From this study (1 year ago):
All checked side effects started the day after taking Trazodone and have continued for last few days. Severity of all side effects are new and do not think they are related to conditions of fibromyalgia, PTSD, anxiety and depression. I've never been in such a confused mental state and been so sluggish until starting Trazodone.
From this study (2 years ago):
Had pneumonia mid-December 2012. Severe Shortness of breath upon exertion continues.

Looking for assistance with causes and treatments of peripheral neuropathy. Unsure of whether or not medications are helping or making things worse.
