Trazodone medication: What are some important things for me to know? 

Trazodone medication does not give immediate relief, but may take up to four weeks before you actually begin to feel better.  Most patients notice some improvement within approximately 2 weeks however. 

When should trazodone medication not be prescribed? 

If you’ve ever been sensitive or allergic to trazodone or similar medications, you should probably not take this antidepressant. You should always make sure that your doctor is aware of any drug reactions you experience when on this or any medications. 

What if I am pregnant or breast-feeding? 

The effects of trazodone medication have not been adequately studied during pregnancy.  If you’re pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant in the near future, you should talk to your physician immediately.  This medicine may appear in breast milk.  If trazodone medication is absolutely essential to your health, your doctor may recommend that you discontinue breast-feeding your baby until your treatment with trazodone medication is complete.
