Trazodone Overdose – Symptoms, Dosage and Treatment


About Trazodone Overdose

Trazodone hydrochloride is a prescription medication used in the management of major depression. has a potential for overdose because the drug is not naturally occurring in the body [1, 2].


What is Trazodone?

The drug Trazodone is primarily use as an antidepressant because of its hypnotic and anxiolytic effect. It is an example of a Serotonin Antagonist and Reuptake Inhibitor (SARI) and produces its intended effect by preventing the action and reuptake of the neurotransmitter serotonin. It is a phenylpiperazine compound and is the antidepressant of choice because it does not produce the dangerous side effects associated with the use of tricyclic antidepressants. The risk for overdose in Trazodone is lower compared to other antidepressants available in the market [1, 2, 3].

Trazodone Overdose


Trazodone is available in the market under the brand names: Desyrel, Desirel, Beneficat, Oleptro, Deprax, Molipaxin, Thombran, Trazorel and others. Aside from depression, it is also used for the treatment of following conditions [1, 2, 3]:

  • Insomnia
  • Unipolar depression
  • Bipolar depression
  • Panic disorder
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bulimia nervosa
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Compels Regional Pain Syndrome
  • Alcohol Withdrawal
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychosis

Amount of Trazodone Overdose

The recommended dosage of Trazodone both for adult and geriatric clients is 150 mg once day. The dosage may be increased to 50 mg every four days or three days. The maximum daily dose may be up to 400 mg for outpatients, while hospitalized patients may take up to 600 mg daily.


Pediatric dose is 25 to 50 mg in a day that can be increased to up to 150 mg daily. Any excessive intake beyond the maximum dosage may lead to an overdose. The risk for Trazodone overdoses increases if the medication is taken with alcohol, antihistamines and Central Nervous System depressants [1, 2, 3].

Causes

Causes of Trazodone overdose include accidental ingestion of the pills especially by children and geriatric clients. Those who adjust their dose without the prescription of a physician may also cause Trazodone overdose. It is essential to adhere with the Trazodone dosage prescribed and keep pills away from children. Geriatric clients may also need supervision with the intake of the drug [1, 2, 3].

Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms of Trazodone overdose are rooted at the excessive effects of Trazodone in the body. It may include neurologic, cardiovascular and respiratory system [1, 2, 3].

Central Nervous System effects

Trazodone causes a depression of the central nervous system. The person may feel drowsy and at high levels may fall into coma. They may develop seizures or have difficulty sleeping. Other CNS symptoms include headaches, dizziness and lack of coordination [1, 2, 3].

Cardiovascular System effects

Cardiac arrhythmias are also possible Trazodone overdose symptoms because of the affectation of the adrenergic rectors in the heart leading to cardiac irregularities. The most common arrhythmias include premature ventricular contractions. Their blood pressure will decrease and may lead to fainting [1, 2, 3].

Respiratory System effects

CNS depression may also lead to respiratory depression. Clients who may have Trazodone overdose usually experience shortness of breath and decreased respiratory rate. Severe depression of the central nervous system may cause the person’s cessation of breathing [1, 2, 3].

Other effects

Priapism is the prolonged erection of the penis even in the discontinuation of sexual stimulation. Priapism is a result of the antagonistic effect of the drug in the alpha-adrenergic receptors leading to vasodilatation. The prolonged vasodilatation in the penis results in increased blood flow to the area leading to persistent erection. Priapism may be painful and considered a medical emergency because of possible ischemia to the tissues. Similar occurrence may also occur in the clitoris of female patients [1, 2, 3].

Trazodone may also have the effects of decreasing the white blood cell count which may increase the risk for infection [1, 2, 3].


Diagnosis

Since Trazodone reduces the white blood cell count, a complete blood count may be necessary to detect any blood dyscrasia. Patients who develop a sore throat may also require blood testing because it may be a sign of infection. Blood testing is also used to detect the actual level of Trazodone in the blood [1, 2, 3].

Treatment and Management

Treatment of Trazodone overdose focuses on removing the excess level of Trazodone in the body as well as supportive managements for the symptoms.

Emergency Care

When a patient has overdosed on Trazodone, they should be brought to the hospital immediately. When they arrive in the emergency department, the initial priority is the maintenance of the airway, breathing and circulation of the patient. There may be a need to perform an emergency endotracheal intubation if the patient can’t maintain respiration. An intravenous access needs to be established for the administration of fluids to prevent hypotension [2, 3, 4].

