> I understand your reluctance to take something known for sexual side effects, since I've experienced them, too. Have you tried mitigating them, rather than trying to avoid drugs that might cause them?

I didn't experience only anorgasmia but low libido and erection dysfunction too. I tried to mitigate with cyproheptadine, yohimbe, Gingko Biloba, Arginine and Indian generic bupropion.
No success with the first three. Arginine helps. But sexual side effects are not my only reason for wanting a switch from a drug acting on 5HT to a drug acting on NE.

>I'm sorry things are so limited for you. That's very rough.

Yes, on 23 drugs approved in France as antidepressants, 9 are sedating, 10 intermediate and only 4 are stimulating.
If you have a depression with anxiety and insomnia you have plenty of choices, but if you have depression with asthenia and inhibition the choices are more resticted.
