In reply to Cigarettes or Lexapro, Wellbutrin Sex?, posted by wharfrat on December 18, 2002, at 16:06:58

> Oh what a tangled web we weave! Am going to see my doc about putting me on Wellbutrin to see if it will help with the sexual side effects of Lexapro. I'm sure he will do it because he's been nagging me about smoking since I started going to him. He really was disappointed when he got my blood work back and gave me a physical (41 years old by the way)and found no reason to say "smoking is going to kill you". Good cholesterol good, Bad cholesterol good, white cells good, red cells good, kidneys good, liver good, heart good, stress test good, anxiety and depression BAD!!.Lexapro good, sexual side effects BAD!! So now the choice is down to two of the only things that I really enjoy. Sex and cigarettes (That sounds pretty pathetic does'nt it?) So my question is, I've heard that wellbutrin just makes you not want to smoke anymore. What if I don't want to quit smoking but just want my sex life back? Is this like what they gave young Alex on A Clockwork Orange? Will I retch at the thought of a cigarette? Won't I be able to have a cigarette after sex? Oh the pain!! Has anyone used Wellbutrin just to quit smoking? What are the side effects? Will I be wired out? Will I be Zombie?

I have never used Welbutrin, though my nephew did and his mom and step-dad are smokers, and it drove him crazy -- he would holler about their smoking all day long (and he's just a kid).

However, I am an ex-smoker (quit cold-turkey 12 years ago), and I don't think it is a bad idea to quit anyhow. Even if you are healthy, life is just much better without it. And you figure out what to do after sex other than have a cigarette.
