Hello NB 123456,

Loss of sex drive is a known side effect of antidepressants. Wellbutrin is one of the antidepressants that causes least affection of sex drive.

If the lack of sex drive has been persistent for more than a few week, you need to consult your doctor for modification of prescription. The treatment may include--

  • wait & watch ( as in many cases the sexual side effects improve over time) or
  • reducing dose of drugsor
  • replacing with antidepressants with less sexual side effects like selgiline patch, nefazodone, mirtazapine or adding certain drugs like buspirone or cyproheptadine or
  • a drug holiday approach or
  • adding ginkgo extract to the presciption
Please note that you should not modify your drg intake without consulting a doctor.
