Trazodone and men.

I have a couple questions about the med Trazodone.

I have never taken it but realize it's used in CP patients as well as to help patients sleep and the obvious, depression.

I haven't tried it, but think it's about time I switch to a different anti-depressant.

I was wondering why with Trazodone there is that warning about if you are a male taking it and have an erection lasting longer than 4 hours to contact your Dr. Why does it have the potential to cause prolonged erections in men?

Any personal experiences with the med? I know I might react differently... but is getting a prolonged erection with the med that common?

Re: Trazodone and men.

I have taken trazodone for sleeping on more then a few occasions with no problems.I haven't heard about the erection thing but I would think if I had an erection that long I would be down at emerg for sure lol.Anyway,like I said I didn't have any problems with it and I still use it occasionally.Good luck....Dave
