    ...I'm now on 10mg of escitalopram and my APRN wants to increase at some point, but its the same issue; even though I'm not sexually active, I don't like being "dead" either, so we're gonna take it slowly this time,
    I get your angst, but I don't see the point of taking a med at what seems to be an ineffective dose. Also be aware that BZDs can impact the libido to a significant degree too.

    and I will consider your thread discussing this side effect. Because of my cardiac condition(s), they wouldn't want to put me on something to cause issues - seeing I'm on several medication (blood thinner - blood pressure - statin).
    Ginkgo biloba is the only one of the suggestions which may be risky as it is an anticoagulant.

    Re: Sertraline Noob

    Again, I'm grateful for your advice. Yeah, I don't know what to do at this point, as I've said before, I feel like I have to 'lead' my APRN - she is nonchalant to say the very least. I'll try to write more perhaps in another thread of my own as I don't want to encroach on this gentleman's thread.
