sexual side effects of anti depressants
    #8799018 - 08/20/08 01:20 AM (9 years, 5 months ago)

I’m currently taking 40mg’s of lexapro each day (I think this quite a large amount)  I used to exercise all the time to stop my head from clouding over,
now that the lexapro does that I don’t have the same incentive or motivation. 

On top of that it has decreased my sexual drive quite considerably, which wouldn’t have mattered a few months ago,
but now I’ve met this girl and… well you know…

I was just wondering if anyone else here has ever come off lexapro, and if it helped their libido recover,
and whether they have any tips, or alternatives.

I don’t want to go back to how I was before I started taking lexapro, but I feel I’m in a better place now to try and lower my dosage.  Any response appreciated.

this may not be too constructive, however, if exercising was working why resort to a substance to feel better? :confused:

erm it was working to a certain extent, but i was going through a really shit period - and getting suicidal, so I knew something needed to be done and it helped. 

But I feel like I'm in a better place now and ready to get off the stuff

go for it. it would feel SO much better relying on YOURSELF and knowing that YOU defeated the depression on your own.

ultimate self worth :smile:

as for your girl, explaining the honest truth would be wise. if she is mature and likes you for YOU, she will understand.

good luck.

It should recover. Mine did when I came off effexor.
