Trazodone helps my sleep deprivation but may be caused other issues.
Trazodone helped my sleep pattern of 3-4 hours per night, improving that to 5 to 6 hours, and sometimes even 7. This has been a relief, but I have noticed a lessening of ability to enjoy things, e.g. poor appetite, loss of sense of humor, agonizing over political matters, reduced interest in activities formerly enjoyed. Increased sense of caregiver burnout is a big thing, after nearly nine years, 24/7. Now I am wondering if I need to wean myself off the Trazodone. I don't take any other mood or anxiety medication due to side effects. I work out about an hour every day, read, do brain exercises daily, and often play gospel music for people in nursing homes, so it's not a matter of being inactive. Any suggestions are welcome.
