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
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!
