Remeron works well for me. With 75mg of Effexor I had a very delayed orgasm, 150mg was no orgasm. Added just 15mg of Remeron for sleep & my orgasm returned to normal. I am at 225mg of Effexor & 30mg of Remeron & I am very happy. I just need to get on top of my lack of drive & motivation problem which is only marginally improved.

Wellbutrin also seems like a popular choice to go with SSRI's. I'd like to try it, but can't get it here.

I saw recently on this board a female using a drug(name escapes me) that was a 5-HT1 antagonist that could be used PRN for anorgasmia. It's side effects was short term depression.
