Trazodone should be administered as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give more medication than directed. May be given with or without food.
Give the dose as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, and continue with the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once.
Side effects associated with trazodone include lethargy, sedation, staggering, vomiting, diarrhea, panting, hyperactivity, shaking, restlessness, and/or agitation. Side effects will generally improve with time so may veterinarians recommend waiting a few days to determine response if the side effects are mild.
Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
