Wellbutrin XL and sex-drive

I'm on 150 mg of Wellbutrin XL. I JUST got put on it.
Did any of yall taking this med have a low/non-existant sex drive?

Re: Wellbutrin XL and sex-drive

Is XL the time release one?

Ive used that and the regular Welbutrin, one of the side effects can be low or no interest in sex. It wasnt for me though, I had some of the other side effects like dry mouth and with XL I would get the shakes about every 2 hours, increased heart rate but it would pass within a couple of minutes.
I think it affects people differently though, a friend had to stop taking it as she had no sex drive at all while she was on it. (regular not time release)

Re: Wellbutrin XL and sex-drive

Thats strange because Wellbutrin INCREASED my drive but I 'm not sure if it was SR. SR only means it stays with you all day and slow amounts at a time.

Re: Wellbutrin XL and sex-drive

I've been on SR for years, and it definetely increased mine as well. I suppose XL could be different though. I tried XL but I just liked SR better.
