Can Trazodone be used for anxiety?

I was told this is a sedating SSRI (used at bedtime).  It is non-habit forming so I was wondering if it would work to increase the serotonin and help with anxiety.  Does anyone know anything about it?

We can't advise on medication, but you can contact your doctor regarding this.  You should always work closely with him where medications are concerned.  It would be irresponsible for any of us to second guess your doctor, he knows best.  Take care!

Trazodone does have an antianxiety effect in severely depressed people. One of it's unlabeled uses is in the adjuntive treatment of anxiety neuroses. Having stated those facts, your question needs to be addressed to your doctor and the decision made by both of you if this is the best medication for you.