Decontamination

A single dose of activated charcoal may be given to the patient if the ingestion occurred less than an hour prior.  The airway must be protected during the administration of activated charcoal to prevent aspiration. Excretion of the drug through the urine can be improved with the use of diuretics [2, 3, 4].

Symptom Management

There is no known antidote for the overdose of Trazodone but the symptoms that have developed during the overdose will be managed through the use of different medications. Seizures are managed by using benzodiazepines. Nitroprusside and esmolol will be able to manage the episodes of tachycardia and instability of the cardiovascular system [2, 3, 4].

Referral

Once the patient of Trazodone overdose has become asymptomatic, they can be discharged. Those who have intentionally ingested a toxic amount of medications must be referred to a psychiatrist for an evaluation [2, 3, 4].

Because of the possible Trazodone overdose, patients should ensure that they take only what is prescribed, despite the absence of improvement of the condition. It is still important to take essential measures to keep the drug out of the reach of children.

    I want to die! My husband has cheated on me & has been heartless towards me our whole 23 year struggling marriage! He cuts me down when I’m emotional. Calling me ‘psycho’, ‘crazy’ , ‘nuts’ … Or throwing out my family last name, my sister’s or parents name, & saying I’m crazy like them!! Who wouldn’t be ½ crazy being emotionally ignored or taunted for so many years!!

    I took lots of extra Trazadone tonite, in hopes of leaving him with me dead & a mess to deal with!!

    Distraught & hopeless wife,

        Hey, I just wanted to know how you’re doing now. We are about the same age and well, I struggle with these kind of thoughts too. It would be nice to talk to you sometime. we can give each other a little HOPE. I have HOPE in this life because I know I am loved and treasured by The Lord, and that He has a good plan and purpose for me…even when I can’t see it at all and most of what I feel is emotional pain, I trust in His unfailing LOVE for me. He loves you too and has plans to prosper you. Jeremiah 29:11. I know it sucks sometimes, but God is right by your side helping you through.
        anyways, we can just talk and listen to each other if you want. message on email or something. that be chill.

          Hi my friend, should I say, hi my sister in Christ?
          Your words are a blessing, continue to do the good work. God bless you indeed. This is a special ministry and you should continue to comfort other with encouraging words as you did to this person.
          Yes, God love us! He wants the best for our lives, even when things looks so hard and overwhelming. We have to cry out to Jesus always, He is the only hope for our lives.
          He promises that He will never leave us, nor will forsake us. So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid…” Hebrews 13:5b-6

            I’m sorry, but Jesus isn’t the answer for a chemical imbalance like depression. I grew up seventh day Adventist and any problem you have everyone’s first answer is Jesus Jesus Jesus. Praying never helped me. He doesn’t answer. Very one sided relationship. If God loved me why would he create me like this? And now I can’t tell any Christian (my whole family and friends) about what I’m going through because there is so much freakin judgement.

    Please do not kill yourself over the actions of others! You have to realize that you were put here for a reason! God put you here for a purpose. Please believe that! You are loved by your Creator and the Creator of the universe!!!! Joy comes in the morning.. you will feel better. Everything will work out okay. It will take time but life can be great. Please hang in there!

      Perhaps our reason for being here is to set an example for others of the depths their actions can affect others. Our very act of our killing ourselves may be our sole purpose for life.

        I seen some online pics once of the who had used the gas bag, and it shifted me from the suicidal mind set and feelings to that of empathy for others, I guess I block that out when I’m watching the news, because I never seem to feel all that moved by the news, but I was moved to tears by those pics, not saying that I see the purpose in dying except to die when we don’t have a choice, but I guess that I feel a specific kind of empathy for suicide victims, because I have tried it, and woke up three days later, now i’m reluctant to try it again because I went to a mental hospital for the financially challenged , and trust me when I say that the hospital sucked worse than my problems, kinda like out of the pan and into the fire

