I was on Paxil before starting Bupropion (which I literally just started) and I am really concerned about this. Paxil effected my performance so bad it made me feel even worse all together
Will the Bupropion SR effect my sex drive or performance?

I realize everyone is different, I guess I'd like to know if anyone else has had this problem with Bupropion SR

i started bupropion a year ago. my sexual side effects were, i thougt bad until i got put on paxil. i took it for 3 days. it turned me into a flaccid zombie with absolutely no desire for sex. that scared me bad. i went thru a death in the family and felt no sadness. Sure , it made me happy and motivated me, was like no other med i ever took. i read testimonials with people stating they got hooked on it and when they got taken off of it, they went thru withdraw. However the bupropion is nothing like the paxil. it varies person to person. follow up on taking it. ive bn on it a year now, everyday 300mg once a day. it may help you.

The manufacture does NOT state that this drug will effect your performance or sex drive. So that basically means that it won't. If it does I would contact the FDA and tell them about it because it's not one of the listed side effects that I could find. I hope this helps! Good Luck!
