    What? For a cold? I wouldn't use it. It's very strong and a bit of skin irritant, too.

    Benefits of eucalyptus:

    • antiseptic
    • anti-stress
    • mental clarity
    • mood enhancer
    • anti-inflammatory
    • respiratory health

    Raspberries are full of melatonin, so I buy frozen raspberries and have a snack in the evening.

    @Mal+

    Some antidepressants that are good for sleep aid are marketed as antidepressants because it cost more if they got it labeled as an antidepressant (instead of a sleep aid.) I don't know much about Trazodone though.... In any case, all anti-depressants usually start out with a low dosage. So that freak accident was because your body was not used to the medication...especially at the dosage that you've token.

    For most antidepressants that make you sleepy, if you drop it to a low dosage, and that you take it at night time about an hour before you go to sleep, you may be groggy for maybe a week or so (but you'll have the best sleep that you have ever had.) After that, you'd still have the best sleep you've have had, but less of that grogginess.

    I would recommend cherries over raspberries.

    This particular PA was just ridiculous. First, he didn't check for contraindications. He didn't seem to consider it at all. And Trazodone is contraindicated with one of my regular meds.

    Second, he didn't consult my medical history at all except to research those meds I've had issues with in the past.

    Third, he stumbled over the pronunciation of one of my meds listed on the chart, although it's a common one.

    Fourth, he didn't warn me to start the Trazodone at a lower dosage. Nor did he tell me anything about it beyond the fact that it's an older insomnia remedy.

    I agree, not only was my body not used to or ready for that medicine, but I also happen to be hypersensitive to medications. For example, I always hallucinate spiders when I take Benadryl.

    Seroquel raises the liver enzymes like a fiend.
