sexual side effects

Which antidepressent has the least sexual side effects? I realize that each drug works differently for different people and I'm just wanting to hear what everyone thinks about this topic. What are your experiences?

Re: sexual side effects

Wellbutrin does have the least sexual side effects and can sometimes increase functioning as well. But Wellbutrin didn't help much with my depression so I dropped it and I'm now taking effexor. Effexor is an SNRI and had the least sexual side effects of the meds that actually helped in my battle with depression.

Re: sexual side effects

Of the SSRI's, Lexapro supposedly has a lower chance of sexual side effects than others. But that wasn't the case for me.. Wellbutrin helped counter that though.

Re: sexual side effects

I don't know if I should go back to dr. and try switching again. Was on Wellbutrin, and it didn't have any sexual side effects, but it didn't really help the depression or anxiety and I think it made me irritated. Switched to Paxil and I don't know about it either. I want to sleep all the time. Can not get up in the am and after I get my son on the bus I go back to sleep and can not make myself get up. Then of course I can't sleep at night. I don't know what to do.
