Since I never had to take trazodone until two years ago, it seems like I should be able to quit taking it. I have always been prone to problems initiating sleep, but not every night, so if I go off the trazodone I might still occasionally need to take an Ambien or something, but no trazodone. (The trazodone just helps me stay asleep.) I am worried that Celexa/Effexor/Prozac may have permanently messed up my sleep. I just want to sleep like I used to-- eight hours without waking up in the middle of the night and without being groggy in the morning! Actually, if that were possible on trazodone I wouldn't mind staying on it too much (although it would bother me some), but as I said I am not sleeping well with it anyway. I wake up after 5-6 hours sleep which leaves me quite tired. The ony alternative seems to be sleeping 9 hours and waking up groggy!
