I was just prescribed Trazodone HCL 50mg. tabs for insomnia.

I was just prescribed Trazodone HCL 50mg. tabs for insomnia. Everything I am reading about it has it. associated with depression, which I do not have. The studies I have read about also tie in insomnia with depression.
I am very concerned about taking this, since I do not have depression, which is the main use for this drug.

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.

I have been taking this inconsistently but want to take 2 at night to see if it helps me. I am a 52 year old woman with hot flashes. Safe to take 2 at bedtime? Thank you

I have suffered from insomnia for the past three months or more and have been prescribed Trazadone and three different dosages of Belsomra. None of these medications have helped me sleep more than three hours a night. The 20 mg of Belsomra makes me feel like a doped up zombie, but I guess it works the best but only because I am too high to get out of bed and I hate feeling like this. Do I have any other options? I feel like I am losing my mind and I can t work this way.
