This is a fairly common side effect of SSRI's. Have you tried Wellbutrin yet? It can have the opposite effect for some people.

No but I might try the switch. My girlfriend has been really pissed at me recently because she swears that I'm not attracted to her anymore since I can't stay completely hard during sex. Any kind of quick remedy like a dick ring, or an otc medication that can at least alleviate my sexual problems for a bit?

I think this is nature's way of guaranteeing you don't reproduce, sort of like 'survival of the non-cutting fittest'.

I actually had major weight loss when I started Lexapro, again because when I was really depressed all I did was eat. Also I quit drinking and exercised a ton.

Gained it all back of course, but still.

Wellbutrin actually can help with weight loss. It's a norepinepherine reuptake inhibitor that works by increasing the levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. These are the same chemicals that make you feel satisfied.

If you ever want any more specific info regarding mood stabilizers or antidepressants, feel free to pm me. I've dealt with having bipolar disorder relatively successfully for the last 16 years.
