>I didn't know it was even used as an antidepressant thought just for sleep? Phillipa

Trazodone was introduced as an antidepressant. It was originally promoted as a drug which was less dangerous in overdose than tricyclic antidepressants, and less anticholinergic. Unfortunately, it also seems to be less effective for depression. Dizziness, sedation and nausea are often quite prominent initially. It isn't much used for depression these days. It can help sleep but it tends to cause a 'hangover'. It has no abuse potential so it's been quite popular for insomnia in alcoholics.
