Success Story!! Finally! utvols92

In reply to SSRIs and Male Sex Probs (add W-butrin or Viagra?), posted by utvols92 on January 14, 2001, at 10:08:29

> i have taken zoloft, celexa and now prozac. All cause ejaculatory delay, which as many of you probably know, is VERY frustrating! My doctor said at one point that possibly adding Wellbutrin might stave off the sexual side effects. And, she also mentioned possibly trying Viagra (Even though I told her that GETTING an erection is NOT a problem, achieving orgasm IS). Does anyone have any advice, tips, etc??? HELP!!!

I recently had the same problem as can be read by my threads back a month or so ago. I was placed on Luvox and my sex drive dropped completely. I couldn't get an erection and if I did, I wasn't able to maintain it. I called the pdoc up and told him that these symptoms had to be changed and changed soon (I'm married). He order 100mg wellbutrin SR a day and lowered the luvox. This helped a little and there were a couple of times sex actually worked. I soon dropped the luvox altogether and the doc gave me 3 100mg wellbutrin sr tabs a day. Now, I must say there is a definite improvement, especially with erection. Not a problem at all. Also, I have found that alcohol (while on wellbutrin) will incapacitate erection.

The orgasm thing is still strange though. I can't seem to get it to go near as much as normal. It used to go everytime, but now its maybe 50%. Still, its an improvement, and my mood suprisingly has been much better than when I was on SSRI's - prozac, zoloft, luvox (which didn't work at all). I had no problems with elavil before but still have some sexual problems from the benzos I'm also taking, especially right near the time I dose.

Basically, try wellbutrin and completely ween off the ssri's. Get on a decent dose, like 200-400mgs and you should have no problems.

Now if I could only find out how to get my wife to have an orgasm each time we have sex, and she's not on anything.....but thats a different topic in and of itself. Anybody know a url for tips?? : )
