Been having chronic ED since i was on Lamictal 2 years ago and it frickin sucks. I haven't had one solid E during this entire time.

You truly don't know what you have until you lose it or however the saying goes.

Anyone else suffer from this?

Do you not take viagra? This was a worry for my on effexor and my dr was completely ignorant and said he'd never heard of it and that I would be fine. I didn't trust him and stopped it, despite it slightly helping my DP at the time

Did you lose your erection on Effexor? Did you get it back after you quit?

I quit Lamictal 2 years ago. I'm not saying it necessarily caused my ED, i'm just saying the ED started when i was on Lamictal.

As for its effectiveness. It did absolutely nothing for my DP/BM, as expected.

I would not recommend it for blank minders considering memory loss and cognitive issues are very common side effects.

I hadn't followed this thread after posting over a year ago, but I was asked if I was one of 30 million Americans who suffer from ED.

I'm 65 now, and I would assume my sexual health is normal for my age. I can achieve erections with stimulation. It's a bit different

from when I was 14 and went around with a hard on all day long. My illness began at age 17 with violent temporal lobe seizures, some 30 epileptic

discharges in about 3 minutes. My brain was fried. I lost all positive emotions, was filled with dread, and I had zero libido. None.

I was suffering horribly with insomnia, anxiety, and powerful feelings of hopelessness as I lay awake night after night.

I tried to stimulate myself sexually as a distraction, and I got no response. My penis had died. Long story short, over the next decade I probably reaquired

75% of my emotions and libido. (without any treatment). Never quite the same, but I managed to father a couple of children and enjoy myself at the same time.

My older brother had ED. It got to the point where the little blue pills no longer worked for him. They're in my bathroom cabinet now.

I've never taken one. It's always good to have an ace in the hole. I did take paxil and Effexor for a decade each. They changed the

sensation of orgasm for me. Made the feeling fuzzy, sort of like going from a bell to a buzzer. I liked the bell better. Took Lexapro

at 40mg a day, and zero side effects for several years. Now I take nothing since ECT in 2014.
