SSRI anti-depressant induced sexual dysfunction
I'm feeling very frustrated by the side effects of SSRI's. I have not lost my desire far from it, but I have lost all sexual arousal. I feel as if all my sexual nerve endings are numb and that I'm like a piece of dead meat. My partner is extremely supportive and understanding but I don't want to lie there unresponsive yet I don't want to fake sexual pleasure. Neither feel respectful of me or my partner.
My psychiatrist is keen for me to try Viagra but cannot prescribe it and is at a loss as to how/where to refer me to someone who can.
I would be so grateful for any advice, ideas and support. There must be something I can do.
