Talk to dic: Most abtideressants can cause delayed ejaculation but some less than others--some help with pain sometimes holding the med for a day or so alleviates the sexual side effects--these are things you can discuss with your doc.

SSRI's: I agree with dr. Bey, there can be a number of types of sexual changes on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. You might wish to discuss options like Lexapro (escitalopram) or Celexa with your prescribing physician. They may or may not present with sexual side effects. Take care.
