What is trazodone?
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.
very simply no, I have done tons of research about trazodone. Wikipedia is a great place to look up trazodone. Basically all trazodone is, is an antidepresant it is distinct from other tricyclic antidepressants, it is mainly used as an adjuct with other ssri antidepressant. It is also widely used for its prominent side effect which is sedation. but to answer your question again no trazodone in NOT a maoi.
Trazodone doesn't get you high. In my experience, i have taken 50 mg's of trazodone without eating and i didn't notice anything great. I took another 50 mg's a different day after eating and it put me right to sleep. Trazodone is an ssri that is also used off label as a sleep aid. Your out of luck my friend.
