Sep 1, 2009 (Started Aug 01, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    None (for Tourette Syndrome)
  • Side effects
    Severe
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: MISDIAGNOSED WITH TOURETTE SYNDROME BY AN RXHAPPY DOCTOR. Was prescribed Trazodone to help calm twitches & also to help alleviate fatigue that ended up being Narcolepsy (doctor thought it was just restless sleep). Gave me such awful headaches that I would have to fight vomiting anytime I moved. I can't really protest to how effective it was for sleep disorders since it was completely counterproductive in my particular situation.
