I take Trazodone 50 MG. My family physician prescribed Trazadone

I take Trazodone 50 MG. My family physician prescribed Trazadone for depression and to help me sleep. I went to a Neurologist to ask for an MRI because I am having a constant headache, a loss of some balance, fatigue, flashes of pain in my head, sore places if pressed with my fingers, tinnitus, some nausea (no vomiting), etc. She ordered an MRI, but she also prescribed Venlafaxine HCL ER 37.5 mg to be taken daily with food. Yes, I have a diagnosis of chronic depression and social anxiety disorder. I am concerned about taking 2 meds for the same thing by 2 different doctors. Yes, the Neurologist knew all the meds I am taking prior to prescribing Venlafaxine. The information I received at the Pharmacy says the med can cause vision problems. I just had cataract surgery on my left eye. I am having cataract surgery on my right eye in days. I really, really do not want to have vision or any other complications resulting from taking the meds prescribed. Do you see a problem? (I do plan to call the Neurologist on Monday and ask her.)

Dr I am a 70 year old retired woman that had a very high phase job. I have Anxiety and has been treated with Alplazolan since 1990 which really keeps my ansiety under control. I went to a new Doctors since I moved from Miami to Asheville with my 100 Permanently disable husband. A few days ago I saw my doctor which is the same doctor taking care of my husband under a Pain Management Contyract. All of a sudden he told me he has to put me in a withdraw program to take meout of Alprazolan because they discovered that Alprazolan has a link with Alzheimer. He gave me Trazodone 50 mg as a replacement. I do research and under this new medicine one of th side effects is if I have in my family a history of heart attacks. YES On my father side 2 male die of it. On my mother side my granfather died of a heart attack and My son I guess if he dosent take care of himself is a candidate for a heart attack since his father and grand father ( his father ) both had massive heart attacks. If males in my family are having hearts attacks of course I must live a llife of good weight and accordingly even if I am a female and this applies only to males. Also another medicine that I was given for my knees pain I needed to tell my doctor that YES I have a rough line of suicides in my family. It is on both side. My grandmother hot herself when I was 15, my father cousing shot himself, my brothr after getting a live transplant in Mayo Clinic lost his business and hung himself from the thir floor of his business office. In that same year my mothers sister son shot his head because they choke with stress and blew his head leaving 3 girls and 1 boy. I do not drink. I do not smoke. I do not take chemical drugs prescribed by anyone. I only take my Alprazolan when I have too much anxiety because I have a flool plate with my husband degenerative bone decease. It is tough but I am a tough woman. I am aware of the inheritance of genes a lot. My granfather came out of John Hopkins but the dysfuctionally was horrible. I solve dysfunctionally because I was not going to be another incident in my family and took a plane and got away from all of them. I reached all my goals. Had a majjor important job for 25 years, I bank with the same bank for 25 years and I have been a volutary teacher for the USFedCourt Southern District since after separating from my job I became an OSHA Outreach Construction/ Roadwork and Maritime. I have an excellent amount of letter for being highly organized, etc. I goy married three years ago and I am happy here with my Vet husband helping him because they were really prescribing him things that did not apply and I took/recommended him to leave the VA and go private. This is how we both have the same Primary Physician. I have no intention of discontinuin the use of my Alprazolan regardless of the consequences. But using unfounded info that I can proove like a letter from a medical investigation last year that was not able to link between Alprazolan with Alzheiner is luducres since that study was done, it was never implemented. I was told by a friend of mine who is a Dr but I cannot bring him into the situation. He told me that they are doing this because my husband is under strong medication, his situation is serious but why this now. I really dont like medications but I am not going to take something that is for bipolar or worse since at my age I am still active and healty. I am a Type A person. Professional. And very healthy for my age. Please advice.

Hi, Can I take trazadone 50 mg for sleep,when I just started naltrexone hcl 1.5 mg capsule two nights ago? The ldn is to help recover my cells. My doctor overdosed me on estrogen and progesterone and lead to my brain swelling. I ve been off of the hormones for six weeks. now I realize my brain needs more sleep. But, ambien only keeps me asleep for 1 1/2 hours. I m desperate for sleep. I was told to go to emergency room and check in so they can prescribe something. I want to take this trazodone right now to sleep during today to catch up. My sister will stay with me this weekend while I do this daytime and nighttime sleep marathon.
