> i'm at my wit's end. i used to be on zoloft for depression/obsessive rumination but it didn't help. i switched to prozac, which helped but ruined my sex drive. tried adding wellbutrin, no effect. switched to paxil then paxil and effexor. paxil alone didn't help and i found it too cumbersome to take the effexor three times a day. i have heard good things about celexa, anecdotally. but is it really supposed to be an improvement over the others as far as sexual dysfunction goes? or is that just what the drug companies say? if that's no different, i'm thinking about just switching to the wellbutrin even though that isn't necessarily supposed to help the obsessive thinking. wondering what the side effects are for wellbutrin?

I've been on celexa for a little over a month. It's the first AD I've been on. I was very tired and noticed some small decrease in my sex drive for the first couple of weeks or so.
Almost all the side effects have passed, except for some compulsive yawning for a couple of hours after I've taken it.
I do still have delay in orgasm, but that really hasn't been a problem -- I imagine it would be more troublesome in a woman. My drive
is back where it was before I took the drug. I don't have any experience with any other AD's but I'd recommend Celexa based on my experience with it. I do know that Wellbutrin reduces any addition to tobacco.
