I was on that medication for about a year. The first few months I wasn't intimate with my partner at all. After awhile i stopped having those side effects but they started up again near the end of me being on it so I started a new medication.

Thank you...but is really terrible i would say more terrible than the panic disorder ive been dealing with from some years...but i should never take any medicine like this if i could get out from my house... Wonder how some people take it just for feeling little anxious or feeling little depressed...
