1. If you can get your doc to cooperate, 5mg to 10mg of ritalin an hour or two before anticipated sex will do the trick.
2. Drug holidays didn't help at all for me. Effexor does have a short halflife though, so it would be easy to try.
3. All the drugs you mention are used, but their success is spotty I think. The most popular remedy is the one you already have...wellbutrin.
4. There is an herb at WalMart called ExSativa that has helped me a lot. I also take 240mg gingko a day. The two have really helped my sex life a lot, with benefits becoming obvious after about 2 or 3 weeks. I've tried yohimbe, but it has some uncomfortable side effects (irritibility, total insomnia, racing heart).
