On prozac (fluoxetine). Can't lower dosage. How can I counteract the side effect of taking a very long time to orgasm?
Not likely.: If orgasms made people depressed, there would be a lot less pregnancies! Talk to your doc about your feelings. Also make sure there is nothing physically wrong that may affect your mood.

Does adding welbutrin to a Prozac (fluoxetine) regimen increase sexual response and interest ? Does it reduce irritability? Foes it help a woman with orgasm
Possibly: It is unfortunate that a medicine like fluoxetine which helps so many people 10-20% or more of the time can really inhibit sexual desire and response. Probably the first thing to do would be to have fluoxetine discontinued before going forward with wellbutrin (bupropion). Wellbutrin (bupropion) can help with this issue and it is not known for having sexual side effects. It can reduce irritability and may help orgasm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can I stop Prozac (fluoxetine) a few days before major surgery? I'm worried that withdrawal may affect general anesthesia or cause problems during the operation.

If you need to be on a clear liquid diet prior to surgery, it still should be ok to take your medicines with a sip if water. However, stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) does not affect general anesthesia in any significant way. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
