I just saw my family doctor today and she agreed with me that I can stop taking trazodone, because I was only taking it for sleep, but find I don't need it anymore. I also find that trazodone causes weight gain. I a hoping when I stop taking trazodone that I can lose some weight. My doctor said I didn't need to wean off trazodone just to stop taking it.

it may help with the weight loss, but not on its own

I am hoping that once I stop taking Trazodone I will lose some of my weight. What do you mean when you said it may help with the weight, but not on it's own.

I take Trazadone and I've never heard of weight gain with this drug, but anything is possible. I would suggest to wean yourself off it instead of going cold turkey.

@Craigmih When I told my doctor that I wanted to stop taking Trazodone she said for me to just stop taking it, but am taking one every other night just 50 mgs and there isn’t any 25 mgs so she suggested to cut the pill in half.
