Brief Answer:
It would not be illegal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

No, it is not illegal for a doctor tor prescribe trazadone for 2 days. Some times trazadone is prescribed for a short duration as a sleep aid. For it to work as an antidepressant however, you would need to take it as an ongoing medication for a few weeks to see the benefits.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify or provide further information.
