Witch is work better Ta add to paxil for low energy low sex drive wellbutrin or buspar (buspirone)? I tried many antidepressants but not work!!

Wellbutrin (bupropion): of the SSRIs, paxil may be the most likely to affect energy and sex drive. changing to a different SSRI may be the first option. both wellbutrin and buspar (buspirone) may help with the sexual side effects of an SSRI, but between the two, wellbutrin has more evidence and may also be more activating. would caution if anxiety is high, regular alcohol use, or any concerns for seizures. ...Read more

CBT, SSRI,SNRI, Beta-blockers haven't helped to control my social anxiety. Is there any medication which can 'knock me out' before social situations ?

CBT, SSRI,SNRI, Beta-blockers haven't helped to control my social anxiety. Is there any medication which can 'knock me out' before social situations ?

Exposure therapy: Exposure therapy uses gradually increased exposure to anxiety triggers coupled w/ relaxation training. SSRIs can help but @ times more effective is learning to deal w/ it differently w/ help of a therapist who specializes in exposure-based therapy. CBT is good but sometimes acting your way into thinking & feeling different works better than trying to think your way into feeling & acting different. ...Read more

Need sex drive back! will levitra (vardenafil) help?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
6 doctors agreed:
Need sex drive back! will levitra (vardenafil) help?

Maybe but not likely: Levitra (vardenafil) (or Cialis or staxyn or stendra or viagra) may help improve sex drive if it's a matter of loss of confidence due to erectile dysfunction. But if that's not the case, these drugs won't help improve/increase libido. Instead, look at stress (relationship, money, work, family, friends), health, medications & finally, last but not least, low testosterone. ...Read more
