you'd have to ask a doctor about that - even if someone has used viagra to overcome sexual dysfunction, that doesn't mean it's going to be safe for your partner. i hope you can get help with this, hugs, Judith xxx

i'm surprised to hear that citalopram enhanced your partner's sex drive. in my expereience psychiatric drugs are all castrating, though i thought i'd heard that Mirtazapine was one of the antidepressants least likely to impair sexual functioning, I've not taken it, but my understanding is that Viagra doesn't increase libido but treats erectile dysfunction - there's a subtle difference. maybe testosterone injections like Robbie Williams supposedly takes might work, but whether they would counteract the effects of a drug that reduces you to having the sex drive of a giant panda, i don't know. you'd hope that having sex would in itself improve your partner's mood, as exercise is supposed to do. i'm single, but i hope if i had a willing/loving partner then it'would perk me up.

If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of payments.

Be careful if you ask a dr about viagra or other drugs, I am on 225mg of venlafaxine and 3mg of risperidone daily, haven`t had feelings below the belt shall we say for nigh on 4 months, yes I am male, married and before these drugs stripped me of my masculinity I was very active and willing.

Saw the dr and explained that the tablets had effectively chemically castrated me and I needed help, she advised that as it was the tablets NOT an medical problem so to speak that I would have to pay for these booster pills myself, and as it was a private prescription it would be a lot more expensive than the usual state charge. Plus the added downer I would have to ask the pharmacist if they carry the pills and if they do private prescriptions, I am not usually bashfull in asking for most things but just the thought of standing in a crowded boots whispering to someone made my blood run cold.

As one of my `symptoms` of my MI is no self worth, this has just gone and reinforced this to the max. My wife is wonderful about it, but there is that damn voice at the back of your mind that keeps planting seeds of doubt about the stability of the relationship etc. It is hard to explain to others esp females that with this feeling gone we do not feel like a man, it is not as if we are rampant animals normally, but you do not feel whole, I would imagine how a poor woman would feel after a mastectomy.

So after all that my advice would be if you really needed to see the dr for this, DON`T say it is the meds that are doing this to you. But then again I don`t know if there would need to be tests to prove he had a medical issue, so I don`t know really..... :(

When it comes to the medications you are taking, make sure that you are buying from a trusted pharmacy. Mirtazapine may have side effects such as impotence. You can consult to your doctor if there is an alternate medicine you can take because you are not comfortable with its side effects. It may also be asked from your doctor if you can take drugs to battle impotence such as Viagra and Cialis. These medications can be bought from treated(dot)com, where branded medications are available at a more affordable price. You don't have to worry about getting your medications late because they deliver it within 24 hours. Don't worry because this online pharmacy is trusted by many here in the UK. Take care of your health, be careful of the medications you take.

You do have to ask a doctor about things like this. I don’t think anyone will give you the right answer unless he’s a specialist and can examine your husband and find some individual factors that may cause the problem. I’ve also heard that antidepressants affect erectile function negatively, but have never experienced the issue myself. On the other hand, my husband’s doctor did recommend him to take Viagra because of his erectile dysfunction about a year ago because of stressful job and a slight depression. He suggested that we should try this one: and I wonder if anyone tried it too. My husband has never taken any pills like these ones and has certain doubts. Do they really help?

Yes, I think Antidepressant may lead to sexual dysfunction. But it is not necessary to happen in every individual. But even if sexual dysfunction happens then it is easily curable with the help of some medications like kamagra ( for Men's use only ). Still Doctors advise is recommended.

Every Antidepressant I used lead to sexual disfunction. It's tricky but you can manage it.

I haven't had an erection for 2.5 years except while asleep but I don't give a shit because I'm in jail and its probably a good thing.

When I am back in the real world I will order kamagra over the net. its Indian Viagra and cheap and good and effective. you only need to be careful if you have high blood pressure, but then those tabs can cause sexual disjunction too. what the hell. just take the stuff

I know for sure that when I had problems with sexual dysfunction, I bought Viagra. Do not soothe yourself with the thought that this is medicine, this is an adjuvant that helped me feel like a man. I also took medications, but Viagra helped me a lot. I advise you to [URL removed by moderators] for you until you find the cause of your disease.
