I would have to advise you to talk with your doctor(s) about your situation. If you are taking Trazodone as an anti-depressant, and the symptoms of depression are not remitting, you may have to talk with your doctor about modifying the dosage. As far as your question here is concerned, the lethal dose of Trazodone is much higher than the maximum allowed daily dose, and there are hardly any reports of death caused by Trazodone overdose. Please talk with a healthcare provider as soon as you can.

Hope this helps.

Take care
