It's well tolerated at the 18 mg dose, but it made me tired. Maybe it was the lack of sleep? Older posts here say the serotonin effects kick in at higher doses. Perhaps a low dose of Trazodone will help with sleep?

Hi former poster, I thought you were Willful before, but you were just referring to them... sorry. Thanks for the reply!

It feels like a heatwave here to me...

Trazodone makes me manic. I have an energy deficit from Fibromyalgia and the Ensam is really helping with that and my really bad anxiety cuz I have Panic Disorder. It is cutting down my pain levels too.

Did you ever have the case where the amount of the dosage depended on the situations you found yourself in, or does it go one dosage no matter what, because I thought I was good, then got a lot of problems and now need to up the dose? Will I need to lower the dose when my problems go away? I am worried about serotonin syndrome because my doc still has me on Trileptal, but I've been fine so far.

Love to you
