Hi,

This is a real personal one and I would be extremely grateful of some male help.

I have been very low lately and suffering with bad anxiety so doctors gave me paroxetine. (10g a day)

I can't believe this but it appears to have preventing me from ejaculated, (I literally could cry as my partner and I have been trying for a baby)

I was wondering if anyone had been in a similar position and got this sorted or if it im going to have to come off the tablets and pray I don't get any worse with my mental health.

Forgive me for not meeting the gender criteria...but these will help you.

Paroxetine is actually used to treat premature ejaculation in some countries and sexual disfunction is listed as a side effect in its use as an anti-depressant. Have linked both medical articles below.

I think it might be an idea to explain to your doctor that you are trying for a family and see if an alternative can be offered, as this is a well-documented side-effect of the drug. x

Hi mate.
I know this is sensitive and a serious topic, I think many blokes are suffering with the same from using anti depressants or anti psychotics. (me included).
I really dont know how i can help or give advice, but i can share a little humour maybe.


Yes, its clear that the pills can have bad side effects. Personally i want to be discharged asap. Goodluck and i hope you can find a way to overcome this problem or atleast get some good advice. Take care.

Funny you ask this mate. I am on clipixol 200ml every four weeks and fluoxetine 40mg every morning and I too have had erection issues, low libido and ejaculation problems for a while now too. Sometimes I just cannot ejaculate and it is so frustrating.

I don't know what we can do to be honest. I don't wanna come off the anti-depressants as they generally help me feel better. Maybe we could try something different?

Thank you all for your replies I have just spoke to another doctor who said this is so so so common in men and he has had lots of men refuse them and the fact we are trying for a baby he should never have given them me! So these are supposed to be the people we trust in such challenging times!
