I had similar side effects on Paxil, the only one of those listed I've tried. Unfortunately, in my case, the lifting of the depression did heighten my sex drive, but it destroyed my ability to have orgasms. I did find some tricks that worked for me, so I had a few orgasms, but not with partners. Joy! The only way I could get off was masturbation. Wow, that's great for depression. I'm on Serzone now, which I haven't been on long enough to know about its effectiveness as an anti-depressant, but I have no trouble reaching orgasm. Might even be easier on it.

For what it's worth, I agree absolutely with you about the cure being worse than the disease with some of the side effects available for us. I hope that helps a little, knowing you're not alone.
