Trazodone is a prescription drug that primarily treats depression. The drug — which is sold under various brand names, including Oleptro, Desyrel and Trialodine — blocks the activity of serotonin receptors in the brain and prevents serotonin from being reabsorbed by neurons. This effectively increases the amount of serotonin in the brain, improving a person’s mood and regulating sadness. Like other types of serotonin inhibitors, trazodone can be used to treat anxiety and insomnia along with depression.
Since depression is a common mental illness, trazodone is often prescribed to patients suffering from this disease. Relying on trazodone can result in a physical and psychological dependence on the drug, which can become dangerous. Addiction to trazodone is not uncommon for people who have been prescribed the drug to treat depression. Additionally, people often take the drug without a doctor’s prescription as a form of self-medication.
The Recovery Village can help anyone who suffers from trazodone addiction or dependence. Since reliance on this drug is often connected to a mental illness, treatment for co-occurring disorders may be required. The Recovery Village has expert medical staff with the knowledge and resources to help patients formulate separate rehabilitation plans for substance use disorders and mental illnesses. The first step, though, is undergoing withdrawal and detoxification for trazodone.
