I got Trazodone (sold under the name of Trittico in my country) prescribed as an off-label medication for my insomnia. It didn't work on its own but it does work pretty well in addition to the only sleeping medication that actually works well for me which is zolpidem tartrate. I have not used it on its own for depression or anxiety so I have no idea how well it works for those.

Does that stuff make you hallucinate? They used to give it to me in the hospital and tell me to go and lie down. So I'd go to bed and watch all these strange things hanging off the curtain rods - it was pretty weird. I was so relaxed from it that it didn't worry me, it was sort of fun to watch.

Hi! No, I've never experienced hallucinations before. I was actually told by my GP that Trazodone could give me hallucinations (my psychiatrist disagreed and it never happened anyway). So I have no explanation for what happened to you. All I know about zolpidem tartrate is that it used to make me fall asleep after 20 mins and now it's not working that well anymore so it's anywhere between 40 mins-1 hour. Still better than laying awake in my bed for hours


I don't know why there isn't a sleeping medications sub-thread in the medications thread yet. I bet many people with anxiety take sleeping pills.

I actually looked it up and for the Stillnox (Zolpidem) hallucinations are listed under serious side-effects. It says to tell the doctor but at the time it never occurred to me to do that - I actually quite enjoyed it. Plus, I think I was taking a few things in there so it was hard to tell what was affecting me.

Yes, that must be very annoying not being able to go to sleep. I can always get to sleep but I usually wake up very early in the morning and listen to the BBC for a while before I go back to sleep.

And yeah, I think there are a few other people on here that suffer from insomnia - you could probably start a thread about it if you like.

I thought I had to be a moderator/admin to open a thread in this forum? I just assumed since they've all been opened by admins it seems.


I didn't even know that was one of the side effects of Stilnox, but to be honest, which psychiatric medication doesn't list a lot of concerning stuff in the side effects section? When I read the pamphlets of my antianxiety/antidepressant/antipsychotic drugs I **** myself and then nothing ever happens. I mean I did experience the occasional dizziness the first time a took a benzodiazepine but apart from that I've been very lucky.

No, I think you're looking at just the top sections of the threads. There should be a button to start a thread yourself - unless there's a minimum amount of posts or something. I'm not sure.

And yeah, they all have those crazy things listed on the pamphlets. Those things can be scary - better not to look sometimes.
