All: Most all antidepressants can affect a person's normal sexual functioning at various different levels and in different ways. The antidepressants which affect serotonin can cause problems with the ability to have an orgasm. The one antidepressant which has the lowest risk for sexual side-effects is called buproprion or wellbutrin (bupropion).

How do I get of my anxiety/ depression med?

Stopping medication: Medicines used for anxiety or depression are not normally started and stopped suddenly. Depending on the dose, these medicines are normally reduced slowly, over several days or weeks, under the supervision of a medical provider. The provider who originally prescribed these would be the best person to ask, at least before anyone else is asked to help.
