DO NOT TAKE TRAZADONE--MY HORROR STORY!!!
1604views
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".

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?
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

Quetiapine , and cognitive Impairment
I am feeling the same way, I have been taking 50mg for two weeks a the doctor raised me to 50 mg at bed and 25 mg in the morning. I am fatigued, down, not able to think clearly. This is crazy, I feel that I'm go into depression because of my symptoms.

antipsychotic meds are too much risk to be used off-label

The light switch
Thanks for the thoughtful post. I was also an eldest. Given my emotional makeup, being very responsible, always the good girl the responsibility of caring for siblings, carrying out chores, attempting to keep peace & unsuccessfully lead my charges to pull their share of the work at a young age took a toll on me too.
I was shy at school & moved every other year. I found relief in theater arts playing characters not me. Later I was discouraged from pursuing theater as a career. Music & books f
