ConclusionsA low dose of trazodone seems acceptable and effective in reducing insomnia severity and improving concentration and recall abilities in this pilot study. The improvement of cognition could be achieved by alleviation of insomnia severity. Considering the high incidence of insomnia in CSVD patients, the results of this preliminary study support the use of low-dose trazodone to deal with insomnia and cognitive impairment in CSVD.
