Re: ativan and buspar, sexual numbness, so frustrated help
Hi Daphne, i found your post inadvertenly in an internet search.. not sure if you're still monitoring this but I have heard that wellbutrin XL causes both men and women's sexual drive to skyrocket, it also increases the forcefullness of your orgasms in many cases.
I am a male, and it really helped me while curing my depression and also gave me a nice increase in sexual drive. assuming you kept up with the buspar, my guess is you eventually got over the sexual numbness but wellbutrin xl + buspar are generally an excellent combo for depression / anxiety. the wellbutrin xl will cure most depression caused by dopamine issues in the brain, however it tends to make you more jittery and anxious. when you throw the buspar in, it tends to level each other out pretty darn well.
I myself am currently just taking wellbutrin XL and for sexual performance anxiety a little bit of Ativan (around 1mg sublingual for me.. everyone is different) though Ativan is nothing to mess around with if you have an addictive personality or get addicted to drugs easy.. don't ask your dr for them..
i don't have an addictive personality thankfully. I am able to take it once a few times a week as needed for either a panic attack or sexual anxiety, and works pretty good with very little risk of ever becoming addicted because I dont' use it anywhere enough.
