> There is an incidence of anorgasmia (inability to achieve orgasm) of about 2% in women taking Lexapro according to the recent trials, compared to less than 1% with placebo. A low incidence, but there is some risk.
These numbers are hard to believe, but then all of the reported percentages for sexual side effects seem absurdly low to me. But maybe I'm wrong. Let's ask: Is there anyone out there who has taken SSRIs for an extended period of time (2 years or more) who has NOT experienced loss of sex drive and/or difficulty with orgasm or ejaculation?
