Caution is advised when using Remeron and Trazodone together.

Are you able to take the trazodone during the day?

Expert:  Doctor Matmon replied 3 months ago.

What is the dose of each medication? How were they prescribed (once daily, twice daily, etc)?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Trazadone 50 mg at bedtime
And Remeron 30mg at bedtime
Expert:  Doctor Matmon replied 3 months ago.

Trazadone is commonly prescribed to treat insomnia (difficulty sleeping) and depression. Remeron is used to treat depression as well.

When taking the two medications together have you experienced any of the following symptoms:

Agitation or restlessness.

Confusion.

Rapid heart rate and high blood pressure.

Dilated pupils.

Loss of muscle coordination or twitching muscles.

Muscle rigidity.

Heavy sweating.

Diarrhea.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I've not yet taken them together. I just picked up my prescriptions.
Expert:  Doctor Matmon replied 3 months ago.

I understand. These two medications are commonly prescribed together. For your knowledge, just be on the look out for any of the above symptoms. Otherwise, the two medications can be used together safely.

What about also taking Vicodin?
Expert:  Doctor Matmon replied 3 months ago.

Great question.

I would caution the use of ALL of these medications at the same time. Simply because they all have the potential to make you drowsy. Which, if you're having sleeping trouble, may sound like a benefit. But it could be dangerous if you become too sedated.

If you can space the pain medications about 1 hour or so away from the others to ensure they are not all fighting for the same attention. :-)

Any other questions?
