DO NOT TAKE TRAZADONE--MY HORROR STORY!!!
1659views
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
