Apr 25, 2017 · Biology question in Digestive Health

@blindeyepug: I ask about it being addictive because I found the following on the Internet:

“But monitoring a patient to decide the dosage is essential, because the drug has numerous side effects when it is abused, and has a potential to be very addictive. As both an antidepressant and a sleeping pill, Trazodone has now become the 17th-most abused drug in the USA.Aug 22, 2014”

Say has potential to be very addictive. But this was found on INTERNET, so should I take this with a grain of salt ?

Thanks.

@kyjeanne, Is advice to take something like Trazodone something that should be taken on the say of a regular M.D. or should it only be taken if advised to do so by a doctor specially trained in sleep disorders ? My MD is prescribing it for me and I am very hesitant to do this on his advice alone. Thanks.

Sounds like you are saying that it is habit forming or that you may become dependent on the Trazodone to sleep. Have you talked to anyone else who tends to confirm that this medicine may be habit forming ? Thanks.

May I ask what was the purpose of your taking the Prednisone, what was it supposed to accomplish for you ? Did you stop taking it on the advise of your doctor or did you stop taking it on your own ? Thanks.

Are you saying that the Trazodone did not cause you to start having vivid dreams or are you saying that it stop you from having vivid dreams that you were having before taking it ? I am already having stressful dreams and I want to know if Trazodone will get rid of them. Thanks.

Does this Trazodone stop the vivid dreams from occurring and are there any detrimental side effects to taking it ? Is it habit forming ?

It is my understanding that having dreams (but not vivid / stressful ones) are a beneficial and necessary part of sleeping.

P.S. – I have been taking Prilosec for a little over 2 weeks now and the stomach burning, dreams and waking up continues every night/sleep period just like before. Other doctors have tried this PPI (and most all of the other ones) before with basically no effect and some have actually seemed to make things worse.

Thanks.

Gray: I have had autoimmune testing and they “said” that all of that was not applicable to me. However, you mentioning sinus problems reminded me that whenever I am awakened with the dreams and burning stomach and when I spit in the sink afterwards, I have noticed that my saliva looks white and milky (and this is whether I have eaten my milk and cereal or not) looking but during the day (non-sleeping periods) my saliva looks normal/clear. Have sometimes wondered if something could be draining from my head into my stomach but then I generally do not have any regular/ongoing sinus problems. Thanks.

Teresa: No, I have not. My understanding is that what those doctors primarily diagnose and treat are things related to sleep apnea, breathing patterns, etc. Thought at one time that my problem might be related to breathing thru my mouth when asleep but I have eliminated that as the cause. Think I am going to try the therapist route first (to see if this is psychosomatic) and then if that does not pan out, might see a sleep specialist. Thanks.
