Hello,

Myself Dr Josh. and I’m happy to help with your question today

There is moderate interaction between trazodone & alcohol.Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of traZODone such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.

There is no serious or dangerous side effect or interaction.

In clinics,when patient ask,we allow them to take alcohol in light to moderate amounts when taking trazodone.

So bot***** *****ne is that you need to avoid driving or anything that needs concentration.Otherwise there is nothing serious or to worry as you have taken 100mg of trazodone and also combined it with alcohol.

Thank you.
Hope this helped

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

So in conclusion I can say that you need to avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery.

There is only moderate interaction between trazodone & alcohol & one may get dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.

No serious/dangerous side effect/interaction between these.

Thank you.
