Hi Everyone - interesting the turn this thread has taken. I just got from the Psyshiatrist with my hubby. I asked him about what can be done about the sexual side affects I was having with the Lexapro (or anything SSRI for that matter) and he mentioned adding Wellbutrin with it to help with that - or switching completely to Wellbutrin. I do not know what to do though, because the Lexapro is working WONDERFULLY for me - except for this orgasm problem :rolleyes: I hate to mess around with my meds when this is helping me so much. He also mentioned Cymbalta was a better one with less sexual side affects. Any one tried either of these?

Adam - I asked him about doing the switch over and he said that he tells his patients to go to half strength on both meds for three days, then the fourth day - so full strength with the new one. I understand your concern about the sexual side affects - as that is depressing me too :eek: I have got to find a way to over come this, someway!!

Ok so I should try doing paxil 1/2 pill for 3 days and lexapro 1/2 a pill for 3 days, then just do the full lex on day 4? That doesnt sound too bad...i guess mixing the two wouldnt hurt? : )
Kelly, I called my doctor today and they called me in a prescription of Periactin to try. It is an antihistimine that you take an hour before sex and it's supposed to block the side affects from your AD (like the sexual ones). I have a friend that just tried it (her psyc gave it to her) and she said it worked for her - so I'm going to try it this weekend. The downside is that it will make you sleepy - I am so small, I hope it doesn't knock me out before sex - or I will miss it, ha ha. If not - I will get a really good night's sleep! Will let you know how it works :wave:
