Q: Can you take diazepam with trazodone?

Is it Ok to take diazpam during the day for anxiety and trazodone at night for insomnia.

I've tried generic Ambien at night at it seems to help only slightly - fall asleep Ok but wake after a few hours.  That;s why we switched to Trazodone.

See my answer later on - only difference is valium has a longer half life.

I Take 10 to 20Mg during The day...stop, and 300Mg of trazadone at nite. these are necessary for my sleep and nocturia (urination that can be up to 2.5 liters an evening) I have been doing this under a doctors advice. but YOU MUST see a doctor to make sure that's what you need. And you are right...valium has a tremendous 1/2 life...I Got off Xanax with the help of valium...Xanax is horrible. The detoxing without it will let you stay up for 3-5 days. And getting of valium is easy....20,20,20,20,20,20,20,20, 15, 15,15,15,15,15,, 10,10,10,10,10, 5, 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5 and so forth.
