Trazodone is a very sedating anti-depressant. I am not aware of any cases of its use as a first- or second-line treatment for schizophrenia, or being a treatment at all. However, the sedating properties of Trazodone maay, as Jelly noted, help with hallucinations and especially sleep.

Many antipsychotics are also very sedating, so I would think your mother would do better one one of these medications.
