It's both. I've heard many people say it's not an effective AD, but it was for me. It took almost a month for the AD effect to kick in, but once it did, my depression lifted almost completely.

I found I only needed to take 50mg at bedtime for it to be effective.

In the beginning, the morning grogginesss was extreme. I literally walked into walls. After a few weeks, it went away.

I didn't notice any dry mouth problem in the years I took it, but I did gain weight. I have no idea if the weight gain was do to the trazodone or my failing thyroid gland. Probably the thyroid.

Once my body adjusted, I thought trazodone was great.
