Oleptro and Orgasm Problems
In clinical studies, "abnormal orgasms" were reported in less than 1 percent of people taking Oleptro. Although the terminology is a bit unclear, this probably means absent or delayed orgasms.
Oleptro and Priapism
Priapism is a very rare side effect of trazodone (the active ingredient in Oleptro). Priapism is a painful erection of the penis that does not go away, even after sexual intercourse or masturbation. If left untreated, priapism can lead to permanent damage to the penis.
For this reason, it is very important to seek medical attention immediately if you think you are having symptoms of priapism. Even though this may seem embarrassing, it is necessary to avoid permanent damage to the penis. If your healthcare provider is not available, you should seek emergency medical care.
Sexual Side Effects With Oleptro: Final ThoughtsIt is impossible for you or your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will develop any sexual problems while taking Oleptro. Also, if you do develop sexual side effects, it can be challenging to know whether these problems are because of Oleptro or other factors.
If you develop sexual side effects while taking Oleptro, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. There is treatment that he or she may be able to recommend. Depending on the severity of your side effects, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your dosage or try another depression medication.
