Wellbutrin SR and Libido: SummaryIt is impossible for your healthcare provider to know whether or not you will experience libido changes or any other sexual side effects with Wellbutrin SR. Also, if a person does develop sexual side effects while taking the medication, it is difficult to know whether these problems are because of the condition or Wellbutrin SR 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 SR, 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 SR sexual side effects, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your Wellbutrin SR dosage or try another depression medication.
