Withdrawal from Trazodone. Need hope

Posted by extra @extra, Apr 22 3:11pm

I am on day 10 trying to wean off 50mg of Trazodone. Taking it to sleep about 6months. This is terrible. I am dizzy and weak. Very anxious. Sometimes nauseated. Have to force myself to eat Trouble walking. I am under a Dr’s care but no one helping. I got off Xanax easier. Anyone successful at this? I need hope.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Addiction & Recovery Support Group.

I had a very successful withdrawl off of Trazodone. I was taking 100mg nightly until I collasped in my bathroom and hit my head causing a severe concussion. That was my last time using Trazodone. After that I used lorazepam .5mg for quite a while but was eventually done. Three weeks ago I started using Amitriptlyne for headaches. I take .25mg before bed and I get relaxed and get a great night sleep. Good luck, try to get more support from your doctors office. Mine were so helpful wish the same for you.


Hi. I have been involved in taking myself off a different antidepressant, Cymbalta, for the past two years. As I became symptomatic from withdrawals, I found a few Facebook groups that have guided me through taper and provided much needed emotional support. Seems there are a lot of people getting off antidepressants but it is a slow tedious, difficult task. One group I use is called Surviving Antidepressants. You might look up Traz on Facebook to see if others are on your journey. Best to you.
