Didn't mean to imply increasing SE.
I was trying to say that since Effexor is an SNRI which effects Norepinephrine in addition to Serotonin (and also effects Dopamine at high doses), and Wellbutrin acts on Dopamine and Norepinephrine, that I wondered if Soonerbaby really needed that much Norepinephrine reuptake.
I was implying that switching from the Wellbutrin to Selegiline (which while it's inconvenient to take, has actions similar to Wellbutrin but is better for sex drive/orgasm) might benefit Soonerbaby. I don't think guys need to take Selegiline or they may end up being 5 minute buzzkills :)
The FXR to a pure SSRI switch was kinda tangential to the anorgasmia. BUT - FXR is notorious for slowing/stopping orgasm. Great for guys, but not females. I've just noted through the years that a lot of Docs - especially when one's not dealing with a Psych Doc but a Med Doc - give out or prescribe psych meds in combinations that often make no sense. Again, didn't know if Soonerbaby really needed that much NE(?).
I've even known people to get dangerous med combos etc. from Med Docs.
Regardless, I want folks to consult their Doc and/or do research before doing what I mention.
We're as different neurologically as we are physically. Different needs for different people.
Jes trying to help. While I'm not a newbie to psych meds and other neurologically active substances, I am new here and I don't get the SE, DA, and NE lingo. I'm guessing SE is Serotonin, DA is Dopamine, and NE is Norepinephrine.
Hope this made sense.
