Antidepressants - which of them don't have sexual side effects?
« on: January 06, 2019, 02:25:14 PM »

Just out of curiosity... What are the best antidepressant drugs for people who're already suffering from (organic) erectile dysfunction and/or peyronie's?

It appears to me that there are some that don't have sexual side effects at all. Is this actually true?

If anybody can speak from personal experience and can name some of these, it would be greatly appreciated.

Been on  at least half a dozen or more over the past three or four years, and for me Cymbalta was by far the worst. Literally could go for an hour or more and not orgasm; sometimes I never would  and just give up. Switched to Welbutrin and totally different story, fixed the problem...  till this effing Peyronies Disease came along  😟

Wellbutrin is known for fewer sexual side-effects

The problem with wellbrutin is its known to cause hypertension.  So older guys have to be careful

5 Rounds of Xiaflex. Good results.

I am known to give out false information and post nonsense with little to no evidence to back up my claims.
I have ignored several warnings. Further reports to the moderators or Administrators and I will be banned.

@Nitrometer: are you still on wellbutrin now or something else? If so, have you been noticing any impact on your peyronie?

Hi guys. There is a fairly new med which is known to NOT have sexual side effects.......
I was told about Trintellix by my Euro ( my shrink actually never heard of it )........
If you keep the dose low ( it comes in 5 - 10- and 20 mg ) you shouldn't have a problem.......
I take 10 mg per day and I will say that it has changed my life.......
The big drawback is that it is quite expensive......but you would expect that since they have something no one else does........
My insurance covers it but at the highest copay........Check it out......    TRINTELLIX.......

Def work w your doc and tell them your concerns re sexual side effects.  Drugs have different effects w different people.  Overall, Wellbutrin has fewer sexual side effects.  Don’t worry about other possible side effects like blood pressure...you and your doctor will monitor it.

@werther:  I am still on Welbutrin, yes. But as Peyronies has progressed in my case, I have reached the point where it's virtually impossible to achieve an erection anywhere near strong enough for sex (on top of the bend and curve effect), so the reduce sexual side effect benefits of Welbutrin are pretty much lost on me at this point.
