How does the sexual side effects last.
DJD; Sorry this is a tough one all of us are different, But it is still worth getting on with the meds these aren't as bad as some. But if you do have any problems let the doctor know they understand and there are several medications that will help this condition. But it happens to different to everyone and some no problems at all. good luck but it is worth it.
I was on Zyprexa (Olanzapine) and Prozac (Fluoxetine), and in my case it did affect my sex life, but as we always say: "we are unique and react to medications differently ( benefits, potential side effects, possible interactions etc)."
But I must say I was mentally balanced, stable, one thing for another, at the time I took this combo I was 34 y/o, and it really helped me get through a nasty depression, but again they do affect your libido.
In my case the lack of libido lasted as long as I took these meds.
