Welcome to Connect, @barb1949.
I’m bringing in @sndishpr @sdixon @sandij @humanehuman @phxlife @kdo0827 as they’ve all shared their insights about Trazodone.
In this discussion, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/cbd-oil-for-neuropathy/ @margottaylor also mentions, “I've been using CBD oil for about two months for sleep and its fabulous. No more Trazodone! I'm now in California for a couple of weeks and went to a dispensary and got an ointment with a 1:1 THC and CBD. “
Could you share a few more details, @barb1949? How long have you been taking Trazodone? Did it help with your sleep?

I’m still taking Trazadone because I am pretty hooked on it. I don’t really notice many side effects. But this could be because I take several meds and don’t know what side effects are from what.
I have been on Trazodone since 1992. I have been taking 150mg. Starting having sleeping problems again so doctor increased it to 200mg. I want to get off this med.
I start having withdraws when I try to cut back on it. Anxiety gets overwhelming. Sweats and cold chills
Hi, @ barb1949 – wondering why you are looking at potentially tapering off this medication?
I was on trazodone for about 4 months and it made my hips knees hurt like I was 90 years old. I had to buy one of those micro scales on Amazon to slice away minute amounts of trazadone but each time it would send me through a whirlwind.
I was at my wits end and found CBD, technically it was a vape of the AC/DC strain. The withdrawal was gone almost immediately and within a month I was off of it.
The AC/DC strain that is high in CBD also got me off of Trazodone. I thought I would be stuck on that drug, but the high CBD took the withdrawal to basically nothing. what a miracle CBD was for me.
Does anyone have the experience using Ac/Dc getting off Clonazepam?
Hi @harryzinger and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. That is great that you were able to use CBD to get you completely off of a controlled medication.
Were you on the trazodone for sleep issues or something else?
