Trazodone 150 Mg Tablets
If you are an adult with depression (also called clinical depression or major depression), trazodone hydrochloride (Desyrel®) may help relieve your symptoms. This medicine is taken by mouth, typically after eating. Most people tolerate it well; if side effects occur, they tend to be mild and easy to treat.
Although brand-name trazodone tablets are no longer available, generic trazodone is available in three strengths:
- 50 mg trazodone tablets
- 100 mg trazodone tablets
- 150 mg trazodone tablets.
The recommended starting dosage when treating depression is 150 mg per day, divided into two or three doses per day. Your healthcare provider may choose to increase this amount if symptoms continue, or decrease the dose if side effects occur.
