Trazodone is a prescription medication that’s FDA-approved for treating depression. It is also prescribed by healthcare providers off-label for the treatment of insomnia.

Current and former brand names for trazodone include:

  • Desyrel
  • Oleptro
  • Trialodine

Because trazodone is not a common drug of abuse, its street value is low. A single trazodone tablet will cost less than $5 on average, although this can vary.

How Much Does Trazodone Cost On The Street?

Trazodone can cost anywhere from less than $1 to $15 per tablet when bought on the street. This will depend on several factors commonly known to affect street drug prices.

Factors that can affect the street price of trazodone include:

  • availability and demand
  • where you buy it from
  • drug dosage
  • quantity purchased

Cost Of Trazodone By The Tablet

A single tablet of trazodone can cost anywhere from less than $1 to $15. This will largely depend on the dosage purchased (e.g. 50 mg, 100 mg, 150 mg).

Cost Of Trazodone By The Bottle

A full bottle of trazodone will contain 30 pills, on average. The cost of purchasing a full bottle of trazodone – roughly a 30- to 90-day supply – will vary.

Based on the per pill/tablet cost, the street value of a bottle of trazodone could range from $30 to a few hundred dollars – much higher than the average pharmacy cost.

While some drug dealers will offer a lower price for buying in bulk, others may charge more, depending on local availability, demand, and other factors.

Why Do People Buy Trazodone On The Street?

Trazodone is not commonly bought for recreational purposes. Unlike commonly abused prescription drugs, like Adderall, trazodone does not cause a “high”.

However, trazodone may be abused for its sedative effects, or be mixed with other common drugs of abuse, such as benzodiazepines (e.g. alprazolam) or opioids.

Moreover, if someone is unable to acquire trazodone by prescription, they may turn to illicit dealers for more of the drug.

How Is Trazodone Used?

Trazodone comes only in tablet form, to be taken orally (i.e. swallowed by mouth).

However, people who abuse trazodone may crush and snort tablets, or use another common method of drug abuse, such as injection drug use.
