Hi,

Just wondering: how long after I take trazodone should I expect to be able to sleep? Is it fast acting? I know it's meant to help you stay asleep, as opposed to knocking you out, but is there any specific protocol with this? I just started taking it again after an 11 month vacation and so far, it ain't werkin'. ;)

Thanks guys!

you might have to play with your dose, but for me (at 50mg), i notice an effect in about 20-30 mins. i have heard tho that there is a window of opportunity which passes. so be prepared to go to bed and be ready to sleep asap after taking it. i take mine, brush my teeth etc, and then go lie down. i am generally out in 10 mins. and this is after having hardcore insomnia that kept me up all night for years.

hope it works out for you!

I am so glad you got a great night's sleep! The traz doesn't have the same kinda whomp that something like ambien does ... so it can be easy to miss the sleep train if you're waiting for that!

oh happy is the day after a good night's sleep!

My nephew sometimes has to take it and he's found that it works best (for him) if he takes it with food.

Not because of tummy troubles or anything, but it seems to kick in better for him.

It did the same thing for my half-brother as well.

Don't know if that's just a male thing or what. But I know that if he doesn't eat something when he takes it, then it just doesn't seem to work.

Just anecdotal info.
