This actually seemed to work well, cleared the anxiety and depression right up. I eventually tapere
I was taking sertraline at a young age. I had delayed ejaculation, but it felt really good when "the dice rolled" if you know what i mean. Somehow a couple months later i developed a tolerance to the delayed ejaculation and around this time i would ejaculate without experiencing pleasure. Off meds for about 2 years and i still have this issue. Funny thing: about 2 days after restarting sertraline a year later, my problem temporarily went away but then came back again the next day!
