Trazodone is an antidepressant medication used to treat depression and other mood disorders. While stopping trazodone use abruptly is not generally recommended, gradual tapering of the medication is often recommended to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

If you want to stop taking trazodone, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider to develop a safe and effective tapering plan. The duration of the tapering period can vary depending on how long you have been taking the medication and the dose you are taking. Some people may experience withdrawal symptoms during the tapering process, which can include insomnia, irritability, anxiety, and other symptoms. However, with proper medical supervision and support, it is possible to safely and effectively discontinue trazodone use.
