I have been on trazadone, it can be sedating so make sure you take it at night. For me it helped a bit. I didn't feel zonked out or anything though. I hope it works for you.

Hi horsegirl. I started taking trazodone beginning 2013 to treat severe anxiety. Started on 50mg at night.Slept like a log smile felt rather woozy the first morning but soon got used to it. Now on 100mg, it does help with the anxiety and I find I sleep really well on it. I am also on fluoxetine.

Really hope it helps you, take care.
