Trying to Find the "Feeling" again

I have been diagnosed with clinical depression and take the following prescriptions - Lamictal and Lexapro.  However, I can't seem to have an orgasm.  I enjoy being with my boyfriend and certainly have the desire, so low sex drive and/or disinterest is not the problem.  I've talked with my doctor - haven't figured it out yet, so I'm going back this week.  Just trying to get some ideas about what I can do...  Getting off the medication is not an option at this point and I feel so much better prior to taking them, but I miss that "euphoric" feeling...  Appreciate your suggestions and feedback... U-

Unfortunately, this is a side affect of most/all SSRI/MOI inhibitors. However, from what I've read online, the drug with the lowest possibility of this side affect is Wellbutrin. Talk with your doctor about this and see if this would be a possible treatment for you. Sadly, I had the same issue with Celexa and I was only taking 40mg. I'm off of it now and suffering with the withdrawal symptoms. I'm waiting for it to clear my system so I can start up on St. Johns Wort. I wish I had better news for you. :-(
