Effexor problems, please help

Morning peeps,

My GP just prescribed me Effexor as a substitute for the elavil i have been on for 10 years.
He prescribed this for depression and concentration problems.

I started this medication 3 days ago and already on my first day, i had problems in bed.
My wife and i thought we will give it a couple days and tried last night and my drive is even worse.

I am freaked out here. My wife and I have had a fantastic sex life for over 5 years and then all of a sudden this......I dont know if should stop taking this pill.

Any advice would be much appreciated,

Yes, it's a very common side effect. Ask the doc to change you to Wellbutrin. Many say it's better in that department.

Be sure not to just stop taking Effexor. Talk to your doctor how to switch over to something else.
