> Hello recently a new physciatrist (sp) has taken me off of ambien and put me on trazodone he also added another med called lamictal but i am also on wellbutrin lithobid and risperdal per day. My problem is since i have been taking the lamictal and the traz I do not know which would be causing these problems i am having. When on the ambien I was up and ready to get stuff done by 8 am now it seems i dont even wake up till 9:30 or 10:00 then i feel as though my head is going to explode and i feel as though i have been out on a drunk
> during the day. My head is all cloudy and its like i am in a tunnel. Could these be side effects from either of these meds? They seem to me as it become alittle dangerous ecspecially when I am driving with my children
> Thank you Tressa


I've been on Trazodone for many months.
Initially I was on 50 mg. It puts me to peaceful sleep in an hours time. The trouble is waking up in the morning with a goggy head and trouble walking properly.

I've since cut down to 25 mg (cutting the tablets into half) and it still works, with less side effects. I think 25 mg is the optimum sleep dosage unless you have very serious insomnia, which you will need 50 mg (and that takes about 12 hours to clear away completely...)
