I have been taking sertraline for one month for
acute anxiety and it helped some--but the side
effects are going to the bathroom all the time and
cannot ejaculate no matter how hard I try--is it a
smart move to get off of this drug? and is there
anything else I can do to help me--I also take 4
axnax 0.5 mil a day--what do you suggest?

I took sertraline for a little over a year. I had to switch to celexa like a week ago cause I figured out that it was the darn sertraline giving me headaches. Anyways, for a loooong time my libido was way way way down. Im only 20 and thats so strange for me lol after about 3 months it got better. Not like before but I could get off again. Also it helped with everything, concentration, anxiety and depression. Coming from someone who had 4 panic attacks a week to having about 4 in that whole year, its worth it if the side effects arent too bad.

Hi I take sertaline too 50mg daily and I have that same problem I have absolutely no libido whatsoever  I'm 20 too lol do you think it's the sertaline causing that? Because Ive been wondering why I just don't want to and my fiancé  is getting a little upset he thinks I don't love him anymore cause I don't want to be touched kissed etc..... I've been trying to work out the problem for a while and I just don't know.....  So did it help with your anxiety libido etc? What do you take now?
