    I have been on Mirtazapine for a number of years. I did gain a little(10lbs)of weight initally but the weight has come off.If you took yourself off the drug, hope your doc knows.There are a number of antidepressants that don't have sexual side effects.Ask your doc and see what he(she) recommends.

    I take viagra for my sexual side effects but I am also on a number of other drugs. I buy it on a website because it is so expensive. You won't gain weight with some of the

    other antidepressants. If you want to know more contact me. Wildflower

    woody I don't know if this web site will allow me to post the site that I buy viagra from.If you have a e-mail address that would work fine. Prozac doesn't have that particular side effect. If I listed more it might be for not because one drug will have side effects for one person but not for another.

    It's pretty much trial and error much of the time.Stan

    Hi Woody, have you tried sertraline ? as far as i know most anti dep can cause sexual dysfunction, i am on sertraline and this has happend to me, also when i was on prozac that was the same. I have read that mirtazapine is one that does not interfere as much but in your case it does. I guess that every one is different. :wink:

    As the other guys have said, dont give in to your thoughts. I have been on Mirtazapine for 2 weeks and seem to feel much worse in the morning...anxious...selfharm thoughts etc. I am also taking a low dose tranquiliser 1mg which seems to help. Go back to your doctor as your kids need you and you have seen already the effect....this is the thing that keeps me going.

    all the best
