Trazodone Side Effects
Rare Side Effects With Trazodone
Rare side effects occur in less than 1 percent of people taking trazodone. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by the medication or something else.
Some of these rare side effects include but are not limited to:
- Feelings of internal jitteriness or restlessness (akathisia)
- Problems urinating
- Menstrual changes
- Blood in the urine
- Increased salivation
- Speech problems
- Increased appetite
- Ejaculation problems
- Increased sex drive (libido)
- Muscle twitches
You may experience some or none of the side effects of trazodone listed in this article. 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 while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a trazodone side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
