Question Cymbalta and Sexual Side Effects

Hello. I am curious what other peoples experience has been with Cymbalta and sexual side effects. I am an adult male in his upper 30s and has been on Cymbalta and Bupropion SR (generic Wellbutrin SR) for many years. Thankfully this and my anti-anxiety medication cocktail has worked well for me for years. Before I started my current medication regimen, it seemed like I was on almost every SSRI and SNRI you can imagine. Long story short...my body did not like the medication and experience sexual side effects which varied from med to med but included erectile dysfunction, delayed orgasm, delayed ejaculation, anorgasmia, anejaculation. Thankfully...the Cymbalta has been pretty sexually health friendly. Perhaps 3 % to 5 % of the time my body might have some issues when I want to use my sexuality, but, overall, it is way better than any of the other meds I had been on in the past. I am just curious if other people on Cymbalta find it to be sexual health friendly for themselves or not. I am especially curious what other men's experiences have been with Cymbalta and their sexual health, but, I welcome a response from everyone in the Cymbalta club...past and present takers. Good luck to all and hope to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

never tried cymbalta, but when on zoloft i could go and go with no results, on the other hand when on prozac i got harder and when i did finish it was awsome felt like a teen again...
