Re: Getting rid of sexual side-effects of Effexor ? Butterfly

I've been on Effexor XR since August/September last year and had numerous side effects including blurred vision, difficulty in urinating, increased appetite, insomnia and poor labido. These all disappeared within about two to three months. I have felt absolutely fine for several months, although I believe largely with the help of cognitive therapy as well as the Effexor. I quite often forget to take my capsule in the morning but am reminded when I start feeling "strange" later in the day.

Anyway, the one side effect that lingers is the "difficulty" in reaching orgasm ie ejaculating. However, I do not see this as a bad side effect. For one thing I can keep going for ages and secondly the orgasms build up over a while and are incredibly intense. To be honest, sex is absolutely brilliant and my wife wonders (jokingly) whether I am also taking viagra. However, I see from this site, that most writers do not share this enjoyment and I only wish they could.
