It went well. There was nothing to be nervous about.  But I got Zoloft and Trazadone. Trazadone to help me sleep..but it has not made me a bit drowsy at all.  When I go back is it ok to try and suggest something else to take??? Or a stronger dose?/

Is it that it didnt make you feel drowsy or that it didnt help you sleep?  I'd say that if you were able to sleep a good 6-8 hrs without the drowsy feeling before or after thats a good thing.  if it didnt help you sleep at all definitely tell the doc.

I am on both of those. Starting Thursday is a little soon to see much affect. When you go in for the med check, just be honest with the dr. More than likely he/she will raise the dose or change it. I am on 200mg of Trazodone(taken at night) and 150 mg zoloft(taken in the morning). It took a good two weeks before the Trazodone had the sleepy affect on me.

it is perfectly fine to suggest something else or ask for something else. i cant believe the trazodone didnt work for you . that stuff used to knock me out. you must be hard to get to sleep. i hope you find what you need. glad things went so well for you.

Yeah..the doctor told me to take 1/2 for the first couple of days.  Then if my sleeping is not where I want it then to take a whole one. So tonight I will.  But damn....I hope it works!! She told me it would only take 2 hours or so to kick in.

My bf takes massive amounts of trazadone and it still doesn't help him sleep. Ask for something different

 Yes it is ok to request that.  It takes a few times of trying to get the meds right
