Hello Mam

Xanax is an anxiolytic drug belonging to Benzodiazepine group while Trazadone is a type of antidepressant. It is recommended that Benzodiazepines are not to be taken for long duration because of the risk of dependence which may occur if they are used for long term.

Trazadone is not considered to be a habit forming drug and may be this is why your doctor wants you to switch over to trazadone.

I hope this helps.
