Re: Prozac and Sex

I took a Prozac/Wellbutrin combo for six months and a Cexlexa/Wellbutrin combo for another six months a couple of years ago. I am a 36 year old guy and had the same problem as you. And I was in the same situation: I met a woman and started having a sexual relationship right after starting the meds. Damn, doesn't that just bring out all the fatalistic thinking that goes with GAD and depresion to begin with? Anyway, the sexual side-effects dissipated within a couple of weeks after stopping the meds. And, sorry to say, Celexea and Prozac both gave me anorgasmia, lack of interest in sex, etc.
My psychiatrist recommended ginko while I was on the meds, but that never helped me. I haven't tried Serzone for more than a a week, so I can't help you there, though I have heard some say the sexual side-effects are minimized on that drug. I took a low dose of Effexor for a little while, and that actually enhanced my orgasms, delayed them in a pleasurable way. However, I hated all the other side-effects with Effexor (headaches, numb hands and feet while sleeping, insomnia, horrible withdrawal, even after a week). I'm still searching for "natural" ways to treat my anxiety/depression, but nothing matches the efficacy of SSRIs so far. It's damn frustrating, to put it mildly. Hope that helps, dude, and good luck!
