Good Morning Tony,

Welcome to Healing Well.  Your physician is correct from all I have read and learned, the Antidepresssants are notorious for sexual dysfunction.  There are a couple that are not. You may want to discuss changing your med.

Also, please note the following rule.  You may not have realized you had your cap locks on. :)
