last ?? for a while (I hope!): trazadone?

Posted by racer on December 30, 1998, at 19:08:17

The other day I saw a nurse at the county mental health service. She's going to try to get me some better care, but there's still only the one doctor available to me. Since we obviously are not a good match, I'd like to ask the question here, too:

This nurse will be presenting my case to the "team" there, and thinks that the suggestion of adding Trazadone will come up. She says that it helps relieve the sleeplessness and so on that I've been having on serzone, and that it may help with the ineffectiveness of the serzone.

Now, mind you, I'm a pain in the ass as a patient, because I do know my medical history, and I do know my medication history, and I am very very wary of trying new drugs. The bad effects that I've had from anti-depressants in the past have certainly put me in the catagory of patients who would rather have root canals daily than stay on most for any length of time. Drugs in general worry me a lot, I don't even take anti-biotics without discussing them with the doctor. So, that said, can anyone offer any thoughts on this combination? The serzone is better than any other a/d that I've been on, but it's not as effective, and I am having these other problems because of it. (Including that "just stuck my finger in a light socket" feeling.)

So, serzone and trazadone? Good, bad, indifferent? Clinical, anecdotal, empirical? Anything noncommercial would help.

Thanks again
