Comment:
I took 75mgs (half tablet) per day at first and it was so sedating I went 1/4 tablets. After a couple weeks my body adjusted and I no longer felt tired all day. I'm now at 150mgs per day at bedtime. It is a wonderful sleep aid and a mild anti-depressant. It normalizes bowel movements after years of loose/irritable bowel syndrome. I love it. It seems to have a weak anti-depressant effect ...

Comment:
stopped Lexapro due to weight gain. Started Oleptro at 75 for 1 week than increased by 75mg to 300mg. Worked great with benefit of being able to fall asleep and not wake up throughout the night. Doctor was able to stop Lunesta and treat depression/sleep problems with Oleptro 300mg once daily at bedtime.

Comment:
I expected to be satisfied with the results of this drug because I'd taken and tolerated trazadone for many years in conjunction with other anti-depressants. In fact, I failed to connect my adverse reactions to the drug for some weeks because of my favorable pre-disposition. But by process of elimination I zeroed in on Oleptro as the cause of my severe muscle pain and hair loss. I ache worse ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Dizziness in the morning. Sexual side effects. Sore breasts. Lower back pain. Some tingling/numbness in extremities. Nasal stuffiness. Disrupted sleep. This was prescribed in conjunction with existing Wellbutrin treatment. I've been happy with Wellbutrin, but the doctor thought a little added antidepressant effect might be helpful and also help with sleep. The side effects just m ... Show Full Comment
