I am on Fluvoxamine and Trazodone, Fluvoxamine for OCD/health anxiety Trazodone to sleep. Been on both for approximately 3 weeks, for almost that whole time I have had extreme lower body fatigue. I’m wiped out and just want to lay down when I’m home. Almost like you feel when you’re about to get the flu. My Psych says these are not likely side effects and just kind of blows it off. Kind of working against me right now with my significant health anxiety. Anyone else have experience with Fluvoxamine or Trazodone?

Hi Titus. I had a couple year experience with trazodone. It worked quite well the whole time with my sleep difficulties. I really experienced no side effects from this drug. I hope my experience will be of some benefit to your thinking.

i HATE prescription medication!!! :( "trading a symptom for a side effect" and sometimes the side effects are worse!
