I have been taking SSRI pills for 12 years. 3 months ago I wanted to stop cause I felt good. About a 3 weeks after stopping I started to feel very restless and i had a short fuse. the only plus was I was able to reach an orgasm really fast like when i was younger and it felt great. I went back to my doctor and he said to go back on ssri . So i went back and again I had sexual problems . I decided to stop again with the pills and after 2 months i became really depressed. I told him I don't want to go back because of the sexual problems so he gave me wellbutrin to try. After 3 weeks on wellbutrin i became very restless and angry . so I stopped taking wellbutrin.
now i am stuck between trying to fight depression and wanting to have a good sexual life.
The doctor said to try to mix wellbutrin with ssri but im afraid it will not work and or make me angry again.
I know ssri works on me cause i tried 3 different pills (prozac, Escitalopram and Sertraline) and they all workd but they all made me have sexual problems. i am stuck .
SSRI works on me but can't handle the sexual side effects?
