Too afraid of meds?: Not everyone taking an ssri has sexual problems; they may, if they occur, go away on their own or may be treated with other medication. Many with anxiety disorders are often especially afraid of taking medications when in fact the benefits of medication could greatly outweigh any negative effects. Discuss potential risks and benefits with a doctor you trust, not the internet.
