Did you always have the sweating and anorgasmia, or did that get progressively worse over time? Did it get worse when the Cymbalta started pooping out?

I take Effexor XR and suffer from some sexual dysfunction as well. I've been experimenting with various herbs and formulas and am pretty happy with the results. I actually started looking into herbs because of the night sweats. I knew that was something the doctor wouldn't know how to handle, so I started googling night sweats as a symptom in Chinese medicine.

After a bit of detective work and trying a couple premade herbals formulas in the form of pills, I not only got rid of the sweating but also improved urination, which was starting to become difficult at times as well as sexual function and libido.

In terms of Chinese medicine, the sweats and the sexual difficulties point to weak kidneys, which in TCM also include the endocrine and adrenal functions.

If your problem is more of just not feeling aroused enough and/or not being able to orgasm, I'd suggest the formulas "Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan" or "You Gui Wan". Google will yield fruit. These also help feeling sluggish, tired, unable to get things moving.

If you tend to feel hot, thirsty, and have insomnia, heart palpitations, you may need something like "Liu Wei Di Huang Wan". That'll cool you off a bit and replenish your Jing, which is the Chinese version of Mojo in physical form.

Other herbs that may help with such problems:

- tribulus
- avena sativa
- maca
- tongkat ali
- ashwaghanda
- siberian (eleuthero) and asian ginseng (not so much American)
- horny goat weed
...and there a bunch more, some from Brazil that I can't remember how to spell.

I also get a more robust antidepressant response when taking them with herbs. I think if the body gets out of balance over time, poop-out will occur. Herbs can help balance out the chronic chemical influences on your body and help you to regain balance and function.
