My doctor gave me another option he said since taking paxil takes my sex drive away , sometimes taking wellburtin with the paxil will reverse the sexual side effects . Has anyone ever taken this ??

Yes, I have had this happen and my doctor said that it might. I was on Cymbalta for many years with sexual dysfunction as a side effect. My doctor put me on Welbutrin with it and this problem subsided. My doctor said that Welbutrin is sometimes prescibed for this problem. I recently switched to a different antidepressant than the Cymbalta and am hoping I can avoid taking the Welbutrin, but so far my sex drive has been nill, so I may be trying the addition of Welbutrin again soon.
Hope this works for you and keep us posted,
