Side Effects of Nefazodone
There are a number of possible side effects with nefazodone that you should report immediately to your healthcare provider. These include, but are not limited to:
- Suicidal thoughts or behavior (see Serzone and Suicide)
- A painful erection of the penis that does not go away (priapism)
- Signs of liver damage, such as yellow eyes or skin, upper abdominal pain, dark urine, and appetite loss (see Serzone and Liver Failure)
- Anxiety, agitation, or panic attacks
- Hostility or aggressiveness
- Engaging in unusual or dangerous activities
- Restlessness or inability to sit still
- Extreme elation or feeling of happiness that may switch back and forth with a depressed or sad mood
- Other unusual changes in behavior
- Fast heart rate
- Chest palpitations
- Difficulty sleeping
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including unexplained rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing or swallowing.
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the nefazodone side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of nefazodone, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
