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

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.

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
