What is Desyrel®?

Desyrel®, also known by its generic name trazodone, is a medication that is primarily used to treat depression. It belongs to a class of drugs known as serotonin antagonist and reuptake inhibitors (SARIs), which work by blocking certain serotonin receptors and increasing the availability of serotonin in the brain. Desyrel® may also be prescribed for other conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.

Side Effects of Desyrel®

As with any medication, Desyrel® may cause side effects. Some of the most common side effects of Desyrel® include:

  • Dry mouth

  • Dizziness

  • Headaches

  • Nausea

  • Constipation

  • Blurred vision

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle pain

While these side effects are generally mild and temporary, some patients may experience more severe side effects, including suicidal thoughts or actions, serotonin syndrome, and priapism (a painful and prolonged erection). Patients should seek immediate attention if they experience any of the above reactions while taking trazodone.

How is Desyrel® Prescribed?

Desyrel® is a prescription medication and can only be prescribed by a licensed healthcare professional. Before prescribing Desyrel®, a healthcare provider will evaluate a patient's medical history and symptoms to determine if it is an appropriate treatment option. The healthcare provider will also provide instructions on how to take Desyrel®, including dosage, frequency, and any precautions or potential side effects to be aware of.
