I have anxiety, insomnia and get heart palpitations and pvc's. I am scared trazodone could make these worse. I took it 2 nights and it did help me sleep, but am anxious it can cause a heart rate problem. I also just started celexa with it.
Hello Stellarred78. I went to several sources that I use, and although it is listed as a serious, adverse side effect could not find anyone reporting any issues in regards to Trazodone and thier heart. I used it myself for several years as a sleep aid and was comfortable taking it. That you are taking the Celexa along with it brought up a red flag in regards to Serotonin Syndrome.(ss) Not that unusual. Many drug combinations are used with ss being listed as a warning. Regards, pledge
Hello stelllarred78, I was prescribed trazadone for sleep 150 mgs. I took one pill and I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest. Next time I broke them in half which went quite smoothly and has ever since. I am a senior citizen sooo. saucerman
I have been taking trazodone for several years for sleep and I have no problems with it. I am taking several medications along with it, Cymbalta, Nuvigil, Lyrica, Flexeril, blood pressure and thyroid medication. I have Norco and Xanax when I need it. My heart is fine and don't have any issues. Wish you luck!
Yes after taking it I noticed the first three nights my heart started beating faster than normal which I found awkward considering it was prescribed to me for insomnia, I discussed this with my physician but she said my claim was unheard of, however I know what I felt and I've stopped taking them for something less intrusive.
