Abstract

Trazodone is a SARI (serotonin[2A] antagonists/reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant which is commonly used in a wide variety of mental disorders from mood and sleep disorders up to the pharmacotherapy of the drug abuse/ /dependence. The aim of this paper is to review the scope of clinical applications of trazodone with specific focus on depression where both, monotherapy and combined treatment with other drugs are well founded in the general clinical practice. Trazodone use in pharmacotherapy of anxiety and sleep disorders is also addressed along with its use in behavioural symptoms of dementia and substance use/abuse.
