Sorry, we can't post where to get non-FDA meds here. If you do a google search for "buy Ixel", or "Milnacipran", you will find where to mailorder it without any problems.

Ixel blunted my sexual desire somewhat, but not to the degree ssris did. It felt like the kind of blunting that would have gone away with time. I could not stick it out. My experience with Ixel went like this:

Trial 1. Felt better almost right away, got glum and down again by day 4, progressively got a little worse for the next 2 weeks. Main reasons for stopping...could barely pee, daily headaches, minor mini-rashes and itching. It did work good on pains. Sex was ok sometimes and not interested other times.

Trial 2. Felt better almost right away, got glum and down again by day 4, progressively got a little worse after. Same as the first time. Main reasons for stopping...difficulty peeing, minor mini-rashes and itching. Peeing was a little better than the first trial, and headaches didn't happen this time. But in addition to the difficulty urinating and the deterioration in mood, something new happened...very painful testicles.

In literature one of the more common side effects leading to discontinuation in men is urinary complaints. The difficulty peeing and painful testicles scared me away.

I may still use Ixel on ocassion though. To me it is somewhat in the Ritalin family. If I take it today, it will kick in by tomorrow and feel pretty good. It "feels" like a boost of dopamine and norepinephrine similar to ritalin. But that fades in a few days. Ritalin also makes me more depressed if I take it continually, but is good for a temporary crutch.

I had high hopes for Ixel but have to give it credit because at least I was able to get a month trial out of it, whereas most other med trials are over before a week due to severe worsening of mood. Ixel was friendlier. If not for the peeing pain and the testicle pain I might have upped the dose and done more time with it.

Back on topic, it did blunt my libido some, which for me is a good thing since it is too strong to begin with, but ability was fine and climax was fine. Actually climax was better than normal.

> atmlady, where did you get your Ixel and what dosage do you take? Also what TCA's are common and don't have sexual side effects? And Men, did Ixel also not have sexual dysfunction?
