    As been diagnosed with G.A.D. and chronic sleeping disorder in 2005, I have tried many sleeping medications, most of them my body becomes immune to after a month or two.

    My issue was insomnia and some minor depression. I've only been on the trazadone for two nights now (50 mg). It works very quickly. I have had two good night's rest. However, I am getting the stuffy nose. This is annoying, but it really only lasts for about 1 hr. I hope this goes away, as I like being able to sleep.

    I have been taking this drug for at least 15 years for severe insomnia after someone broke into my home while I slept. It has been a fantastic drug to put me to sleep and keeps me asleep all night. Does not cause hangover effect at all for me in the morning.

    I've been taking Desyrel several years. It usually helps me sleep, but here lates I've had more difficulty sleeping. It appears to have no bad effects.
