I have been experiencing chronic muscle pain in my arms, legs, and back for a period of time that might correlate with my time using trazodone.

i've been taking trazodone 50mg to 100mg for almost a year now i can't say i have had anymore ache and pains than usual but the fatigue and sleepiness is a problem and if you have CTS or fibromyalgia or depression those will also sometimes make you feel tired and sleepy too. maybe you should talk with you doctor about how you are feeling and the two of you decide if it's the medication or something else. missy

Hello printer1. Just to add my thoughts to your question. I was on trazodone for several years and truth be told, I didn't have any aches and pains. I took it at night to help me sleep. So sorry,can't say I have experienced what you've been going through. Wishing you the best, pledge

I know that it was back in 2010 that your posted your question. I hope you still are looking for answers.
I have been using Trazodone for about 3 and 1/2 years. I began to have SEVERE lower back pain shortly after commencing use of it. I, however, (strangely enough), still find that 300mgs of Trazodone helps to reduce my pain. Crazy, yes?
If you do some research on the negative effects of this medication, you will read that they include muscle pain.
I hope you stopped using it and are, now, feeling MUCH better!

I can't take any pain medications that are controlled substances, as I am easily addicted to them. I deal with migraines and chronic pain.
