Hi, Been months since I've been on here, long story. Anyway, I've been on Trazodone 100mgs since May 2014 which is great for my depression and no weight gain, in fact I've lost weight & it reduces my appetite. However, it's not good for sleep. Initially it helped me go to sleep but I wasn't staying asleep so I was shattered which led to a lot of pain especially in my neck & shoulders. I've shunned going back on Amitriptyline due to the problems of weight gain I had over 8 yrs or so when using it. However.I miss the good sleep I used to have. Now I rely on sleeping pills but am in pain most of the time. My GP always recommends drugs that cause weight gain or other side effects so I turn them down but I can't carry on like this. Just wondering if anyone has taken or takes Trazodone for depression with good effect, like me but takes a very low dose of Amitriptyline for sleep as well?? Does it help? Thanks NWG.
