I've been taking Effexor for some years now. This is a bit of a personal question, but does anyone else have issues with having an orgasm on this medication? If so, have you found anything that helps for you to have one? Normally, I make sure I'm well hydrated before doing the deed but sometimes that doesn't help.

    I had this issue on lexapro. Maybe it’s a symptom for antidepressants in general? I read that taking ginkgo biloba supplements help with sexual issues caused by these meds.

    Unfortunately, this is one of the common long-term side effects of drugs like Effexor. I suggest consulting a psychiatrist on alternative medications if it bothers you. Good luck and keep us posted!

    I'll try the gingko Bilbao. I personally don't want to switch meds because I've gone through so many, but effexor actual helps. I'll talk with my doctor Friday and see what she suggest as well

    I noticed that the timing of taking the drug has an impact! Try to take the drug as much time as possible prior to the act (when you wake up in the morning and have sex in the late evening). If it doesn't help talk to your doctor about lowering the dose or switching to another drug.
