Re: Which SSRIs are the worst for sex-drive?

In reply to Which SSRIs are the worst for sex-drive?, posted by SLS on April 18, 2004, at 8:22:51

Prozac wiped out my sex drive permanently. I first started taking it in 1992. Back then, it wasn't common knowledge that SSRIs caused sexual dysfunction. I didn't make the connection for several years. When I finally figured it out, I quit Prozac but my sex drive didn't return.

In the past, I took Trazodone which didn't cause any sexual problems and worked well. I only switched because I thought Trazodone might be causing my weight gain. Turns out I had thyroid disease.

Also, I've read that Wellbutrin has a lower incidence of sexual side effects and that Paxil has been rated the worst.


> I started taking Zoloft a few months ago. I'm currently at 250mg. I have absolutely no side effects *except* the complete disappearance of my sex-drive. I am considering switching to another SSRI because of this. Which of the SSRIs is the worst for libido and which are the best?
