I am a 27yrs old male, I have been on venlafaxine HCL 100 mlg once a day for a year and 1/2. I do not have a problem getting hard and staying that way until I climax; but my girlfriend seems to always have to ask me for sex, do these pills slow down your sex drive. I love sex and I love her very much and do enjoy the process. What do you think
Divarty - I would have to say that it does. I was placed on venlafaxine (225mg) for PTSD when I returned home from Iraq. The doctors at the VA told me that it would have an effect on my sex drive. I have also found that, while, I do not have any trouble maintaining an erection, I do have some trouble in climax. This, I was told, was an additional side effect of the venlafaxine.
