    Have you noticed any changes in your strength since you've been taking it? Have you gained any strength?

    I was on celexa twice, which is supposed to be like lexapro's twin, only with more side affects. I guess it leveled me out. I know I didn't feel like it was a miracle or anything. I had a little nausea, and the usual sexual side effects. It is all VERY subjective.

    Well, every antidepressant I've been on has made it difficult to reach orgasm, not impossible, but it just takes longer, and it doesn't feel as good. Sex doesn't feel as good emotionally either. I lose my libido. If you've been on it for a month and haven't noticed anything, then I think you probably won't, unless you increase your dose. I get the side effects the first time I take the medication.

    Ever try Wellbutrin? It has the best side effect profile in regards to sexual side effects. There are even some semi-reliable anecdotal reports of it causing a mild boost in libido.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    I've been on the Lexapro for about 4 months. At first i found that i had a lack of sex drive and when i was ready i would have the inability to orgasm. I would get close and just lose it. Now however its easier. I have a stronger sexdrive and orgasm is on time if not a little delayed, which is no problem. Just give yourself more time. Also, it made me REALLY sleepy. Sometimes it would keep me up. Also, it would fatigue me randomly. Some days i'd be fine others i would be so physically tired.

    thats the good the bad and the ugly on lexapro
