Trazodone is a prescription medication used mainly for its sedative and antidepressant properties. It is also sometimes used to help control symptoms like panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorders, alcohol withdrawal, schizophrenia, and controlling nightmares or other disturbed sleep.

Trazodone was originally discovered and developed in Italy in the 1960s by Angelini research laboratories as a second-generation antidepressant and is currently marketed under several brand names such as Desyrel, Molipaxin, Deprax, Trittico, Thombran, Trialodine, & Trazorel.
