Trazodone Tablets

Trazodone hydrochloride (Desyrel®) is a prescription drug used to treat depression in adults. The medicine is typically taken one to three times a day and comes in the form of a tablet. Trazodone is generally well tolerated, but side effects are possible. In clinical studies, common side effects included headache, drowsiness, and dry mouth.
Although brand-name trazodone tablets are no longer available, generic versions are available in three strengths:
  • 50 mg
  • 100 mg
  • 150 mg.
Because the medication is better absorbed by the body after eating, it's a good idea to take trazodone after a meal or a snack. If the medicine makes you drowsy, try taking it before bedtime.
