Yes, except for the Symmetrel. Zoloft+Buspar is viewed by one doctor in Dr Bob's Pharmacology Tips as being "magical". For me it was incredibly stimulating. Too much so. Racing heart, total insomnia, panic. But that doctor must have had good results to describe it as magical. I believe this combo is pretty common. Any SSRI+Buspar 'theoretically' should provide a better response. Whether it actually does varies from person to person. Same with its potential to combat sexual dysfunction. Some find it helpful, others not.

Zoloft+Wellbutrin is also common. Adding Wellbutrin to just about anything is common. Usually added for pep, increased response, or in an effort to combat sexual dsyfunction, or to combat weight gain. Different doctors claim different results. As with anything else, ya never know till ya try. It was at one time almost marketed as a sexual stimulant. I have to admit I had wonderful sex with it. But the severe tinnitus I got from it was too much to deal with. It may or may not overcome the sexual dysfunction of an SSRI. It varies, but is a common strategy.

All I know about Symmetrel is it is often added to any AD to augment for a better response. Sometimes even when the thyroid levels are already in the normal range. I have not heard of it being used to combat sexual dysfunction.

More often than not a trial of a different AD turns out to be what works. I hope Racer will answer your post, because she has experience on this subject and she has a cure that works for her. Racer, you're up next. Take it away Racer. . .
