Other Sexual Side Effects With Wellbutrin
In previous studies, delayed ejaculation and painful erections were reported in at least 1 percent of men taking Wellbutrin (although the exact percentage was not reported). Painful ejaculation was reported very rarely, in less than 0.1 percent of men taking Wellbutrin.
 

Final Thoughts

It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know whether or not you will develop any sexual side effects with Wellbutrin. Also, if a person does develop sexual side effects, it is challenging to know whether these problems are because of the condition or Wellbutrin itself. This is because sexual symptoms are common in people with depression. In fact, one-third of people with untreated depression report sexual side effects.
 
If you develop sexual side effects while taking Wellbutrin, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. There are treatments that he or she may be able to recommend. Depending on the severity of your Wellbutrin sexual side effects, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your Wellbutrin dosage, or may suggest trying another depression medication altogether.
