Trazodone Prescription Causes Patient to Develop Priapism

The client developed priapism, which is a potentially harmful and painful medical condition in which the erect penis does not return to its flaccid state. After four hours, irreversible damage can occur. The client’s priapism resulted from a prescription of Trazodone which he had been prescribed for anxiety. The prescribing doctor never told the client to seek immediate medical care if priapism developed and then failed to immediately act when client called reporting an erection. Client sought a claim against doctor and called Pennsylvania Malpractice Law Firm Rosen Louik & Perry. This case settled for policy limits of $1,000,000.00 immediately before opening statements.
