Countering the sexual side effects of antidepressants?

I've been on Cymbalta for about 3 months now as well as a few other medications on and off that come with sexual side effects. I don't have a problem becoming erect or anything but it seems to take FOREVER for me to get to orgasm.

Is there anything I can do to counter these negative effects of cymbalta besides not taking it anymore? Are there other drugs I can take with the cymbalta?

I experienced almost the same thing, except I had no sex drive due to my prescribed medication. My doctor put me on Wellbutrin to counteract the effects of the other medication. Wellbutrin is supposed to enhance the sex drive.

Question Re: Countering the sexual side effects of antidepressants?

Same here, only it gets better sometimes and then reoccurs. So, hopefully my Doctor will consider the Wellbutrin XL. Thanks!!! But my REAL concern is a male-related one, does this have a negative effect or any on the prostate?
