I go to sleep at 10;pm after taking 50mg. TRAZADONE, I sleep for three or four hours and wake up. If I try to go to sleep again I will doze off for a few seconds and wake up short of breath. Each time I doze off I wake up. I'm up all night, and sometimes in the morning I can sleep for an hour if it lets me. I had bypass surgery four months ago. Can anyone relate to this? I also bloat. Stomach gets extended and breathing becomes difficult. It will go away, sometimes in a few minutes. I am 85 years old. The surgery was easy, but the problems they say are ssociated with it are taking their toll. Please reply.

Can you see about upping your dose of trazodone? How long have you been on it?

Maybe it's not the right med.


Bless your heart, Charlie. I would check with your doctor about this - it may be that the Trazodone is not suiting you so well and a change of medication may be in order. Good luck!
