As with most drugs, trazodone is extensively metabolized by the liver and may cause elevated liver
enzymes even at at normal doses but they are usually mild and don't require dosage adjustments or discontinuation of the medication.
In rare instances chronic hepatitis and other liver disorders have been reported also.
For the majority of users trazodone is safe when used at recommended dosages. Adjustments may be made for patients with pre-existing liver disease and used with caution.
