Anxiety and Stress Disorders

Trazodone Withdrawal

12/10/2007

Question:

What will happen if you don`t take your Trazadone for a couple of days in a row?

Answer:

Generally, it takes several days of missing Trazodone for its anti-depressant and chronic pain benefits to start to decrease.  However, when taken to assist with sleep, then missing one dose may make a difference.

While there are some anecdotal reports of withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, jitteriness or uncomfortable feelings, there is no generally recognized withdrawal syndrome. 

Good luck.
