I have no problem with Wellbutrin whatsoever. I took for a time at very high dose 600 mg? Caused tinnitis. But for MDD I feel that SSRIs and SNRIs, NSRIs are the worst drugs on the market! I don't know your age but I would stay away from neuroleptics old or new. If you are over 40 they cause all sorts of problems. I took Abilify at 2 mg for 4 years and developed Tardive Dyskensia. I found that the older tricyclics like Doxepin had less bad side effects. But I am sorry to tell you that almost any antidepressant is going to have negative sexual side effects in men. That said, if you can view this as a temporary time in your life, sometimes it is worth it to sacrifice a part of your happiness with the knowledge that you will get to a better time and resume a good sex life. I know, hard to believe. I can now look back on all of the meds I have taken, and I believe even the ones I hated, Abilify, Lexapro, Lamictal, Effexor, Risperdal, educated me as to what I didn't need, couldn't tolerate and just plain refused to take. It sounds as if you don't like Lithium. As you say you are not bipolar I would find out how to titrate off of it. If your doctor is treating you like a "bad patient" for disagreeing with his course for you, then find someone else. Just find someone who suits you as a person. Please don't go off of any med before you have a new doc who will help you, if that's what you want. You have to become your own advocate and sometimes that involves taking a stand and not backing down. As a doc told me a long time ago, you know your body (and mind) parenthesis mine, so let that be your guide. My best wishes for you.