    I too am planning to commit suicide. My wonderful boyfriend has cancer and is in the hospital,he is much older than I,and because of circumstances I can’t be with him at all. And he and I are soulmates,the best of friends. It hurts so much, I’ve never felt so alone and in despair in all my life. I am a Christian,but I’m not as close to God as i should be. I know the Lord is good, it’s me that is filled with doubt and unbelief. I just can’t tolerate this empty feeling,and no one can help me by putting me in a mental hospital either,those places are hell. Besides,they couldn’t do anything for my grief. But,I am thankful for the wonderful pretty boy i got to be with,he is the best,but I’m not willing to wait around and see him suffer I can’t take it. I’ve watched my grandpa die recently and that is enough of that sort of thing. I have some of these type of pills,in a day or two, im taking them ALL. And I hope NO ONE tries to stop me! I’m two weeks away from being 22, I know I’m young,but knowing all the hurt and pain,and to know that hurtful things just keep happening,is too much. Enough is enough. I’ve had my fill of this sin infested world,it sucks. So, good-bye soon everybody.

      I felt the same way when my mom was dying, ecspecially because we were not getting the closure that I was hoping to get and that was in 1999, the bottle of sleeping pills I took made me sleep 3 day, and because my wife, who was girlfriend at the time took my letter as a cry for help, and took me to the emergency room and the Doctor sent me to the (state) hospital, if I’d known I would sleep for three days, and not left the note, I could have gone home from the emergency room rested up and not feeling anxious, long story short I guess is You can’t predict what might happen with pills

    All these Christian folks think “Hey, let Jesus save you.” Well, he already did. We’re here for a purpose and did you ever think us committing suicide might just be that reason. Our action may cause the reason someone else does something else and finally we might just get someone out there to realize something that they’re doing is totally ruining other people’s lives. Of course, those people are probably too stupid or obnoxious to realize we’re directing our actions at them.

    Please, dont end your life. I already tried overdosing and it sucks. You have no control over your body and you’re so out of it it’s like you’re dead. I wanted to die so bad, I couldn’t see the world for what it truly was. My professor guided me to get some help. Im 20, never dranked or broke the law. I go to church, meet the expectations of my family and peers. But in the end, you have to love yourself and see the good in life. People care. I scared the crap out of my sister and my parents were so frustrated. I hated myself. My heart held so much pain and misery. I felt alone and unrelated. I couldnt talk to anybody. “Go get help” they say. But then you’re losing money on therapeutic bullshit. But then you find that one person who doesnt give a shit where they got their degree. That one person whose filled with hope and passion. And then….life doesnt seem so bad anymore. Fall asleep and bless the day. Wake up, and feel the wind. Wake up and feel alive. You’re not alone. Life will get better, you just cant force happiness.

      It may seem bad! But, it’s not worth the putting the people who love you through this. This is why they say, suiside is so selfish.
      You may feel like shit today, but things have a way to work itself out. However, not true with the victims of suiside! Their pain is 100x more than whatever you are going through right now. When people commit suiside they are NOT victims. They are the perps!

    Hey everybody,
    Let’s help each other. Having a soul mate, or loneliness should not be a reason to kill ourselves. We need to love ourselves first, then go help others…that’s what real love is, not the “relarionship” type attachment to someone else such that we can’t feel OK about ourselves without this significant other. We all can help each other, after all, Love is something we give to other living beings, without any thought of getting something out of it for ourselves. We can grow out of feeling needy, helpless, dependent. We are actually at our best when we are able to get rid of this attachment we all call “love”, when actually it isn’t love at all, it’s lust. Love, accept, appreciate your self, then go help others in ways they need you to. Practice compassionate giving every moment.

    Hey I can tell you all if you want to kill yourself trazadone is not the way to do it. I tried taking 2500 milligrams and drinking and gassing myself in the garage. All that happened to me was I shit myself, puked, got super hot, couldn’t breath, ended up barely getting the car turned off because my survival instincts kicked in when I couldn’t breath. I managed to crawl out of the car and lay semi unconscious on the floor for hours until my husband found me. I thought about getting a gun and blowing my brains out but was too incapacitated to move let alone stand. I thought I would just go to sleep and die peacefully. This was my third attempt in 5 years. ( not by same process) My point is, If it’s not your time to go I don’t think we get to leave early. I’m 55 year old woman who’s son committed suicide 2 and a half years ago. He planned his out very carefully and hung himself. For me, I don’t really want to kill myself I just really don’t want to live anymore. I’ve gotten sucked down by the lower vibrations of this earth. But I’m determined not to let it beat me. There are things we can do to get out of the lower vibration. The first thing I started doing was chanting Namu My?h? Renge Ky?. It’s a buddhist chant that reveals the Mystic Law and path to enlightenment. It raised my depression the very first time I chanted it. I suggest giving it a try. What have you got to lose except your life???

