Just asking. I had a coworker ask. She said, she took trazodone and her blood pressure went up. I thought people (not common) that took trazodone, there blood pressure went down? Ummm
I take 50mg of trazodone before bed. And my blood pressure has actually went down, since taking it. (Over two months now) at my last dr.appt last week bp was in the normal, to a little lower, range. It use to be higher than normal. So, I guess it depends on the dosage and the person. Good luck to your friend... Taylor
I was put on trazodone 50mg @ night to help me sleep. I have always been on the hypotensive side (low blood pressure) but since starting this 3 months ago, I now have chronic sound of my heartbeat in my left ear, headaches, insomnia and now my BP is high! Anywhere from 112/92 to 136/98. And there is nothing in the side effects that match what is happening to me.
Hi, nana! You should let your doctor know, but this is a common side effect... and it can be hypertension (fast heart rate) or hypotension (slow heart rate). This side effect generally only lasts a few days to a week or so as you adjust to the medication.
"Common (1% to 10%): Hypertension, hypotension, tachycardia, palpitations."
