I am on Sertraline HCL 100 mg, 150/day. This drug affects sexual functions by reducing the desire.
Hi Doorgunner I have used this and it worked pretty well but to tell you the truth they really don't know why it works,From what my doctor said is many people take several antidepressaints and antianxiety drugs and they stumbled that when people taking ssri men or woman bupropion patients while on ssri..that is the class of drug sertraline is helps with different sexual side effects but most the time they use the 150mg so if it is not working ask your doctor to change it. I wish i could tell you more but this is also the way the find many other uses for drugs once they are on the market,by the patients taking the drugs example Bupropion first came out for depression, now they use it for several things like to help stop smoking,and sexual side effects for people on SSRI medications,And taking it with the sertoline also can help with the depression and in most cases very little side effect with bupropion if you are taking it at night and have trouble sleeping take it in the am if the doctor oks it that way this is a very common side effect good luck my friend hope this helps some chuck1957 medically retired pharmacy Techniecian Cpht Oregon.
