I take 50-100 mgs of trazadone at night for sleep. usually it works within 20-30 minutes and when it does, it is simply a sleep bomb for me.

I have found that taking trazadone with food seems to help it work better on nights that i am just refractory to sleep and that usually does the trick.

I don't wake up tired the next day, in fact, I feel pretty good, but I have never taken 150 mgs.

As always be sure that you maintain good sleep habits - keep your bedroom dark and cool, try to go to bed at the same time every night, lay off the caffeine after the mornings and don't exercise in the evenings. Also, if you don't fall asleep with 20-30 minutes, get up, don't just lie in the bed miserable.

Also we tend to get sleepy when our body temperature drops, so sometimes taking a bath or a shower before bed can expedite that temperature dropping and promote sleep.

If the trazadone doesn't work after all that, I would see my doc and get something else. You've got to sleep.
