Trazodone abuse has become a quite significant problem in many parts of the world. It is a prescription medication used in treating disorders such as sleeping problems, eating disorders and cocaine addiction as well as panic attacks or anxiety. Unfortunately, like many prescription drugs, trazodone contains an element of habit forming properties. It may not be very long before a user becomes hooked on the drug.
While its addiction potential is not as high as that of other medications, continued use of trazodone over a prolonged period of time is likely to lead to dependence. This underlines the importance of using the drug only for the medically approved purpose and in the right prescription doses without extending the duration of use.
