to live like a zombie form lack of sleep?
