What dose of Wellbutrin improved your sexual side effects?


Recommended Posts

In particular I was wondering does 150mg ever do it for anybody?  Or am I going to have to try 300mg?  I'm not too keen on that b/c I seem to be one of those people they warn about on the black box warnings...I usually plunge into depression when starting a new AD or when my dose is raised.

And how long should I give the 150 before I think of moving up?

It all depends on what you're taking.  When I took prozac I only need 150mg and it counteracted the s/e very quickly.  Now that I'm taking Cymbalta 150 didn't work.  I had to bump up to 300mg.  I can now orgasm but it take alot longer but in the end its worth it b/c its the best O ever.  ;)   I'd give it at least a month before you decide if you need a higher dose.

I'm on 400mg Wellbutrin (well the generic one cuz my insurance is cheap that way) and a mood stabilizer (Topamax).  My desire still goes up and down depending on what part of my monthy cycle I'm at...but the Os....oh the O's!  My husband thinks he's Superman!  It took a few weeks when I started (at 300 mg) though for that effect to take effect.  I was never on 150 mg..so I can't really say if that will cause the same effects sexually.

Is it WB's stimulating effect that counteracts sexual side-effects?

I'm on a comb of zyprexa (for anxiety) and effexor, which has left me with zero sexual desire. I tried 150mg of WB which increased my anxiety, so I had to stop it  ;)
