Celexa, Wellbutrin, Ginkgo and Sex

Hi all,

I am a 22 year-old guy and I have been on 20 mg/day Celexa for four months. At first, I was unable to achieve orgasm. I began to take Wellbutrin to counteract this. 150 mg a day had no impact. I was desperate, since I had been with a new girlfriend for a month and had never been able to orgasm during intercourse (imagine the suffering! but an interesting role reversal...), so I upped the Wellbutrin to 150 mg/twice a day and also began to take Gingko Biloba. Here's what I found through a little trial and error of going off one medication at a time for a few days:

The Wellbutrin did not noticeably affect my ability to have an orgasm, but it did _dramatically_ increase the intensity of my orgasms.

The Gingko Biloba enabled me to have an orgasm.

As far as the AD properties, the Celexa made a marked difference in my mood, but I'm not sure if the Wellbutrin has complemented that. In fact, I'm not sure if I'm getting anything out of the Wellbutrin other than amazing orgasms (what? that's not enough?!).Ideally, I would like to take more Celexa, but my ability to orgasm is borderline and I'm already taking Gingko three times a day.

I'm wondering if I should consider switching to a different SSRI, but I'm hesitant to do so, b/c the AD properties of the Celexa have been excellent.

Any thoughts?

TJ
