"I have been taking welbutrin for about a 18 months. At first my libido came flooding back as it does whenI am no longer feeling the pangs of deep depression. It eventually settled in to normal levels but my main problem is my endurance! I have always been able to go the distance more or less but these days I climax in 60 seconds every time! It doesn't matter if we just had sex 5 minutes ago....60 seconds and I spill the beans!! I am a 37 year old male so maybe time is catching up with me??? Idk..."

"Bupropion will ruin your sex life. No more sexual desires, no more full erections , if you really don't need it, don't take it. I am a a pharmacist , I hear complaints all day. Good for depression"

"I added this to my dosage of Sertraline because I was always tired and foggy and sex had become really difficult. It initially helped for these issues, but it worsened my anxiety and caused constant fluttering heart. I went ahead and tapered up to the dose the doc told me to start with, and suddenly I began developing horrible hives all over my body. It was easily the worse itching I have ever experienced. My hands and feet blew up like balloons and I couldn't walk as a result for over a week. I stopped taking the Buproprion the day after my symptoms appeared, but they also stuck around for over a week."

"36, female. I have been on Lexapro 10mg since late March '16. I'm very active... running, hiking, yoga and still managed to put on 10lbs in 6 months and the sexual side effects suck! Pdoc added Wellbutrin XL 150mg/day to try to help with SSRI induced SE. I have been on the WB for 2 days now and I could not believe that it already brought back much of my libido, as well as sensation and faster orgasm. I hope this keeps up- if so the WB/SSRI combo may save us all! Good luck! UPDATE (3 mo use): Wellbutrin XL still doing wonders for my depression. Still helps with sexual side effects from the Lexapro, but not as much as the first week mentioned above. Def helping but not eliminating. I'll still take it though b/c I def need some serotonin too"

"This is my third time on this medication for depression. I struggled with e.d. off and on. In June I started testosterone replacement therapy. It had me feeling like I felt in my early 20s. My wife couldn't keep up. I suffer from anxiety and depression, so my doctor recommended that I start Bupropion again. I believe that it causes sexual dysfunction in men. For the last month and a half, I have had no desire to have sex with my wife and I wake up with the most weakest erections possible. I'm still on testosterone replacement therapy and having suffering again with e.d. Today is November 29, 2016. I'm stopping the pill and will take my chances with depression and anxiety until I'm prescribed something different."

"I must be far off from where I should be, hormone-wise, because I've only been on this Medicine for one full day when I woke up extremely aroused. I'm not taking this for libido, but for depression. A nice side effect, although I imagine it will balance out soon."

"I love this pill! I call it the happy pill ! 32f. After the first few months of nightmares - I've become the happiest person alive. After reading all the comments. - my sex drive seems to have increased but reaching orgasms has been hard. It does gives me energy. I quit cigs. And it possibly lowered my blood pressure. I can't comment on the weight part cause I'm already chubby and love food. I've been way more nice and friendly to people too."

"I used Wellbutrin it for a month to start stopping smoking. I used it as you should use Zyban (first week one pill in the morning, then the next two months two pills a day with min. 8 hours in between, best long before evening). After 2 weeks of use I lost a lot of libido and nearly all ability to get fully erected. Now I stopped it by eating one per day for a week. Since two days I've fully stopped and am still waiting on the libido and erectability I had before that idea stopping smoking and eating Wellbutrin...."

"Have found it impossible to orgasm on this medication, and I will be in the middle of sex and suddenly loose all drive. It helps with everything else, but I'm in my prime. I miss the crazy sex I used to have."

"I've been on Prozac for just over a year now and one of the side effects for me was decreased libido (it was almost extinct before the Prozac..) and my psychiatrist thought adding this would help. I was excited because of the supposed weight loss and appetite suppression that goes along with this medication. Unfortunately it did not help me weight wise...but my libido went from 0 to 100! My husband couldn't keep up! I'd never, and I mean NEVER been that...ready to go..in my whole life. After a few weeks the effects wore down to more like a 20 so I still have that desire..just not 6 times a day (seriously...) I called it my women's Viagra lol! I also managed to quit smoking last year while on this too. Yay!"

"I am concerned, I see people claiming a side effect of Wellbutrin as an increase in sex drive and a magical increase in orgasms. There is not a single clinical trial that says it increases sex drive. It has been proven to decrease sexual ability. So I wonder who all the people posting on this site are, that claim a magical increase in not only sex drive but also multiple orgasms???? for giggles lets say it does increase multiple orgasms . That would be a very very small percentage of people, yet on this site, it is the majority of posts .....That I find to be not credible and question the validity of this site."

"After 3 weeks of being on this medication, I can say it was the best thing I could have done for my marriage. I was starting to think I was asexual, but nope. Nope I am not, it acts like lady viagra for me. I just had multiple orgasms with my husband It has also helped me control my weight and smoking, but who cares in comparison to a dozen orgasms in 24 hours!"

"Just met the most amazing man that is taking this medication to stop smoking. He's been nervous about sexual side effects as a result of using this. Good news - since getting together, even via text or Skype we discovered he doesn't need it.....just talking turns him on. Touching me will eliminate and and all need for any type of medication without doubt!! Sorry burproin but we're OK...actually fantastic"

"I'm 25 male I've been taking this med for two months now and it is getting harder and harder (or should I softer) to keep an erection. Mid sex I'll just go soft. I'm 25 and my sex drive before this was in extreme over drive. Now it's almost nothing.I think I'd rather be depressed with working parts than happy and the sex not working"

"Took the medication for a while. Worked well for depression and overall well being, but I did notice it killed my ability to get a solid erection and sex drive was reduced. This trickled into performance anxiety. Trying to figure out how to overcome that now has made things worse for me."

"I have tried several anti-depressants and this is the only one that has not taken away my libido or inability to reach orgasm. No libido can cause depression, the whole point of taking these medications. I have not mixed Bupropion with an SSRI so I can't give an opinion on the two together and how they interact on sexual issues or lack of. So for those wondering (men especially) this medication will give you energy and NOT affect your sex life negatively."

"Male 59, in excellent health no prior problems. Started taking bupropion 3 weeks ago as adjunct to citalopram. Seems to have improved my mood, but for the past 2 weeks I have not been able to achieve orgasm. Erections are fine, just now cannot get to the happy ending. I am stopping this medicine."

"I started taking this medication for depression and as a side effect found that it took away my desire for sex. I feel like I never needed it to begin with. I am happily married but now I wonder if that desire is going to return as strong as it was there before. I'm taking vitamin supplements and hope they will eventually do something. I'm wondering at this point if I am in the very few minorities who experience lack of sex drive as a side effect."

Wellbutrin (bupropion): "I was put on 150 mg of Wellbutrin twice a day. It has completely helped my depression and amped up my sex life. Things could not be better. Our sex life has always been amazing but without the depression in the way its even better."
