That was definitely a happy face!! It has always been suspected that the sexual side effects were underreported, particularly in women. The reporting on this site is not surprising - its easy to say it on here, but how many women would say so to their (often male) psychiatrist ??

Psychiatrist - "So how are you doing?"
Female patient - "well the depression's much better but my orgasms just don't feel quite right"

I have not had the inorgasmia or similar on any other meds - just the efexor.

Re other meds - dothiepin or prozac have not worked - efexor was the first antid to work for me - hopefully mirtazapine will do to as it works on serotonin plus noradrenaline systems
