Suicide?... actually doing it? No. Considering it because I have found myself with an incurable dysfunction that has already cost me one marriage and alot of relationships? Yes...often.

Wellbutrin?....ah the miracle drug for the cure
of SSRI sexual dysfunction. Raises dopemine....good. Depression....taken care of.
Sexual desire....heightened,,,,and the nightly dreams? going to the movies...full color widescreen with great storylines! Weightloss....such a great little bonus...15 lbs in 6 Effect on RE? None, but none expected.

Raises noreoinphrine (the fight or flight hormon) ...very bad. Preexisting low level anxiety is supercharged and the patient constantly feels like he is being chased through the woods by a pack of hungry wolves even though he is doing nothing more dangerous than reading the newspaper. Even at the lowest dose the anxiety and panic attacks are debilitating.

The irony is the irony..... a cruel cosmic joke.

But the patient rfuses to give up and considers
the following:

Wellbutrin SR
Clonazepam to take the edge off the heavy
anxiety attacks that occur a few times a week.
Low level anxiety now heightened?...get used to it.

And the sexual dysfunction? Well that's a whole other story.
