    Default Trazodone tapering advice?

    i take 150mg Trazodone nightly for insomnia. After many years it has stopped working. My research shows that some people have no trouble stopping it and others do. I am tapering off 20mg of Valium (Ashton Method) and would like to know how to taper off the Trazodone. Doc says I can just stop taking it, but I have read too many horror stories to follow that advice. Also, would love to hear from anyone who stopped taking it and had no symptoms. Thank you. Briards

    Hi. I was on 3 150mg tablets of Trazodone nightly for 3 years. Sounds like a lot - but lower doses did nothing. I got sick of feeling groggy every morning, so I stopped it with no taper. I has zero withdrawal symptoms. BUT since you're already tapering from benzodiazepines, I would wait until you are finished to consider stopping Trazodone. It will help you sleep during the benzo taper. Just suggesting

    Welcome! If it were me, i'd follow Kevin's advice & taper off the benzos first before the trazodone. One step at a time. Don't want to to overwhelm yourself. Keep your doctor in the loop re your valium taper. Post when u like...
