Allergic Reaction to Trazadone
I didn't have this reaction. If fact, Trazodone has been very helpful for me for sleep with no side effects. I DID have exactly the same experience you are describing when I took my one and only Cymbalta pill for fibromyalgia. Good luck!

TRAZADONE STORY
1344views
Hey, I take this medicine. Ive been on it for about a month now. When you take it you have to have food in your stomach, never take it on an empty one it will make you really sick. Also once it kicks in you HAVE to lay down and do not get up. Youll feel your limbs started to get heavy like its hard to even lift your own arm. You do get a very weird kind of heavy floaty feeling. If you stand you can faint, pass out, or black out. The room does spin. I know it can be kinda scary the first time bu

DO NOT TAKE TRAZADONE--MY HORROR STORY!!!
Thank you for sharing your horrible experiences. I will not use this drug
August 24, 2014
I have also been taking trazadone for years and have muscle pain cramps in that area sometimes after I urinate or at random times. I started eating healthier and taking supplements and it got better. I am very sorry for your injury my friend. Some where out there there is a doc that can fix you I hope. Keep looking don't give up !!

I am a 16 year old female, I took Trazadone for the first time a few weeks ago, I wasn't prescribed but I'm diagnosed with insomnia so in desperate need I took 2 of my moms Trazadone pills, being stupid thinking that one wouldn't work but thinking that 2 would. That night I was already extremely stressed out from boy trouble and had very little if not any food in my stomach. About 15 minutes later I noticed the pills started to kick in and I felt like I had to throw up, from then I just decided

LISA this is a dire t result of TRAZADONE. Reasearch the net and you will see MANY MANY men are impotent and cannot achieve a erection. When you view the litigation awards that total in millions to tens of millions depending on the case you can be DAM sure that those drug companies fought tooth and nail and LOST. If there was any chance this was just a coincidence you would not see men who have taken the same drug and have same side effect. And if read the warnings this directly states a side e

I've been taking trazodone for sleeping. I've been on it for almost four years now. I've never had a bad experience or health issues. Are you sure it's the trazodone that is making you sick?
Lisa  |  May 22, 2014
I KNOW it was trazodone because my Urologist said so. If you take a look at TRAZODONE awards or lawsuits you will see awards for this same exact situation except not as many surgeries that settle in millions to tens of millions. I did my homework before I posted.

Tried to say "not cheap" but ran out of space, I guess.

Trazodone does indeed cause priapism and this sounds like it could be related. Sadly, the doctor did not figure this out until the nerve damage had been done. For those with nerve pain, please google PEA Pure or Institute for Neuropathic Pain Netherlands. They have stuff in Europe for nerve pain and it can be imported now that the packaging has the proper English supplement facts on it. I have imported it and used it for nerve pain. It does help, but it takes awhile to kick in and it is not che
Kate  |  April 23, 2014
I'm sorry to hear that you have had such pain and that your lifestyle has significantly suffered; however, I do not believe that trazodone has caused any of your problems. They were probably pre-existing and you only noticed them at around the time you took trazodone. I am no expert but it sound like a normal human mistake associating oneproblem with a coincidental (false) "cause".
Patrick  |  March 25, 2014
Why is it that you think that Trazodone caused this? There is nothing in your story that gives a correlation between the two. What is causing your scrot pain?

does anyone know if it's a smooth transition from Cymbalta (Duloxetine) to Trazodone?
Try getting another drug... We are after the FDA to have this drug removed

I have the same swallowing problem with Trazadone but not a breathing problem. I don't eat after taking it and drinking water or milk isn't a problem. Might want to check the dose

trazadone and swallowing problem
I had trouble swallowing as well, and when you take Trazadone with Caffiene, you could end up in ER with crazy high blood pressure. Ugh
