Didn't affect my sex drive, but did affect the practical side.

Numbness and inability to orgasm are pleasant symptoms.

Although I did stop taking it after a month because it started giving me insomnia.

Apparently trazodone is sometimes added to SSRIs to reverse the sexual side effects these medicines have. It also has the potential to cause priapism in men!

I haven't been on any anxiety drug of AD yet that didn't have serial side effects.

3 SSRIs, 4 TCS, trazodone, pregabalin and duloxetine all caused varying degrees of ED, numbness and inability to reach orgasm.

Mirtazapine had no adverse affect in that department until I'd been on it for 4 years, but that problem could be diabetes related.

Pregabalin was good in that it has a very short half life so one day off it and normal service was resumed :) So the odd short break from them fixed things.

I have found for whatever reason it has cancelled out the sexual dysfuntion from SSRIs for me. I have just posted a thread on it actually.
Plus it knocks me out at night.
