  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • About five years ago I started noticing it was very hard to reach orgasm during intercourse. About three years ago I noticed a lack of interest in sex. About one year ago I noticed it was very hard for me to get and maintain an erection. I also started getting dry orgasms even during masturbation.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Depression a bit better but not a lot. Memory lapses since taking cymbalta. Tried to very slowly stop (from 60mg every day to 60 one day and 30 one day, but dizziness and that "head in an vise " feeling got much more pronounced and I moved back to 60 every day. I would ilke to stop cymbalta but seems so difficult if not impossible due to side effects.
