    Default Trazodone Withdrawl

    Hi,
    Has anyone managed a patient going through Trazodone withdrawl? A patient of mine went cold turkey against my advice.

    Thanks

    I went cold turkey from trazadone (150mgs/pm).I experienced edginess and what felt like low blood pressure.I would be standing and all of the sudden I would feel faint(it would pass) and I never did faint.I went back on the trazadone and the symptons dissapeared.I then weened myself off like my doctor told me and everything was fine......Dave

    Trazodone can be a a bit mean to a person coming off of it.
    Major problems are extreme agression and rage.
    If it isn't already evident, try to keep a buddy nearby. If he expresses thoughts of violent behavior, YOU OR AN ER DOC on the phone might be able to coax him into to a FRIENDLY visit to the ER for a quiet counter-measure of "gentle meds".
    A lot depends on his daily intake when he stopped.
    The Best of Wishes to You.
