Been taking the trazodone for a week @ 50mg at night. It has really helped with my sleep. I've been getting anywhere from 3-5 hour burst of sleep now. I have only woken up in less that 2 hours once on this medication. I am so happy I'm on something that actually works. I overdid it yesterday since I was starting to feel better with the good sleep. I actually slept through the alarm going off for an hour this morning and only woke up when my wife called to ask why I wasn't at work!! I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by that damn truck again... Today's pain is some of the worst I've ever had... It's amazing when you think you've already had the worst pain ever then you have a day that is worse..
