okay today i just started 3 new meds i was off meds for like 6 months. cymbalta lorazepam and metopol, the metoprol ive not taken yet but i took a cymbalta earlier and a lorazpem.
so anyways im beatin away at my chevy chase (thats wut i call my dick) and i relize i cant ejeculate! it was terrible i finally ejaculated but i had to beat my dick like it owned me money, i swear my head almot popped off, and the orgasm was like pretty pleasureless.
is this because of cymbalta or lorazepam? how can cymbalta already give sexual side effects on the first day!!! :mad:

Hehehe, this is WAY off in TMI-land, but yeah medically its a valid question. I think most of these drugs do things to your libido and/or your orgasm.
Maybe try lexapro if you have to mess with serotonin. Or wellbutrin if you want to switch to something that works on dopamine / norepinephrine.
ultimately, Id stick with something that worked.

this is entirely TMI (dude, seriously), but my mom takes cymbalta (for depression as well as neuropathic pain), and the poor thing has had a HUGE increase in sexual desire, but she can't actually achieve an orgasm to save her life. kinda made me feel a little icky inside to have a conversation like that with my mother, but oh well, we talk about all things medical, all the time. cymbalta is evil when it comes to sex and i never ever want to try it.

Furthermore, Neurontin/Lyrica make blood flow to the penis and provide a nice feeling of a healthy hanging penis throughout the day. As soon as I took Cymbalta, there was an immediate shrivelling feeling (like 20 degree weather might cause) at all time. On the other hand, I got some fibro pain relief from Cymbalta, so I have a choice to make. Better sexual feeling and reasonably achievable orgasms or that fibro pain relief.

Cymbalta does serotonin reuptake also, doesn't it?

From my SSRI days, well... it does not get better with time. I've had my share of women literally tired of having sex before I could "ooohhh"... I was hornier than ever, I just couldn't go "oooohhh"...

One more for TMI day!! LOL

yes, cymbalta is an equal inhibitor of serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake. Guess its just me I never had much of a problem on lexapro either.

Guess I'm just a stallion!!!

yeah , since I've been taking cymbalta I have like no interest in sex at all, and it used to be a BIG part of my life,and orgasms are not happening anymore.Oh well guess it's a trade off, depression seems to be improving.

i wana warn u guys about cymbalta and drtinking, here the thing, i always had a drinking problem, but since cybmbalta, its rediculous. last weekend i consumed 2 26ers of vodka and a 24 of beer, and i stole 2 60 ouncers of wine. all was consumed. right now is friday morning. last night i drank a (entirely dif) 60 of wine, stayed up all night, still drunk at 10am i went to the liquor store, i bought a 6 pack of beer, and get this i stole 4 mickeys of vodka. so i had 60$ worth of vodka in my pockets and i boguht 7 dollars worth of beer. ive always been a theif of alcohol, ive never stolen from people, but when it comes to wal mart or 'lcbo' or any big corp, ive always stolen from them, and i dont feel guilty about it. anyways all im saying is if ur on cymbalta dont drink, because youll engage in risky behavior, i didnt tell u all the storys of the shit i did WHILE drunk in the last 3 weeks. i was just nuts in general. not mean, just crazy as in i have no 'hey, watch out, this could have a backlash' <that wasnt there, ive just been insanely not giving a fuck. and i used to get drunk and pass out, since being on cymbalta, i get drunk, binge all night, and want more still the next morning. in other words i do not stop drinking until im fucking raped. i duno wut else to say hell i dont even know wut ive said, just be careful.

OMG, please consider checking into a rehab,u r not going to have a liver left if you keep this up.The hospital I used to work at had a detox unit which was actually pretty good, they had some pretty cool people that worked there. I think most hospitals have detox units they can get you in through the ER. I hope I don't sound like I'm preaching but your story just sounded so sad and you sound like an intelligent guy that has a lot of potential.By the way, I had to stop the cymbalta anyway cause it aggrivated my migraines, I spent the past 2 days in bed with a pounding migraine, I couldn't even hold down a glass of water. I was so dehydrated and in so much pain, all I did was cry, thankfully I can function today.

unfortunately, my doc convinced me to stay on the cymbalta so I am giving it a few more days,I 'm not in a relationship right now so I probably shouldn't be thinking about playing the game anyways.

My pdoc prescribed buspar to possibly negate any sexual side effects of cymbalta (I had major issues with this on effexor and zoloft). I can still orgasm, but I have no idea if it is because of the buspar changed that or the cymbalta never caused any in the first place...I can say though, as my dose has been upped my libido has gone down.

doctorgonzo: might consider that alcohol is also interfering with sex...just a thought... :mad: "

i have the cymbalta "cruel joke" of increased libido and decreased ability to follow through. after 2 months at 90mg, it started to improve and is now a hit-or-miss kind of thing. hoping it will continue to improve. but as long as cymbalta is keeping the ocd delusions away, i'm not changing.

here's to intensive sexual experimentation with those you love! :)
