Trazadone is very widely used, nothing to be afraid of. At worst you’ll feel foggy and groggy the next day, or the dose will be too low and nothing will be different. At best you get a solid night’s sleep, so you are better able to deal with the day.

Hi. I take it every night for insomnia. I find it very mild compared to other sleep meds and at a low dose, you may not notice side effects.

Trazodone is on the hypnotics class of drugs, not a risk for dependency. It's not a tranquilizer, not a Benzodiazepine or Z drug like Ambien. Be cautious with alcohol or other drugs while taking Trazadone until you know how you react.