      Thank you and God bless you. My husband died almost 4 years ago and my daughter 2 years to the same day by suicide. Two years now, almost. My son has turned away from me. I have been following Thich Naht Than and am a Christian. My best friend, who does not understand grief, even though I am so much better now says he needs to’kick me in the butt and tell me to get off my ass and live!’ I think I’m pretty good now, but what he has said, along with my son disengaging from me hurts terribly. I am 76. I think my friend, younger, believes that I need to be in the workforce. I will look up the chants. I would love to hear from you. I had 2 cocktails tonight. Don’t think they help, but I do partake.I hope you are well, and would love to hear from you.

        I can relate. My daughter decided I’m not good enough for her (after 45 years of being good enough). I’m 70 and came here on a link while looking for suicide by Trazadone info. I’ve made other attempts in past with other pills, only to end up in a hospital or rehab.

        I haven’t had my feelings hurt from strangers nor any boyfriend, husband, etc. I don’t want to try and hurt someone emotionally by my death. Just tired, broke and tired of being broke. Anyway, if you’re still here let me know with a response. Take care.

          My daughter too. My only daughter decided I was dead already. But my heart doesn’t stop aching. It’s been three years since I’ve seen my only granddaughters. Every day is a struggle. No one understands the depth of the pain and hurt. It doesn’t effect anyone but me. My youngest Grandgirl doesn’t even know I exist. I think of death constantly. Only to stop the ache in my heart. I have no friends or companions. I too, feel very alone. I no longer even like myself. I live like I am dead. I feel like I am too.
          Some daughters bring only heartache.

    A failed suicide attempt is horrible. It leaves everyone mad at you and now your problems are even more complicated because you’ve lost your credibility. It’s not worth it! It’s humiliating, degrading, embarrassing, hurtful, selfish. And it can leave permanent damage to body and brain. I know because I have tried and failed too many times to count. And I’m talking serious attempts!!! It’s not my time to go obviously. I know this yet I get desperate and act out impulsively at times. My family is worried I’m going to end up in a vegetative state and then they will have to make the decision and thats not fair to them.

      Sometimes I think I wanna just go live with my dad and not see her fugly face anymore. I’m sick and tired of everyone treating me like shit. I get no respect and not treated like a human being in my house.I attempted suicide a few years back & was then diagnosed with bipolar. I just feel my life sucks. I am on so many psych meds as well as pain meds. I don’t even have enough room here to list my physical problems. I’m 54 feeling like 90. I drove from my home in nj to a rest stop in ny with all my pills. I figured there’s so many people at a rest stop & it’s normal for people to stop & take naps so hopefully I won’t be bothered. I am just so ready to go see my Heavenly Father. So far I’ve taken 30 ambien, 90 percocets, 30 100mg trazedones & now I’m working on finishing up chlorzoxazone 500 mg. plus I have seroquel

    Hey guys. I’m lying here in bed at 5 AM (can’t sleep) researching the drug trazodone and I just read most of the comments here. I was a fool to think that I was the only one who attempted suicide with trazodone overdose. I lost my job last week and ingested all 28 pills of trazodone, 50 mg, when I got back home. I thought I could lay down and pass away in my sleep. But no. What I got was a scary experience of it. Thank the Lord I survived. I was REALLY high. Had an erection, pre-ejaculated a couple times. Everything I saw was colored yellow. Hallucinated. Had the shakes, a chill. Very high heartbeat. Couldn’t feel my toes and fingers. I survived by vomiting most of the trazodone back out. I was able to get myself out of bed and make it to the bathroom. I felt like a zombie (I know, cliché, right?). While coming down from the drug all I wanted to do was sleep the next two days. My roommate has no idea of this event. I told him that my stomach was upset and that I feel very sleepy, might be getting sick, ya know. What I learned from this, and it may be true, is that you cannot OD from trazodone and die because your body involuntarily reacts to the drug causing you to vomit the drug back out. Take it from me, do not attempt to OD on trazodone because it is not fun at all.

