> Doesn't seem to matter with me, anorgasmia started on that low dose and now I am still only on 5mg. My pdoc has tried giving me Viagra (I am female) and yohimbine, both failures. He also feels that perhaps the Concerta I take will balance the effect and as I have come to the 36mg dose, things have gotten slightly better but still not what they should be, which means almost, but not quite. If you get any better answers, I will be reading this to get some hints because this is truly ruining for me the positive mood response I am having with Abilify.

Not familiar with Abilify, and my anorgasmia came from other drugs (and "natural" aging??? ), but I also have tried Viagra and yohimbine - Viagra actually made my anorgasmia worse, and yohimbine did the same and had too many side effects (principally extreme anxiety). I am male, and of course we're all different, but the similarities between the sexes in this area seem to be much greater than the differences.

My doctor prescribes DHEA to many patients for all kinds of sexual dysfunction, and it has worked well for me for both anorgasmia and lack of desire. It is only available by special Rx in Canada, but is readily available in U.S. My MD does not consider it "alternative" medicine, as some do, but just another hormone supplement with low side-effects that hasn't yet received proper medical attention - it is part of the body's suite of hormones, just as estrogen and testosterone are. It may need balancing with other hormones or other meds, especially for a woman. If you want to try it, I hope you can find an MD like mine with experience with it, as it really needs to be individually tailored.
