> I was just prescribed Lexapro by my doctor for general stress/anxiety reduction. I was told that the sexual side effects were minimal...primarily "ejaclatory delay" (and only happens to a small precentage).... I guess if it's "delayed", it wouldn't be that big of a deal---just so it eventually happens. Also wondering if it causes any erectile dysfunction or decreased libido. I really don't want to become sexually dysfunctional in any way. Any men out there taking Lexapro (or women who are with men taking Lexapro) that can give me the lowdown? I have a VERY healthy sex life with my girlfriend and hate to see it take a turn just because I'm taking an anti-anxiety drug. Any advice/comments or feedback would be appreciated. Also, don't even know if I'm "posting" in the right place...I'm totally new to this.

I have been taking Lexapro for the past six months. There has definitely been an effect on my ability to ejaculate. As with the previous user, I too was on Effexor and that caused erectile dysfunction. That has not been the case with the Lexapro, but I often find that I am unable to achieve orgasm no matter how long I wait. I am also unable to bring myself to orgasm, so it is frustrating.
