    The highest safest dose you can take is the exact amount prescribed to you by your doctor. You really shouldn't exceed what youve been prescribed.

    However, here is some info on trazodone.

    Usual adult dosage:

    The recommended initial dose is 150 to 200 mg daily, in 2 or 3 divided doses. Trazodone should be taken shortly after a meal or light snack in order to reduce the incidence of adverse reactions. The initial dose may be increased according to tolerance and response by increments of 50 mg, usually up to 300 mg daily in divided doses. In some patients, doses up to 400 mg daily and rarely up to 600 mg daily in hospitalized patients, may be required. Occurrence of drowsiness may require the administration of a major portion of the daily dose at bedtime or a reduction of dosage. Once an adequate response has been achieved, the dosage may be gradually reduced, with adjustment depending on therapeutic response. During prolonged maintenance therapy the dosage should be kept at the lowest effective level.

    The maximum dose is given 3xper day to Alzheimers patients. But they aren't expected to live long this way. It only calms their response to impending death.

    Only your Dr. or Psychiatrist would be able to tell you that. I only take it as a tranquilizer to sleep better at night, plus several other different medications for bipolar & anxiety disorder. Why are you even asking a question like this?
