I started taking trazadone as a means of dealing with my paxil-induced insomnia (brilliant, huh? instead of taking away the drug that was causing the problem, they gave me another drug). It worked, but it worked too well. I was virtually numb all day. I felt zapped of all energy, creativity and personality. I was only taking half a pill each day, so I don't know if the too-high dosage theory really pans out.
