> Cyproheptidine is a very old anti-histimine, which temporarily blocks the action of SRIs, thus blocking the sexual side effects. It's taken as needed, just like Viagra, and apparently it doesn't work for everyone. It has always been helpful for me.

It's probably not a good idea to take it daily -- since it works by blocking the action of the SRI, it seems as though that would decrease the efficacy of the antidepressant, and you won't want that. I would take it a couple of times a week, and it didn't seem to interfere with the AD.

I mentioned this to my doc a few months back, and he said his patients haven't had the greatest luck with it since it is anti-SSRI, so-to-speak. They reported increased depression and the like. I personally have not tried, but have also not ruled it out.
