SSRI and add Welbutrin for libido?

I have been taking lexapro for quite some time. I don't want to go off of it b/c it truly helps me, but I have NO NO libido! Has anyone added a low dosage of welbutrin to an SSRI for help with libido?

Re: SSRI and add Welbutrin for libido?

Yes, my doctor recommends taking them together. The Welbutrin increases libido, energy, appetite, etc, which the antidipressants seem to take away, so he says they balance each other out. I tried Lexapro and Welbutrin but they did not help with my depression so did not stick with them. I'm on cymbalta now and think he wlil add welbutrin tomorrow when I go...

Good luck finding something that works...
