How to deal with sexual side effects like low libido and losing my erection and difficult orgasming I know it's an effect of my antidepressant?

How to deal with sexual side effects like low libido and losing my erection and difficult orgasming I know it's an effect of my antidepressant?

Talk to your doctor: Have you spoken to your doctor about a possible change in your medication? That would be the first step to take. Is your medication doing what it's supposed to be doing in the first place? If not, then, perhaps a complete change to another class of drug would be worth looking into. If the medication is helping with your symptoms then, just a different medication within that same class may work ...Read more

2 months ago, i stopped taking sertraline after 3 years taking this antidepressant, but i'm still having sexual dysfunctions like low libido? Why?

Look into other: Possibilities. If you are on wellbutrin (bupropion) now, there could be several possibilities. One is that it is coming from the wellbutrin (bupropion) since wellbutrin (bupropion) can cause sexual dysfunction. Another possibility is that it is still left over from the zoloft , in which case you simply must give it more time. I would also have your free and total testosterone levels checked by your family practitioner. If that doesn't work there are certainly plenty of medications that can be used. The options are actually numerous. If it all turns out to be psychological then i would recommend that you see a sex therapist. Best wishes for a happy holiday season. ...Read more

Also alcohol is a no-no for both libido and mood control. Talk to your doc. ...Read more

Can the loss of libido be attributed to anti-depressants?

Yes: Loss of libido is a common adverse effect of the ssri antidepressants. Evreyone is different so it is worth trying different ssris until you find one that provides the benefit without that side effect. Bupropion does not cause loss of libido and is often added to an ssri to restore libido. Mirtazepine is an antidepressant that effectively reverses libido loss when added to an ssri. ...Read more

As women age they do sometimes have a drop in androgens though and a decreased sex drive. Weight changes also affect androgen levels. ...Read more
