From this study (1 week ago):
having trouble getting and maintaing erection, also loss of labido.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was on 50mg for a year & went up to 100mg. My sex drive became non-existant & the slightest thing sent me into a complete rage. I yell, scream, cuss, & say most horrible things to people I love. I feel the room spin and lose complete control. I have become physically agressive with my boyfriend. I've never punched or slapped him but I once tried to flip a mattress he was sleeping on. Several times after I've calmed down he has told me he feels like in my fits of anger I will hit him. He has also mentioned being concerned I may seriously injure him. I admit that during some of my outbursts I have wanted to slap him but Never has it gone to the point I've wanted to kill him! Just physically hurt him. I remember having the thought of kicking or some how hitting his broken ankle. This is NOT like me. I love this man VERY much & hate the thought of hurting him in any way. I remember shortly after beginning Zoloft getting angry but as time has gone on the anger has turned to rage and much more often. I go from calm to complete rage, there is no in between. In the last 9 months of being on Zoloft my boyfriend and I have had sex MAYBE 5 times. In January of this year my doctor changed me to Wellbutrin. Within 2 weeks of changing (durting the half Zoloft half Wellbutrin week) my sex drive began to return. Unfortunately the rage has continued. It led to the end of my relationship. About being on Wellbutrin only for a week I had the worse outburst yet. I cussed my him & accused him of physically abusing my dog. I said some of the most horrible things to him about our sex life. I cannot help but believe Zoloft was the cause of these anger issues.
