50mg Zoloft vs 150mg Welbutrin
Hello - I am depressed and in the middle of finding the right med. I was on 50mg of Zoloft for a little under a month but the sexual side effects were just making my depression worse. I know this is a common side effect of SSRI's so after talking to my Dr he prescribed me Welbutrin. After some research, which can help AND hurt, I feel like the side effects of welbutrin are worse and/or more severe. All I want is a med that works that won't render me impotent or not allow me to ejaculate. Does anyone have experience with these meds, and if so, what are your thoughts/concerns/advice for the difference between these 2 meds. Thanks!
