Dizziness and nauseau did not go away until the drug was completely out of my system.
From this study (2 years ago):
Melinda on Jul, 11, 2012:
The first 10 years of taking Trazadone & Levothyroxin, I experienced mild early morning fatigue which was alleviated by 2 cups of coffee. In the last 3 or 4 years, following the same regimen (25ml. Trazadone + 75mcg Levothyroxine), the fatigue is extremely severe & is never alleviated. The exhaustion lasts 24/7 regardless of how much rest and/or nightime sleep I have.
From this study (3 years ago):
I do not like my medication. It is hindering my recovery.
