> Could anyone suggest the next step for me? Here's what I've tried so far:
> Zoloft 25-50mg wicked bad vertigo, no mood chg
> Prozac 10-20mg insomnia, anorgasmic, no mood chg
> Celexa 20-40mg anorgasmic, no mood change
> Celexa 40mg + Wellbutrin 300mg STILL anorgasmic, but finally some relief from depression

If I understand you correctly, the last combo. did relieve depression somewhat but still problems with anorgasmia, correct?
I had the same problems with all AD's so I tried Gabapentin as a last resort and it seems to work for me in both departments. Of course it is a mood stabilizer but it is showing some promise I understand in relieving depression when all other problems with side effects seem too obtrusive. You can read about it at Dr. Ivan Goldberg's Depression Central address:
You think you had problems with these side effects with AD's? Don't even think about TCA's.
Get thee to the nunnery? Nah....not yet anyway. As a last resort there is always augmenting with - what's that new stuff for erectile dysfunction that women are trying now too? Can't remember - probably will though after hitting the "submit" button.
Best to you,
