I suffer from insomnia and depression. This medication lets me ease into a refreshing sleep without the nightmares of other sleep meds.

I have been taking this drug for at least 15 years for severe insomnia after someone broke into my home while I slept. It has been a fantastic drug to put me to sleep and keeps me asleep all night. Does not cause hangover effect at all for me in the morning.

I have been using this for several years now and have found it to be a wonderfull drug. It allows me to fall asleep within 30 mins. I had always had big trouble going to sleep because my head would just not stop. I can not stop thinking. Now after a very short time this drug allows my head to slow down enough to finally fall asleep. I am very happy with this drug.

This medication was prescribed for insomnia. It has been very effective so far. I have been taking it for about three weeks with no side effects.

This is been an absolute answer to prayers for me. I have suffered from insomnia for years and tried many drugs, often resulting in weight gain or "hangovers" from the strength of the drug. Desyrel lets me get a full night's sleep and leaves me feeling well rested in the morning.

I have had trouble sleeping since my menopause days. Have tried other meds but still woke up at night. Some meds caused me to be too sleepy in the morning. But Trazodone allowed me to get a great night sleep and wake up alert and ready for the day.

I have had chronic insomnia for years.Ambien and finally Valium assisted temporarily. However I became dependent on the Valium. Switching to Trazadone helped me get free of the Valium addition (over 3 weeks). I now sleep well with 150mg at bed. Some dry mouth but I feel great...wow!

Works well for sleep I actually get into REM stage sleep and dreaming again. A person I know takes 200-300mg and she behaves with extreme hostily and anger towards peopleI think some people become psychotic on this med.