      I slept for three days peacefully from a sleeping pill once and then got sent to mental hospital it could have been worse, but I honestly, even after searching online don’t know if any pill is reliable or not, even lethal injections go wrong according to my research, and I’m pretty sure that there is a lot of thought that goes into making sure that they are done flawlessly

      Satan is neither in hell, nor in charge of hell, he is however walking about the earth looking to see who he can devour, he has been here ever since he was cast out of the garden of eden, and before even, and he seeks to cause as much trouble as he can until Jesus casts him into the bottomless pit, he’s not the god of anything other than lies, and this world for the time being

    CS, Don’t make it easy for your cheating husband by killing yourself, he would probably be relieved. He will get everything and the new girlfriend. They won’t care about your death, people move on, you’ll be a faint memory. No one is going to miss you or feel sad in the long run. Yes it’s tough love because truly very few people care about anyone else but themselves. Get a divorce, move on and know there is always someone else out there to be with and if you’re very lucky he may love you more then himself. Relationships work best when the man loves the woman more then the woman loves the man…that’s the truth!!!

    Jacklyn, I’ll talk with you. When you have no one in your life it sucks big time and you feel there’s no reason to live. Think about why friends and family are not around, can you change that by talking to them? Could it be something you did or they did that was a conflict? Resolving past issues with family and friends is crucial and will make everyone feel better. Unresolved issues only weigh on those involved and create negative thoughts and energy. Negative people attract negativity, Positive people attract positivity, it’s natures way. Think about resolving or understanding what went wrong in past relationships in order to make and keep new ones. We must have people in our lives and giving and receiving is a balance necessary to keeping those relationships going. It’s not always easy but without people in our lives we will find ourselves alone and lost. It takes work but worth it!

    Well after reading all this shit I’m thinking trazodone may not be the way to go. Hell I’m already sick, I don’t need a failed overdose to make me sicker. How about valium or codine? I also have a nice stockpile of sinemet. I know! A combination of them might do the job. Just go to bed and never wake up. That’s what I want. Well ive got more researching to do. Best of luck in whatever you decide. Suicide…overdose…God…whatever.

I can’t take it anymore and my aunt doesn’t help she encourages my mom to basically hate me because she’s happy when we fight and that I’m moving out. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do anymore.

    I have PTSD but not from war. I am a 47 year old woman who couldn’t take to hear get over it anymore. So yesterday I took about 12 150mgs of trazodone . I left a note the as my breathing was getting super slow I prayed and tried to call 911 but couldn’t see the numbers so thankful for Siri I said call 911. I’m still in the hospital but it was so scary not having my motor skills or speech. I was almost dead. Now I see the dr here so they can find out how to handle triggers and finely talk with other women only. There are things I talk to in front of a man about my trauma about which is my child hood

    I have had depression for 37 years and have tried very hard to try and stay positive and appreciate life but right now I say Fuck It. I just want to die. I don’t think that is to much to ask for. Only one person on earth cares about me and I know he will be hurt but no more hurt than I am putting him through now. Both my brothers committed suicide and I know with the right plan I can succeed. Now reading this Trazadone might not be my option but I saw a real nice train trecel close by and have been giving that some thought. Walking in front of a truck sounds good. I will kill myself and the world will be better off. See you soon bro’s.

    I was suicidal for twelve years, thoughts of being better off dead floated around in my head nearly everyday. I never attempted suicide but instead lived a wreckless life abusing illegal drugs and alcohol.

    At thirty I had enough, quit the drugs, cut back on the drinking and started living a better life. Now I’m thirty seven and the wreckless life I once lived is catching up to me. I am severely depressed, my memory and thinking ability are non existent, I’m loosing my hearing and I can’t sleep without trazadone. I feel like I’m in my eighties with dementia. I can’t imagine living another fifty years this way.

    Thoughts of suicide are back in my head. When I was in my teens and twenties I thought things where bad. Now I’ve made everything so much worse. I can barely hold a job and pay the rent. I wish I could go to sleep and never wake up.

    Anyone who is thinking of suicide, please don’t do anything reckless. Be gentle with yourself, eat healthy, get a goodnight’s rest, if you can get out and go for a walk in the sunshine, and fill your life with positive things. Dying is no joke and spending years not living or a failed suicide can make things worse.

    I don’t know what the future holds. I’m in a living hell but I manage to find enough strength to keep going and take life one day at a time. Suicide or living, I’m not sure which is worse.

