I have been taking Seroquel for about 8 years for sleep and it doesn't work anymore. I went to my doctor today and he gave me a prescription for Trazodone, 50mg for sleep. I've heard Trazodone creates adverse reactions including nightmares so I decided to do some research of my own. I found out that one side effect is priapism, prolonged, painful erection, and that makes me wary of taking the drug. Has anyone here suffered from priapism after taking Trazodone?
Hi. I have been taking Trazodone for 20 years. I ave been on a steady dose of 150mgs for the most part with no issues. However It was increased to 300mgs and got Priapism. I dropped the dose back down straight away with no further issues. There was no serious long term implications other than been quite sore for 3-4 weeks afterwards.
