The drug has an antidepressant (thymoleptic) effect, combined with anxiolytic and tranquilizing effect. In terms of pharmacological properties and neurochemical effects, it differs from typical antidepressants; does not reduce the depressive effects of reserpine, weakens the central effects of phenamine and the peripheral effect of norepinephrine; It does not have a noticeable effect on the neuronal capture of catecholamines, but selectively blocks the capture of serotonin.

Applied with different forms of depression (endogenous, psychotic, neurotic, somatogenic, etc.) with anxiety, tension.

Due to its well tolerated absence of a cholinolytic effect, trazodone is widely used in the treatment of elderly patients with organic diseases of the central nervous system, as well as in the complex treatment of patients with somatic diseases complicated by mental disorders (anxiety, tension, etc.).
