A 46-year-old member asked:

My boyfriend stopped taking zoloft (sertraline) and since then he ejaculates prematurely, is this a normal side effect?

Yes.: Zoloft (sertraline) and other medications like it (ssris) can delay orgasm. Now that the medication has been stopped, this side effect has likely stopped as well.
