46, Bupropion only made things better.

Give it time to work as it should.
To the poster that quit it for a few days. NOPE, it takes weeks to fully purge it from your system (as personally evidenced by extreme RLS VIA dopamine crash)

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

I know that I am bringing up an ancient post however I found this via google and need all the help I can possibly get.

Up to this point everyone has been talking about 150mg Wellbutrin however my story is somewhat different.

I am on 450mg wellbutrin. I have been on my meds for +/- 18 months however this was never an issue because I wasnt married and I needed to get over a few other problems before I started dating or became sexually active. I am now dating and suddenly where I would go all in, I was finding I am making an excuse as to why we can't.

I got tired of making excuses and wanted to see if it was my meds, I stopped taking them (My doc and family would kill me if they knew this) for about 6 weeks. During these 6 weeks, all the problems seemed to disappear!! Where I was getting a normal erection, I am not getting half way (after alot of stimulation) and then suddenly even thats gone.

I've been back on the wellbutrin for about 2 weeks. The only reason I started using them again is because I can feel a huge difference. I dont think my Doc will take me off them either, I do ask for more meds to take?

I just can't live like this, I am 28 and there is no way in hell this can become my expected future.

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

That is quite the idiosyncratic reaction to bupropion, especially given the fact it is often prescribed in part for its pro-sexual function in most individuals at clinical dosages as part of therapeutic treatment.

All other things being equal, perhaps it is time to trial Cialis, Levitra, and/or Viagra.

That said, the fact you chose to make an excuse as opposed to being honest about the situation may be indicative of an overall approach and state of mind which does not facilitate healthy sexual function.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

My name is James and i have been suffering from weak erection and premature ejaculation for a few years now, I must admit that i have taken so many drugs just to see me free from it. At a point i begin to blame myself because i masturbated a lot during my youth age and i think that was the origin of my problem. I did series of test just to know what my problem really was and i also undergo a lot of treatment until i was introduced to a man called Mark by a friend of mine who was cured from the same problem by Dr Nick, I then contacted the doctor and after the treatment and prescriptions i was cured and restored, I will forever be grateful to this Doctor because he have changed my life for the better. Here are his contact in case you need his help. Feel free to PM if interested. I do wish you all the best in life.

Smile Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

That is EXACTLY what happened to me(only difference is that i am taking welbutrin 300mg. Been taking it for a month now, and cant get a full erection. Once my penis got soft during sex!! I never had any problems in bed, was always fully erected when needed to. Also, i dont think about sex anymore. I almost thought i was finding out im gay(im 21) because now its even difficult for me to get an erection while watching porn(which was always a matter of seconds), but then i found your post and it all made sense to me, and i hate it. It helps me A LOT with my depression and anxiety issues, but its not worth never having an erection again, especially in my prime student years. I noticed this post was writing 8 years ago, but i hope that you see this and write me back with what happened with you and the erectal issues.

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

I've a 51 year old male and I was having a very weak erection due to this medcation, it was the only medication I wasn't alergic to and that helped my depression. So I had no choice but to take it because the depression would be unbearable. So I
a herbal regiment and OMG I now have the best of both worlds.

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

No problem so far and have been on 300mg XL once a day.

Also for anyone with depression I highly recommend looking at Sam-E my therapist recommended recently taken 800mg a day. It's supposedly not OTC in Europe but is in the US. I bought mine through Amazon. Been making a difference

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

6 weeks on 150mg XL, and it's been a nightmare. I was originally prescribed to treat Strattera induced loss of libido. I quit Strattera outright, libido returned, and with bupropion I have soft-ons and otherwise diminished no sexual response (I had a more severe version of this when I was on Adderall). I traded one sexual side effect for another. I cannot understand how these three things effect me this way.

I kept hoping a few more weeks, a few more weeks, the side effects would subside. Has anyone had this side effect and had it subside?

Re: Wellbutrin: Sexual Impotence Side Effect

Maybe get a second opinion? I would not tolerate impotence as a side effect, and ask my doc to discontinue me immediately. Impotence can wreak havoc on a relationship.
