Sexual side effects suck! -I want to come off Paxil
    #3707157 - 01/31/05 01:04 PM (12 years, 22 days ago)

Hey everyone.

I'm looking for some personal opinions. I've been on Paxil for over 2 years now, at 20mg daily. I just can't deal with the sexual side effects anymore, which in turn depresses me (ironic?)

This guy had a similar problem:

Any advice?

I was on Paxil and Wellbutrin at the same time. It was horrible. I had a BIG sexual side effect(I could not get off no matter how hard I tried). I don't know if the Paxil or the Wellbutrin caused that. It was not a fun month. Don't take that shit....it sucks.

I was on paxil and had the same problem.. could not ejaculate no matter how hard I tried. It was hell... especially since I was 16. Solution - get off paxil.

Yeah, there seem to be a lot of sexual side effects associated with SSRI's. Some doctors prescribe Wellbutrin simultaneously, as it is reported to help with the side effects, although clearly not in all cases. I would recommend slowly coming off of it, but that's just me and my dislike of SSRI's.

Shroomism...your avatar is definitely trippy.

Hey Guys

I called the doc today, and he told me to go from 20mg to 10mg for the next 4 weeks, and then I can stop.

I can't wait to sex it up like normal again! :doggystyle:

PEACE

Yeah, I was on SSRI's for awhile myself. Paxil, in fact. No good t'was. Should have seen my ex's face, twisted in pain, after a 45 minute blow job. She was not impressed!

I'm not sure if it's related but it still takes me a long time to get off. I can very easily have sex for half an hour or more. By all accounts from talking to my friends about the matter this is a rarity. Not sure if it's permanately altered my sex drive or something. Mmm... Damn reuptake inhibitors.

This is even more discouraging that I was expected.  The first time I was on Lexapro (the drug that the man switched to) was when I was 15.  I was sexually active back then and I would never orgasm from oral secks and sometimes would have secks and go 60+ minutes before I said "I'm tired, this is boring, bye".

Fast forward a few years to the present where I've started taking Lexapro for a second time.  It's been an extrodinarily long time since I masturbated seeing how I cannot even sustain an erection. :frown:  Where is there hope for me?

Yes, talk to your psychiatrist/psychologist. The whole point of drugs is to improve your quality of life. If the drug significantly effects your quality of life, it is their responsibility to help you find a solution.

I personally don't like prescription drugs at all unless they are ABSOULUTELY necessary (which is why I started taking Lexapro again...). If Paxil has seemingly permanently affected your drive, then you MIGHT want look into / research / "talk to your doctor about" taking certain supplements or herbs. I don't have any first hand experience (yet), but there are a hell of a lot of drive improvers that have been used for ages of empires.

Ex: Peruvian Maca, Horny Goat Weed, Yohimbe, Ginko Biloba....

i took paxil myself, and while te side effects sucked [acid reflux like effects and stomach problems, t is an effective drug if taken properly and for the right reasons.

i am by *NO* means a porponent of our society's pharmacutical overkill, but it seems to me that a lot of people who need strong help sell thier medcations short because there are unpleasant somatic effects ascociated with the drug. always evaluate the need for the medication, and do it honestly, then evaluate the proble4ms. only when the problems do outweigh the benefits should tey be the reason for comming off the medication. otherwise, a lack of need for the medication shoudl generaly be the reason to do so [wich i suspect is the true case in a lot of people anyway].

for a great many males, this one effect seems reason enough not to use the medication, and as long as your depression/anxiety/other issues can be resolved via another medication/herbal treatment or personaly; this would be good reason not to take it. if the latter resolution is true, you robably didn't need the paxil anymore anyway.

I was on paxil it helped a little but the side affects were hell. I'm on Serzone now and I have noticed a increase in... well what paxil takes away. You may want to look in on it.

Peace, Fungi x

Serzone isn't an SSRI and doens't have sexual side effects, so how does that work differently? I think I read something about how Serzone patients have somewhat (don't know if it's significant) increased risk of liver and hepatic failure.

I'm about two weeks away from completely coming off. My doses have been cut in half for the past two weeks. Starting to feel a lil strange, but I'm dealing with it. I've been lifting weights like crazy for the past 6 weeks, and it seems to be helping.

Peace

Yeah, I just lowered my dose of Lexapro for the third time and am down to 5mg. About a week ago, my secks drive came back like a blight.

SSRI's destroy sexual desire, no doubt.

Did you quit "cold turkey" (not lowering the dose gradually over time)? When I did this with Lexapro the first time I quit, it seemingly produced permanent anxiety and other negative effects.

I think its 1 in 100,000 will have adverse reactions. My doctor also told me most of the time people who had these complications were drinking heavily on the medication.
