I was given a prescription for trazodone a few years ago before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Don't know if sleep apnea was present at the time, but the trazodone was prescribed because I was on a high dose of prozac (40 mg a day) and this was given to me to help me sleep. I think prozac interferes with sleep, possibly REM (but not sure about that). Anyway, the trazodone, made me feel really zoned out and drugged. It scared me and I quit taking it. What I do now is take 1 .25 mg xanax (the white ones) a day which is much less severe in its effects than trazodone.. I found trazodone to be very sedating. Just my 2 cents.
