Fluoxetine helped nicely with my SA and even better for depression.

Maintained eye contact, had much less trouble making conversation. met a lot more people. I stopped having depressive thoughts and developed a sense of humor which I never had in my life. (not saying I was hilarious, just not uptight anymore)

It did not blunt any emotions for me.

However, on the downside...I had diarrhea, insomnia and lack of being able to sleep peacefully for the first few weeks/months.

Sexual dysfunction was the only persisting side effect. Loss of libido, and delayed/inablility to ejaculate was annoying.
