Iv snorted approx 2g of coke not really strong stuff

Patient: Iv snorted approx 2g of coke not really strong stuff. Av took a Buspar am prescribed can I take sum Trazodone for sleep safely??

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion.Both buspirone and trazodone work as anti-anxiety medications p romoting sleepiness. However trazodone is an antidepressant of the serotonin antagonist and reuptake inhibitor (SARI) class. It is a phenylpiperazine compound and may lead to serotonin syndrome if the effect is potentiated, so its not recommended at all.Wishing you good health,Regards
