Final Thoughts on Trazodone Sexual Side Effects

It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will develop any sexual side effects with trazodone. Also, if sexual side effects do occur, it is challenging to know whether these problems are because of the condition or trazodone itself. Sexual symptoms are common with depression. In fact, one-third of people with untreated depression report sexual side effects.
 
If you develop sexual side effects while taking trazodone, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. He or she may be able to recommend treatments. Depending on how severe your trazodone sexual side effects are, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your dosage or try another depression medication.
