"I have been on anti-depressants/ anxiety medications for the last year now and have been on 3-4 (Lexapro, Celexa, Trintellix and Wellbutrin) to try to find one that doesn't give me sexual side effects. Lexapro made me feel the best but has the worst sexual side effects. Wellbutrin was my last hope and sadly it hasn't worked for me at all!! I see so many posts on here that says it is magical, which is great for many of you but so hard to believe. I still want to have sex but can't reach an orgasm the conventional way. I have lost all sexual sensation and that is so depressing because I never had issues in the past. Like another person remarked I would rather deal with my anxiety than deal with these side effects!"

"Was on Lexapro, first 10mg, then up to 20 after two weeks. It worked for the anxiety component, but my depression spiralled out of control to the point that I was starting to have suicidal thoughts, and had missed work because I was in a very very dark place. Also, I had almost no sexual function at all. I had no drive, no desire, I was functional but had very little sensation and it was almost impossible to get to the finish line. My doctor stopped the lexapro and started me on Bupropion XL 150. After a week on that I am like a 15 year old again in the sex drive department! My libido is through the roof all the time, and I have wonderful sensation and I am VERY VERY VERY happy about that! Time will tell, but this is a solid 10, or 11. Yay."

"This medication triggered a panic attack 2 hours after taking it. I suffer from panic disorder but it is well controlled with medications. This medication felt like it nullified my other medications and I had a panic attack the likes of which I haven't seen in months. I finally was able to cobble together a medication cocktail that calmed me down, it made me sleep but I would rather sleep than be in a panic attack. I would totally NOT recommend this if you have anxiety or panic issues."

"I am a 35 year old woman, and I've always had a pretty healthy sex drive...but this is insane. I have been on this drug for three days and I can orgasm at the drop of a hat. Best day ever."

I'm the owner of, with my family, major chain of pharmacies here in my homeland 600 employees!! So you can imagine the stress I being all this time. But this wellbutrim has worked miracles !! Thank you buprobion!! I'm in the 7 month taking this wonderful pill!!!"

"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"
