first off I want to say I have been depressed and having anxiety issues bad for about a year now, but pretty much all my life. I am on wellbutrin xl 300mgs, buspirone 10 mgs, and now taking cymbalta 30 mgs
I will mention that I was on lexapro, horrible cause it made it where i could not orgasm... AT ALL.. and I was on it for maybe 5 months.. came off it.. tried prozac.. same thing... come off of it.. i can orgasm again.. but my depression is still bad.. so i thought cymbalta was different and not an ssri or whatever but its an ssnrii? or whatever, not important, the important thing is i have been on it for 1 wk and within 2 days of taking it i could not have an orgasm.. im 40 years old... i dont understand if someone is depressed and anxious why give them something that makes them not be able to have an orgasm? and the fact I told my dr this and now im on pretty much the same kind of meds that kept me from it in the first place.
I think its messing with my prostate cause I can barely pee as well.. i can have to pee sooooo bad but it takes me 45 seconds to start, and when i do i have no control of how hard i pee.. why would these meds mess with my prostate? and if thats the case should i stop taking it? i have heard the nightmares about how bad it is to come off cymbalta and being on it only for a week will it be that bad? i guess im just lookiing for advice.. im stopping them tomorrow
also will mention that my thyroid is low so im taking levothyroxine as well. and vitamin D cause it was low.. been on those for months now..