    I’m so tired of being tired that I can’t take it. I’m with a wonderful wonderful WONDERFUL man! I’ve go 2 healthy girls that he is just, if not more wonderful to them. I don’t know what else to do. I’ve begged God to give me a sickness to take me out. I even said if He wouldn’t help I ll ask Satan himself! I need more help than what I EVER tell or let people know of. I want to rest and stayed rested for good. I know in the long run people will talk about what I did and then like life as always, has a way of correcting things like this, eventually people will move on and I’ll be a thing of the past. But O well. I don’t need words to help me. I just need HELP!!

        Hi Lisa..A fellow grandmother who contemplated suicide many times. I feel like I am dead but someone forgot to tell me to STOP BREATHING. Things are not that dark right now. But they can turn in an instant. I feel unloved, unappreciated and unworthy. I felt like the only one however I see I am not. If you ever need a friend. I am here. I depend on Jesus to help me through each and every day. My email is Wriston2@gmail.com. Will be praying for you and all these precious souls.

I know it hurts right now. vut there’s so much opportunity for good things to come into your life yet. If i had ended my life as I had wanted to when my mother went to prison when i was 13.. I would never have had my children, or grandchildren. Please don’t sell yourself and the world short.

    I have a multitude of health issues, and have become completely dependant on the man I love more than life itself, Problem is he does not want me, the care of me, or the thought of me. I have no where else to go. no job, no income, no family to turn to. no friends because I isolated to be with this man, all the while he’s been out putting me down to everyone who will listen, I have been shunned from the A.A group in our area for just that reason. I have become the social pariah (i apologize for my spelling) I have had all I can take. So i am choosing this method with the addition of a plastic bag with elastic string around the neck. I van hold it open easily enough to make breathing comfortable, and when i pass out, the elastic will retract and cut off the oxygen entering the bag. I know it seems a cowards way out. But I don’t wish to be in some institution where orderlies are the only human contact I have. At least this way I can go out at home.

    I have several health issues that have left me unabe to work. which has left me totally dependant on the man I love more than life. Both financially and emotionally. Problem is he has recently decided that he’d rather not be with me. after six years… and I have no where else to go. No job, no money, a car in the backyard he’s been “trying” to fix for the last two months, so no way to get nowhere, no family to turn to, and no friends because I isolated to be with him. All the while, behind my back he has been putting me down to anyone who would listen. As a result of that, i’ve even been shunned by the local A.A. group. So I have no hope left. No help to see me through. and enough experience that tells me i DO NOT WANT to end up in a facility where my only human contact is orderlies. So I am choosing to take my life. stop the emotional pain I have carried all my life. And do so while still in the comfort of his home.

    I took 28 100mg last night around 6pm, it is not almost 1pm the next day and not only am I still alive, I am incredibly ill. I awoke last night while they had just begun kicking in and could feel my soul leaving my body. I did not call out, did not phone 911, I was happy that my body was finally going to allow me the death I so desire. And yet, I am alive. All of the suffering is for nothing. Beginning to believe I cannot die by my own hand. Suicide by Cop is becoming an option for me but then again putting the stress of killing on another’s hand… maybe not. Trazodone is not the way to do it, that’s for sure. I wish to go to the hospital now to get this stuff out of my system, I feel so sick it is unreal. Being admitted would make me lose my job though so I guess I will just wait out the sickness. It comes and goes with vengeance.

    You know guys, it sucks. I know. Sometimes life is just so heavy that you can’t imagine living for another moment. I’ve been hospitalized for Self-Harm, Depression, Suicidal Thoughts, and an Eating Disorder. Sometimes I wish I could have just never existed. I guess I came on here with some sort of morbid curiosity about how I could commit suicide if I ever needed to. Reading all these comments makes me so sad. I really wish all of you could see how beautiful you all are. I won’t tell you that ‘The Lord created you you should be grateful’ shit. I will tell you that I am young, and I don’t have a lot of life experience. Please don’t commit suicide.
    I love you all, no matter who you are, how you feel, or your life situation.

