Buspar (buspirone): Buspar (buspirone) might be the better option to discuss with your doctor.

SSRI + wellbutrin (bupropion): In my practice, i prescribe the ssri's for anxiety, which usually work very well. If sexual side effects are problematic, i add on wellbutrin (bupropion) 100 -300 mgs daily, which very frequently clears up the sexual side effects. Other add on medications may also help.

Meds & Sexual Health: Sexual functioning depends on factors, both physiological (such as medications) as well as psychological (such. As anxiety)..Buspar (buspirone) can be effective for "pure" anxiety. Wellbutrin is an antidepressant and best treats anxiety as part of a depressive syndrome. It is also sometimes uses as an "antidote " for the sexual side effects. Speak with your doctor about which choice would be best for you.
