CAM!!! I need help...Effexor XR causing sexual dys

Posted by DebbieLynn on May 28, 2001, at 10:18:18

Cam...You seem to know a lot about AD's...I have been on Effexor XR at 225mg for about 5-6 weeks now. I did slowly (very slowly get to this mg, starting at 37.5 mg) I am unable to achieve orgasm...and lately unable to even get aroused. This is SOOOOO frustrating. Would a low dose of Wellbutrin be helpful?? I have been on Wellbutrin before. 75mg 2x a day of the IR tabs. It was very unsuccessful, because I had switched from Effexor XR 150mg directly to Wellbutrin. BOY.....I will NEVER do that again. My GP advised me to do that. I now see a pdoc...who is absolutely wonderful. I have told him about the low libido, but not anorgasma. Please help....any advise or opinion you may have would be helpful.

Also I posted something a few days ago about photosensitivity. It is not in drug information...but do you know if effexor xr can cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight??? Any info on effexor would be appreciated. The withdrawal issue about this med SCARES me. I am doing great on this med and have no intention of stopping it, but I am sure there will be a time that I will come off of it. I wish the doctor would have told me about these withdrawal symptoms BEFORE I started taking it!

Sorry to ramble........... -- Debbie
