Depression Medication

If you are taking medication for depression does that make your system take longer to ejaculate and also make it harder to gain an erection?

I've heard the former; don't know about the latter.  Look up your particular medication's website, and look up side effects.

That can be a side effect of your antidepressant, it should tell you.

Oh yes....this is an SNRI but can cause the unwanted sexual side effects like an SSRI.  

Talk with your physician if these sexual issues are disconcerting.
