    lexapro vs effexor & sexual side efx

    hi all
    i've been on lexapro for about a month (10 mg) and it is working well for my anxiety. however, and this has happened before on similar meds... Im having sexual side effects. My psych said after you get past 75 mg of effexor, you lessen your chances of having this side effect... and that it's better for those who suffer from these side effects. so of course, if i cant get over this - im sure some of it might be mind over matter - i might change to Effexor.
    does anyone have any thoughts or input? I'd hate to go off Lexapro for this reason only to haev it reoccur with effexor...
    thanks so much!

    I am on 150mg of effexor and 300mg of wellbutrin so they tend to cross each others side effect out. My sex drive is not as high as it was before but that is probaly due to the other pills I take and being MDD plus GAD

    take care
