Hey,

I have noticed women seem to have a good libido boost from Wellbutrin. Is this the same for men?>

Any men on this forum experienced a libido boost from Wellbutrin? How long did it take to notice this boost? Thanks,

Hi prayforbrighterdays69 ,

It does seem that for some people Wellbutrin can boost male libido, I hope you hear from members who have found this.

Best Wishes

Although I'm not a professional or an expert, I've read that Wellbutrin seldom affects libido. If you've been depressed a return to normal can seem like a boost (and there's nothing wrong with that, of course). Still, I like to remind everyone that we all have unique responses to medications.

I hope Wellbutrin will be a help to you and that you are on the path to healing from depression!

Take care,
Aerial

Hi Jim and Ariel,

Thanks for your reply.

I have come off hormone replacement therapy, and I have had no libido (on treatment, and now off) for many months. My doctor suggested Wellbutrin, as he said it would not affect my libido, and maybe even help it.

I just haven't had any sexual desire for > 6 months. It is putting a strain on my relationship!!!!!! I can still perform, but i dont feel the "sexual feelings" in my body.

Mood is important to me, but i think the lack of libido is affecting my mood a lot. It would be a welcome benefit if I could get it back. I think my mood would be boosted a ton if I could enjoy sex again- and having sex itself, is a good mood booster.


Best,
