Re: On Paxil, having sexual side effects, any advice? PLEASE?!

Libido and impotence are side effects of Paxil and other antidepressant meds. However, it doesn't have to be a death sentence. TALK with your doc and explain what is going on. There are things he can do with your meds to make it better. He may suggest viagra or something else, and then he may change your dosage or your med altogether. But don't let yourself be so frustrated that you think there's no way out. You can be on meds and still perform! Let us know what you find out. By the way, I've never dealt with the whole paxil thing, I work in the mental health field and have an understanding of meds, side effects and such.

I've gone through this too. From what I understand many of the SSRI (selective seratonin reuptake inhibitors) can cause sexual side effects.

Only think I can suggest is to try other medications. I moved on to Elavil.

Good luck, with time and patience you'll find the right meds.
