  • Iwas taking it and it affected my sex drive too. I wouldnt recommend taking it everyday because of the other side effects. It takes a few weeks for your body to get used to it. I told the doctor and she changed me to another anti-depressant. There is a lot of different ones out there and you may have to try a few different ones before you find the right one for you and your body. The dr. usually has samples you can try before buying it.

  • You really should take it as prescribed or it may not work properly. If you don't like the affects, ask to try a different antidepressant. There are many different kinds and it is a guessing game to see what works right for you.
