Lexapro Q for MEN

Has anybody had the ejaculation side effect taking lexapro? I am about to start taking it and I really dont like the sound of that it could effect my ejaculation. Anybody got any experiences?

Re: Lexapro Q for MEN

My bf is on Lexapro and sometimes has a very hard time ejaculating. It can be frustrating for him sometime. I really don't know what kind of advice to give you but I hope you don't have to suffer this side effect.

Thanks for the replys, I hope I dont have this side effect. How long has your bf been taking Lexapro?

He's been back on it since mid-July (20mg/day). He still has moments of anxiety but the medication has been a great improvement for him. Sometimes if the anxiety gets bad, he'll take Xanax with it.

Re: Lexapro Q for MEN

I have been on 40 mg of Lexapro since June and I do seem to have a more difficult time ejaculating. I can stay hard but sometimes just can't ejaculate , and it definitely can be frustrating.

Re: Lexapro Q for MEN

I have been on it for overa week now and I notice mine are kind of weak. Do yours seem sort of weak?

Re: Lexapro Q for MEN

I haven't noticed anything regarding potency, just delayed ejaculation and sometimes anorgasma, which is an inability to ejaculate.

I just saw my shrink today and told her about this. She has put me on 150 mg a day of Wellbutrin XL, in addition to keeping me on the 40 mg of Lexapro.
