I don't understand why people need anti depressants anyway. Who wants to kill off their emotions? That's what makes us human. I could understand if a sudden catastrophe happened to you but that's what the grieving process is there for, not to pop a bunch of emotion numbing pills. That's just me though, and I'm sure others think differently.

87- because some have a big imbalance of said chemicals, or have malfunctioning chemical glands, thus making them feel depressed. It's not always as simple as cheering up, but can often be a medical, empirical issue, and not a subjective thought-problem.

So this medicine is anti-depressant as well as birth control/condom? Sounds pretty damn good considering (Exscuse my vulgarity that is going to ensue) you can have sex; which feels good, and just not be able to orgasm.

@95: If you're replying to me: I was implying that if OP is male, that would mean no ejaculation. And if the OP was female it would mean she could not get pregnant.

Please do the human race a favor and get a vasectomy. If you're honestly so ignorant as to believe a woman can't get pregnant unless she orgasms, you have no business having sex.

87- Antidepressants do not numb your emotions... They release serotonin into your blood stream. This makes said person feel 'normal' if they have a chemical imbalance in their brain and a bit perkier if they are balances chemically but not emotionally.

Yeah there are always a lot of generics out there you can switch to, usually in case someone's allergic to one kind. This way you won't be depressed and you'll be able to orgasm ;)

I have the same problems, basically the whole class of drugs I need for anti depression and anti anxiety have a possibility of sexual side effects, Wellbutrin is one that has a rep for both not having sexual disfunction side effects. My husband took it as a teenager and he said it actually way increased his sex drive. I've been doing the drug shuffle myself to try to find something that works for me. Celexa murdered my libido hard and made it so I couldn't finish no matter how hard my husband and I tried. When I went off it I also realized it had stunted all my range of emotion. Effexor xr made the sex part a bit better but made me more than a little psycho and short tempered and supper depressed (also even weirder side effects). Paxil made my libido go back down again, and made me short tempered... So here's to hoping Zoloft will do it for me.

I'm on Effexor right now, and I have a hard time (no pun intended) even....ahhhh....getting hard, let alone not orgasming! I've tried Zoloft...same deal! I was on Wellbutrin and to put it mildly....it made me so upset and super angry that I wanted to kill anyone who came with 12 feet of me and accidentally breathed hard! So I couldn't stay on that one too long. And although Effexor is keeping me and my depression at bay for the time being I guess I have to put up with the rest...but in general, Anti depressants suck big time in the "messing with your sexual function" department and there isn't much anyone can do, because your head doc is treating your mood and not the frequency of your orgasms!!

Also remember OP, medications work differently for different people. What may not work for our fellow FMLers may just as well work for you. Talk to your doctor about the right medications for you. Bring up some issues you've heard about certain ones and I'm sure they'll be able to work something out for you.

Antidepressants have odd side effects all around... But they usually don't stay. Once your body gets used to it, most side effects SHOULD go away.

They build up in your system...so stopping it the day you want to blow your load is not going to work! But at least you gave finding a solution your best try! Better luck next time!

It IS affecting OP, in case you didn't read the whole FML

21. OP never stated that it was affecting her. The FML said she looked them up and that was one of them. It seems to me that in the end when OP stated the choice between depression and orgasm,she may have been jumping to conclusions by assuming she would experience that particular side effect.

But would it really be an FML if she was just assuming? No, I think its safe to say that she has tested for that side effect and the tests have come back positive.
