Abstract

Trazodone is a SARI (serotonin(2A) antagonists/reuptake inhibitor) antydepressive drug which is commonly used in a wide variety of mental disorders from mood and sleep disorders to the pharmacotherapy of the drugs abuse. At present, trazodone is the only SARI representative registered in Poland. The characteristic profile of trazodone action makes it a suitable pharmaceutical agent in both monotherapy and in combined therapy with other drugs. The aim of this paper is to review the pharmacological properties of trazodone in scope of the contemporary clinical practice with its therapeutical applications, drug tolerance, safety and side-effects.