    My first attempt to suicide was couple of years ago in 2011 and until this day I am still trying to kill myself. I have been thru alot in these past couple of years. I have been physically, mentally, and emotionally drained. I’ve been beat up, burnt by guys that they so call love me. I had gotten help in the past but never seem to work. I still have thoughts that I want to kill myself. I stand on my own in this so called world that I don’t or can’t find happiness. I don’t feel love, I don’t feel like others care about me, I feel like I don’t belong here at all, I feel like I am in everyones way. I had gotten my tradozone out and I took the full bottle of pills and now I am sitting here wondering should I take the other bottle I have. From an unhappy, lost young woman.

    Please don’t do it. It is not worth it. It will only magnify your problems and cause immense pain. I’m 21 years old. I took 37 tabs of 50 MG Trazadone and laid out in the frigid forest. It was the worst experience of my life. Heavy breathing, severe dizziness, heart racing, muscle convulsions, and vomiting. I panicked and somehow found the strength to get up and crawl to the street. I was rushed to the hospital where the pain and suffering continued. Then I was placed in a psychiatric ward for 7 days where I was assaulted by two other patients. I’m now a a little over a month into my recovery and I still have major pain in my abdomen, memory loss, flunked out of college, and I lost my job.

    I know life may seem difficult on you right now, but I beg you not to do it. It will ruin your reputation. It will destroy your relationships. It will cause a financial burden. The consequences of such a decision will haunt you for years and years. DON’T DO IT. YOU’RE A BEAUTIFUL, LOVING HUMAN BEING.

      Piss off, people want to die. If you want to end your life fucking do it, sure people will be sad and loved ones will miss you but think about this, if all that sadness and missing going to fix your pain?

      I think not. Take the 30 + trazodone and lay on the train tracks or prepare the noose on that tree. When you feel the pills kicking in just step up and put the noose around your neck, relax, & then the magic will happen. Death oh sweet death will come.

      No I don’t want to be saved nor do I want someone to talk me out of it. Death is the only answer for many but yet people try to save that person and then what? All you do it prolong misery and suffering.

      Life is not as cool as everyone thinks & it is not for everyone.

    I’ve tried to kill myself 3 different times. Each time I’ve come back from the brink of death. First time, I took 4600mg of temapzam. Don’t think I got the spelling right but it’s a benzo sleeping pill. Woke up in the hospital a day later. Doctor told me I have a strong body cause there’s nothing they could do for me. They had to let it run its course and hope on the best. Second time, I had a 40mm handgun jam. Fucking jam, what are the odds. I’ve fired that pistol a million times. Third time, drank an entire fifth of devils cut in an hour and took 30 2mg k pins. Again woke up in the hospital hours later. Fucking alive….. a lot of people tell me I’m “here for a reason” “I’m meant for something more”, now here I am. The fourth time, thinking about it again and again, I’m sick everyday, I’m in pain everyday, I need surgery on my stomach, I have the insurance but the doctors just won’t fucking do it. And to be quite frank I’m sick of being sick. I’m sick of feeling like this day in and day out. I have 3000 mg of trazadone layed out in front of me. But after reading some comments doesn’t sound like a reliable option. That just that more fucking depressing.

    My grandma is on 1000mg a day, she tried to commit suicide with 100 pills at 1000mg a pill. She woke up the next morning very groggy and confused. She is 83 and doctors are useless at helping her for the last 2 years. We live in Canada and most of our doctors just don’t give a shit about you, just about Making money it seems.

    Just wanted to say that I mistakenly took too much Trazodone several days ago and just about died. I was laying in bed when suddenly I felt like my body was compressing, kind of like a whale on land. I was so “relaxed” that I was barely breathing, and my heart was racing. Realizing that the worst thing I could do right now is relax more, I got up and had to literally crawl to the bathroom. There, I blew my bowls out and proceeded to vomit everything out at the same time. My mother seemed to sense that something was wrong and came to check on me. She had to hold the bucket for me as I vomited and shat all at once because I was too sedated to hold it myself and it took all of my power just to stay on the toilet. I could not talk, and so I was unable to scream for help. I had no intention of killing myself, but I’ll say this to the people who are. No matter what death you choose to off yourself, in the end, at the very last moment you’re here… You will want to live, you will begin trying to fight, but sometimes… It’s too late. And that last second will last for hours, as it did for me even though I lived. Trazadone has a miniscule chance of killing you because of how it reacts to the body, so I may not have been in any true danger. But it felt like it, and it was the most terrifying ten minutes of my life. I beg you, don’t die. Don’t take your own life.
