SSRI Sexual Sides and Dosage

When I took Paxil, it left me unable to ejaculate, reason enough for me to STOP immediately!

So I was put on 20 mg of generic Celexa and thankfully didn't experience any sexual sides. In fact, the only side effect I've had is minor insomnia that has gradually been getting better. Now the doctor has suggested I increase my dosage to 40 mg. Is there a good chance this increase in dose would give me sexual sides that 20 mg didn't?

Any antidotes?

There probably won't be too much difference. Celexa don't make me lose the ability to orgasm, but it decreases libido, which is a little annoying. I'm depressed already, I don't need any more things to be depressed about!

I actually take horny goat weed (supplement they sell at most pharmacy stores). I guess it helps a little. You could probably get prescribed viagra or something like that if you complain enough, lol. I'm embarrassed to buy it but nobody really cares.

I love paxil , it takes me longer to orgasm but the ladies love me for it.

Just sucks when you're trying to masturbate.

Wellbutrin XL is a very good one, but I don't think the Celexa dose increase will cause you anorgasmia.

Mirtazapine should function as a direct "antidote" to the sexual sides.
