Unlike other anti-depressants, Trazodone is less commonly deliberately abused.

Users may begin to abuse the medication because their prescribed dosage is no longer working. This is because they have developed a tolerance to the drug.

They will continue to up their dose while not only overusing it but developing an addiction at the same time.

What is Trazodone addiction and abuse?

Trazodone abuse means taking too much of the drug just to feel its effects.
