Male sexual side effects on lexapro
« on: January 01, 2014, 07:35:05 PM »
I understand everyone reacts differently to each medication.
I have been on Lexapro for nearly a week now and I have noticed that I less interested in sex and I do have delayed ejaculation.
I may be less interested in sex because the lexapro is just making me so tired to really not be interested in anything at all.
I wanting to know if anyone who has taken Lexapro found that the sexual side effects went away?
I believe that these side effects would cause depression in themself.

This happened to me with lexapro 10mg. Created problems as you mentioned. Low sex drive, delayed ejaculation and ED. Too much trouble for me. Switched to Wellbutrin which solved the problem. Depression itself can lower the  sex drive. Sometimes it is about forcing yourself to be "in the mood" regardless. Exercise helps with that, too. We had a long period of no activity during the change in meds, which became a problem.

I do things to feel better, I don't wait to feel better to do things.

I've just switched to Wellbutrin. Hopefully it works as well without the side effect.
