Disabled Veteran with PTSD Humiliated at Atlanta VA Hospital

U.S. veteran left with weeks-long erection after given sleep medication at VA Hospital: attorney 
Edward Stalling was not only left impotent but a laughingstock among doctors at the Atlanta VA Medical Center after taking a single day’s dosage of antidepressant Trazodone in October, his attorney told the Daily News.

Trazodone, according to Weill Cornell Medical College's Department of Urology, has an "uncommon side-effect of prolonged erection" that occurs in approximately one out of 10,000 to 20,000 users.

A U.S. veteran being treated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was instead left with a weeks-long erection after prescribed a sleep aid by a VA Hospital, his attorney claims.

A single dosage of antidepressant Trazodone in October was enough to not only "disfigure" Edward Stalling but leave him completely impotent and a laughingstock among the doctors and nurses at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, his attorney told the Daily News.

"They treated him as some kind of spectacle to be viewed," Attorney Jonathan Johnson said of the former service member's treatment.

"One had mentioned that I should line up all the women," Stalling recalled a doctor's alleged jest to CBS46. "I haven't had that many people who had seen it in my whole life, until I went to that hospital."
