Lousiana Sportsman:

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, it's annoying. And it is bizarre how some people get side effects on these meds, and some people have, basically, none. Possibly, there is something unique occurring on a very individualized level with all of our receptors, brains, or there is something beyond receptors and simple brain chemistry involved in our symptoms. Otherwise, we could all take the same drug and have the same results.

Brintellix is having a similar anorgasmic effect as Effexor, but what's even stronger than Effexor is a complete dampening of sexual desire and orgasmic pleasure. It's interesting, to say the least. And, since my desire is dampened (and my sex life with my wife has been off for so long), the anorgasmia does not really bother me. It's also interesting that the antidepressant/anti-anxiety effect is not strong enough (yet? I hope!). I feel better, but only marginally so (but it's better than nothing, and better than the last several SSRI trials I've failed). So, at least it's something. Great that it's working so well for you, though.

Chris
