Lower dose or switch: Delay or prevention of ejaculation is a side effect of all drugs in this class (ssris). Discuss these possible options with the prescriber of your meds: 1. Half dose on a day you want to be sexual 2. Delay taking the med until after sexual activity. 3. Change to a different anti-depressant known to have less frequent sexual side effects, such as venlafaxine. Good luck.

This is good advice. Ask your psychiatrist and general physician whether yohimbine might be appropriate.

You're not alone: Many men who take the stuff lose the ability to climax. Ask your physician whether you can go off for a day during which you plan sex, or whether you can try yohimbine.
