Not sure: As there is no clear interaction reported between trazodone and Tessalon Perles (benzonatate). You may want to review this with your prescribing doctor.

Hmm: I checked for an interaction and did not find any significant ones. Please clarify again with your pharmacist if these were the medications. Seems it should be ok.
