Brief Answer:
A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor can be used

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

other antidepressants can be used instead of trazodone if side effects or ineffectiveness make its use pointless. A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) can be used. Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a popular choice nowadays because it's a well tolerated drug and patient compliance is satisfactory.

Kind Regards!
