This is a big problem with me and SSRIs. My sex life is very important to me, it's a very strong connection to the man I love with all my heart and I don't want to lose that. Endorphins, Oxytocin, and all that stuff is good for us.
Hi, dizzy! I lost none whatsoever, but every individual reacts differently to every medication. Just a a point of reference in post-market surveys only 7% of Lexapro users reported decreased libido and 6% reported anorgasmia.
Cross your fingers that you're in that lucky 93% because mental health IS important too.
Best wishes, Wildcat
The ability to orgasm on SSRIs depends upon the person. It appears to affect men more than women. When I was on Lexapro it just took longer to orgasm. Some cannot reach it no matter what. Why it affects some and not other is a mystery. What I am trying to say is there is no concrete answer until you start taking it.
