Variable: Zoloft (sertraline) is in the class of antidepressants called ssri. Selective serotonin release inhibitors. They allow yhour brain to recycle serotonin a chemical messenger. Lack of this chemical is felt to be part of the basis for depression. Ssri do not really decrease lipido or erection at all. They delay ejaculation or increase the time from erection to orgasm. The higher the dose the longer it takes.

Congradulations. You have found a nice combination of meds that seem to be helping. Be sure to have your Blood Pressure checked periodically if you stay on the Buspar as it also works on the adrengeric system.
