Re: sexual dysfunction and Paxil

In reply to sexual dysfunction and Paxil, posted by Toby on October 27, 1999, at 17:54:46

Hi Toby. My experience with helpful ideas (just MY experience) is that they can be mildly helpful but nothing to be satisfied with. As you know, mileage will vary. Of all the ideas so far, Racer has a great one. I've tried adding Wellbutrin, Remeron, Buspar, gingko, ginseng, yohimbe, and herbal formulas for libido with ingredients like L-arginine, yohimbe, muara puama, tribulus, maca root, oats...on and on...stuff touted as being good for libido.

When I was on Paxil, and later Zoloft, then Celexa, I found they were just too powerful in a negative sexual way to overcome. In my opinion, I think Paxil is the worst of the bunch for sex and Zoloft is a close second. I am still amazed Prozac doesn't give me any problems. My small dose of Remeron, which blocks certain receptors associated with sex, might be a factor. Don't know. Maybe. Doesn't make sense to me, but I'm not complaining! Anyway, of all the strategies I've tried, I think Wellbutrin and Yohimbe (health store) were the two more helpful than anything else. But with an anxiety component to your situation, both would be questionable choices. And besides, they were nothing to applaud about.

If the problem continues to be troublesome, I am intrigued with Racer's idea as a first choice. You could try the other stuff too, but I think a switch to something like Serzone would make sense. Similar to an SSRI, good for sex, good for anxiety.
