My boyfriend has been on 20mgs a day of Paxil for approximately 4 weeks and has not been able to ejaculate. This is obviously bothering both of us. Is anyone having this problem... will it go away or should we consider trying a new medication for him...
This is a problem with most antidepressants. The only one which may not cause this problem is Wellbutrin. This side effect of the Paxil will most likely not go away. He could discuss with his doctor the possibility of adding or switching to Wellbutrin.
How long has he been on Paxil. If longer than a couple of months he will have horrible withdrawal problems. I suggest you get with your doctor who prescribed these and ask him why he put you on this paxil instead of a better choice. Wellbtrutrin is a better choice, especially for desire. Paxil is evil drug.
