I've been taking Cymbalta for 2.5 years and it has that effect on me too. The Dr. said that the newer the antidepressant, the less side effects. I took Buprpion for anxiety on it's own for 3 years and had no sexual side effect but I was super anxious and could barely sit still. It was not that helpful for anxiety and I could not tolerate buspirone. Did you find that Brintillex increased your anxiety at all or caused insomnia? That is what I'm worried about

2 weeks into it I noticed I could no longer have an orgasm so I gave it another couple of weeks I read the detailed patient prescribing info about patient surveys and 23 percent of females at 10 mg had sexual problems What good is sex without an orgasm No thanks I will stick to bupropion and buspirone (for anxiety) Guess I'm not in that bad of shape after all I'm not willing to give up sex yet
