  • Anxiety medication can definately affect your body's reaction. So, too, can anxiety and depression on their own. Please talk to your doctor . . . it may be time to change meds or titrate you off of them. BTW, don't stop taking them on your own, have your doc titrate you down. Your body will need to adjust and you could go through withdrawal if it is not done slowly.

  • Yep, I'm on Paxil and it sucks but, gotta take it or I'm a crazy lady. There is a difference in sex so, I just deal w/ it but, sometimes it's hard to do.
