? Mainly sexually... I am a male and last time I was on it, Cymbalta just killed everything in that department. What were your side effects? How long did they last? Thanks!

Hi There, been on the Cymbalta/wellbutrin combo for about 5+ yrs (with a spell when I tried Au Natural). Cymbalta is known to suppress, Labido, inhibit male erections and prevent female Orgasm. The Doc added the cymbalta to my cocktail and it helped off set this a lot for the first 6 months. I was on 300 Welbutrin and 60 Cymbalta with xanax prn... I have recently increased the Welbutrin to 450 and dropped cymbalta to 40 mg and this has helped with lethargy, but labido is TBD. The big culprit for the sexual side effects is cymbalta... talk with the doc and see if cymbalta is necessary... it may be that welbutrin plus xanax on its own could replace the cymbalta... Good luck. PS DO NOT GO COLD TURKEY- the withdrawal on cymbalta is pretty horrible... even after missing one dose I get really sick...

Decreased libido (sex drive) is a most irritating s/e of all SSRI's, not so much with Wellbutrin. And, sorry to say, will last as long as you are on the med and for a bit of time after discontinuing the same. That was my experience with all of the SSRI's and SNRI's, such as Cymbalta. Mu boyfriend got some Viagra and that seemed to help out, but is rather expensive.
Best of luck,

Sorry, but here is another DIFFERENT answer, I was on welbutrin and had no no effects,I am now on Cymalta 120 mg a day and i love it, no sexuaul side effects, shakiness, etc. It also helps somewhat with my pain from Tardive Dyskinesia. I highly recommend this med! Lisa Zibuda
