Trazodone Dosage Differences
Trazodone is a generic, prescription medication that’s approved by the FDA to treat depression and it also has extra-label indications as well. For example, trazodone can be used to treat anxiety conditions, OCD, certain chronic pain conditions, and most commonly insomnia.
Trazodone is classified as an antidepressant, and a serotonin modulator more specifically. This means that it regulates and balances the amount of serotonin available in the brain of the user, so it can improve mood, appetite, the user’s outlook on life and also help with healthy sleep patterns.
Along with affecting the neurotransmitter serotonin, trazodone is also believed to affect other chemical messengers in the brain including dopamine and norepinephrine.
While trazodone acts on the brain in ways that are similar to other antidepressants, it is chemically and structurally distinctive, which is why it’s sometimes called an atypical antidepressant.
