Thanks for all the answers everyone. I read the product warnings which confirm what most are saying. I checked the warnings at Walgreens pharmacy site which included ED and loss of the ability to perform which has me wondering?

Hi, it is actually more common for patients to experience enhancement of libido, and an increase in erectile function. If you are experiencing the opposite, and it is affecting you badly, please speak to your doctor about what you can do to help this

I was given Trazodone a few years ago and I took it for about 2 years and I also had problems with loss of desire, but I also think that it had alot to do with the fact that it made me so sleepy, but once I was off of it everything went back to normal for me.
Good luck to you!

I've been on Trazodone for 2 weeks for sleep... and for the last week, my sex drive is insanely high! I've called my husband home at noon for a quicky. I got home the other night and be was asleep and I woke him up to a blow job. He had to go to the chiropractor due to our crazy amount of extra sextivaties.

I take 50mg of trazodone every night but trazodone has such a short half-life that if you skip a dose you can make your girlfriend happy the next night
