Question Lexapro sexual side effects help?

Iíve been taking Lexapro for several months after switching from Trintillex. Iíve now found that the Lexapro is causing a lot of sexual side effects. Iíd taken this a couple of years or so ago and didnít remember this. How long do they last? Iíve read some of the PSSD stuff about the side effects becoming permanent, but Iím hoping thatís not the case and Iíve noticed that before if I had the issue with another one of these meds, it went away once I was off the med.

My doctor is tapering me off of it and Iíve done this with other meds like this, such as Prozac, celexa, and a couple of others. Iím worried about how long the effects will take to go away, I know some do the med holidays and that just doesnít work for me.

Is there treatment or something the doctors can give you if they take a while to go away? My doctor is away for for the next 2 weeks, and then I can ask, but Iím wondering what others that actually have taken the meds have found?

I also donít know what the next med will be because I donít remember which ones I had issues with and I may not have told my doctor about the sex issues if if I had other side effects that bothered me first before I noticed the sex stuff, so Iím wondering if anyone has med suggestions?

I normally have a high sex drive and itís troubling to see it go from that to where u am now.
