Trazodone Withdrawal and Detox

Trazodone Withdrawal and DetoxIt is generally a poor idea to stop using prescription medications abruptly. Doing so can cause a flood of serious withdrawal symptoms, and that is certainly the case with trazodone.

Withdrawing from trazodone can cause a return of the symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia that the drug was prescribed to treat, which can be disturbing and frightening. Other withdrawal symptoms will be more physical in nature and could include diarrhea, itchiness, abdominal cramping, headaches, dizziness, low energy, disorientation, nausea and vomiting, and general feelings of weakness, unease and discomfort1.

None of these symptoms are life-threatening. But they can put your sobriety at risk. And that is why medically-supervised detox services are the safest bet for sustainable recovery from trazodone addiction.

During detox, withdrawal will be carefully managed to minimize the intensity of your symptoms. This is done by reducing dosages of trazodone gradually as an alternative to giving up the drug cold turkey. Detox takes place in a fully-staffed medical facility. Additionally, trained personnel will be available 24 hours a day to tend to all your mental and physical health needs.

After the transition to sobriety is complete, which should take between seven and 10 days as trazodone dosages are progressively reduced, you will be ready to move on to treatment, where all aspects of your addiction and addictive behavior will be discussed and analyzed, to protect you from future encounters with drug dependency.
