Hello,
I am very happy to have found this site also, as I am getting no where with my Dr. and hope that someone has some guidance for me. Recently my PCC prescribed Lexapro for me as I had been suffering from anxiety do to stress on the job. Previously I had been on Welbutrin which worked well for my mild SAD and PMDD. But I had gradually weaned myself off as winter was drawing to an end. Well after 19 days on the Lexapro 10mg x1, I have lost the ability to acheive an orgasm during any sexual activity. I should mention that I am a 39yo female, and have never ever had a problem in this area ever before in my life. Needless to say I became horrified and panic stricken and called my Dr. and her solution was to add Welbutrin back on board; 150SR x1. I have to say that the prescribing Dr. is only a general physician, and I am not being followed by a psychiatrist at all. How safe are these medication management approaches? This sie effect was almost imediate for me and quite alarming and never an issue on Welbutrin. I am wondering if the Lexapro was such a good idea? Perhaps a rush to prescribe, perhaps over-kill, seeing that my source of stress is situational, work related and that perhaps I should just return to what worked in the first place which was Welbutrin 150SR x2? Any thoughts out there??? Any suggestions in the physical and sexual response department?
Thanks
