I have been on Effexor XR (currently 150 mg once daily) for about 10 weeks. I have had delayed orgasm and eventually anorgasmia, that began from the start. However I had the same problem on Paxil and Celexa and I transitioned from Celexa to Effexor XR to get rid of the sexual side effects, which it did not do. It was taking 45-60 minutes to have an orgasm, way too long, considering normal is about 3-5 minutes. My doctor has added Wellbutrin 100 mg (once daily) to the Effexor XR and it has not worked yet (at 2 weeks). You may not have the same effect, however, I have read that any drug that increases Serotonin has the potential to decrease libido and ability to orgasm. The exceptions may be Remeron, Serzone, and Desyrel. Serzone is on the black list now, due to reported liver failures. Serzone and Desyrel both increase Serotonin but also have 5HT2 rec. antagonizm. The 5HT2 receptor is the one connected to libido and orgasm.
