Trazodone is a prescription medication used
to treat depression. Trazodone belongs to a group of drugs called serotonin modulators,
which affect the natural substance, serotonin, in the brain. This medication comes in tablet
form and may taken once a day for the extended-release form or multiple times a day for the immediate
release form. Trazodone may be taken after a meal or snack. Common side effects of trazodone
include drowsiness, dizziness, and dry mouth. Do not drive or operate machinery until you
know how trazodone will affect you. Take this medication only if it is prescribed for you
by a health care provider. For RxWiki, I’m Lindsay Morrison.
