Trazodone history and info
Angelini Research Laboratories in Italy originally developed Trazodone in the 1960s. Trazodone is a Serotonin Antagonist and Reuptake Inhibitor (SARI) that has both anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties but also exhibited sleep inducing effects.
University of Washington researchers found an increased risk of crashes for people taking Trazodone. This risk also included all sleeping medications.
While Trazodone is not an SSRI, it does share many properties of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, including the discontinuation syndrome if the medication is stopped too rapidly. Therefore it is always recommended to taper Trazodone slowly, particularly after long-term use.
The FDA approved Trazodone in 1981 and it was approved worldwide under the names of Desyrel, Depyrel, Mesyrel, Mollpasin, Oleptro, Trazodil, Trazorel, Trialodine and Trittico. Trazodone is a Serotonin Antagonist and Reuptake Inhibitor (SARI) that has both anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties but also exhibited sleep inducing effects.
University of Washington researchers found an increased risk of crashes for people taking Trazodone. This risk also included all sleeping medications. Records of 400,000 Washington state drivers who had a drug insurance benefit were followed until death or the end of the study. According to Michael Grandner, an instructor in psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, “Risks associated with sleeping pills have been known for some time, though this study shows some compelling real-world consequences.” The risk of crashing related to sedative medications was similar to the crash risk while driving drunk. Trazodone was found to be the most commonly prescribed sleep medication in the study.
Biopharma recently announced they are combining Trazodone with Bupropion to create Lorexys, a women's libido drug.
Trazodone may be found in maternal milk in significant concentrations, but sufficient data in human studies that address safety during pregnancy or breastfeeding is lacking.
Elevated Prolactin levels have been reported in patients taking Trazodone. Prolactin is a hormone that is best known for its role in producing milk after pregnancy. But Prolactin is also a protein that influences over 300
separate actions in the body. Prolactin is secreted by the pituitary gland in response to eating, during sex, ovulation and also plays an important role in metabolism, regulation of the immune system and pancreatic development.
Abruptly stopping or rapidly withdrawing Trazodone can cause blurred vision or vision disturbances, gastrointestinal symptoms, lethargy, insomnia, anxiety, agitation, irritability, and migraine headaches.
