Hey!

Sorry about your problems.

Personally, I think benzos might be a problem because your insomnia and social phobia seems so chronic. I don't think dependence is so much an issue as tolerance. If you take a benzo regularly, it tends to lose its effect and you have to raise the dose. [this doesn't always happen, of course]

I've taken ativan for years (2-4mg day depending on situations) and may be dependent (who cares) but I think because my dosing is for "episodes" and is not regular, I haven't ever had to raise my average dose.

I've always noticed that the excessive effect of Trazadone seems to wear off with time. I would seriously consider asking a pharmacist to compound 10 mg capsules, or else just use quarter chunks of the pills (catch the dust over a glass of water before you drink it). Make sure you don't mix it with alcohol, since in my experience that increases the "drug hangover effect."
