However, discontinuing use of Trazodone hydrochloride, also known as brand name Desyrel®, can induce Trazodone withdrawal side effects. Common symptoms that may occur from discontinuing anti-depressants, such as this medication, include: Insomnia, dizziness, irritability, headaches, agitation, anxiety, and confusion. For most individuals, withdrawal symptoms may be serious and require Trazodone withdrawal treatment. Stopping Trazodone suddenly may significantly increase the chances of experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, and any individual who wishes to withdraw from an antidepressant should speak to a professional. 

Prescribed as a treatment for many symptoms, including depressive symptoms and insomnia, when people have been taking Trazodone for sleep; discontinuing use of the drug may cause insomnia to return in a worsened state (rebound insomnia). These are the reasons why it is so crucial to talk to a professional about Trazodone withdrawal treatment. It may not be as easy as just suddenly quitting Trazodone, especially when individuals have been taking this drug for long periods of time and at high dosages. By simplifying Trazodone withdrawal – becoming medication-free is an easy and manageable process.

A gradual tapering process is advised for this drug in order to avoid withdrawal side effects. If withdrawal symptoms do appear during tapering, the dose may temporarily be increased to avoid discomfort. A slow Trazodone tapering schedule can take several days or weeks to finish. Tapering allows for individuals to get through withdrawal in a comfortable way. Along with tapering, we provide a set of comprehensive correction methods to balance the neurochemistry while the brain and body are adjusting to absence of the medication.

In addition, during antidepressant withdrawal it may be tremendously beneficial to engage in talk therapy or other counseling therapies that can help manage the mental health condition which this anti-depressant was originally meant to treat. You don’t have to let Trazodone consume your life. We can help you achieve your desire to be medication-free.

People are usually given an anti-depressant prescription before there has been any substantial effort to investigate what may be causing the depression. Serotonin imbalances are a frequent blame for depression, but what about food allergies, accumulated neurotoxins, or low thyroid? These things can be substantial contributing factors. For most, they begin treatment with these medications during a traumatic time emotionally or when troubling symptoms like insomnia are occurring. However, then years later, they are still taking the medication and struggle with withdrawal if they attempt to stop. Trazodone withdrawal symptoms can occur because even when a person is not deficient or imbalanced in Serotonin, the medication can create imbalances in the brain such as Serotonin deficiencies. So, when the person is in withdrawal, it is likely they will experience over stimulation, sleeplessness, anxiety or even symptoms similar to OCD and Tourette’s. This can be caused by the medication-induced Serotonin deficiency. Medications can cause imbalances in neurotransmitters; we know how to re-create and maintain stability.

We focus on discovering the medical reasons contributing to an individual’s depression, inability to sleep, or anxiety. Our program utilizes lab tests to see what may be these contributing causes and employs the use of all natural substances to support the neurochemistry, IV amino acid therapies and other nutritional therapy, techniques for medication withdrawal, exercise, personal training, massage therapy, yoga, support from peers and additional therapies targeted to offer support and comfort throughout the withdraw process. We invite your call so you can talk to us and receive a better idea of the Trazodone withdrawal help that is available.
