I am aware about Lexapro variety sexual side effects. The question is. How long does it take to recuperate after treatment gradually has been ceased?

Hello to everybody!. Thanks for those replies for my posted questions. Unfortunately i am still looking for an answer. So i decided to clarify the question. It is known that Lexapro like any other SSRI medication have sexual side effects which as it has been reported may last for month or even years. I am trying to find either those side effects reversible or Lexapro side effects can cause permanent damage?
Yes, many antidepressants including Lexapro have sexual side effects such as decreased libido. It is unfortunate but it is a fact of these medicaitons. Sometimes doctors will prescribe Wellbutrin to counteract this side effect but can't really say that it works, might for you.
Decreased sexual desire or ability are listed as possible common side effects.-
Painful erection is listed as a severe possible side effect, if one were to experience it, one must seek medical attention ASAP.-
