trazodone



9:00 pm. Took 50mg trazodone two hours before bed. Made me groggy, sleepy, but not enough to actually sleep.
11:00 pm. Bedtime. Took 10mg ambien.
12:40 am - still awake - did I forget to take the ambien? Took 5 more mg ambien and was out in 10-15 minutes.
4:00 am or so - woke up. Took 5mg ambien.
7:00 am. Awake. No more sleep for me.

A bit more groggy through the day than usual. Slightly spacey, but the ambien always does that to me.

Strange - ambien always hits me in 15-30 minutes, but I was awake for an hour and a half and did not feel any of the effects of the ambien - was it a dud, did it fall out of my hand or my mouth? Did I just forget to take it? Tonight my wife is going to watch me take it to make sure I really do take it.
