Question Women's sexual side effects with Adderall

Ladies,

I saw a post asking if Adderall caused sexual side effects for anyone, and only men answered the post. I'd like to hear from you women. And let me know if you take Adderall XR or Adderall, and the dose, please.
And, if it does cause sexual side effects, I'd like to know how. For instance, you still have the desire, but can't have an O, or it takes forever to have an O, or the O's are wimpy. Or if it leaves you with no desire at all, or much lessened. OR that it actually increases your desire and/or makes your O's better. That would be my choice, personally. LOL

Thanks,

~Susan

p.s. - yes, this is embarrassing for me to ask but HEY, sexuality is a part of life! And I'm okay with that! I'm comfortable with myself! I feel NO SHAME! heehee

i think that my wellbutrin has more side effect than adderall..
i originally took wellbutrin alone w/out adderall and my anti sex drive flipped onto sex mode, my orgasms were amazing and exponential,
adderall didn't do anything different.

that is funny. i started wellbutrin 3 weeks ago and can't believe the 180 my sex drive/ability has done. I used to take zoloft, for about 4 years... i must have forgotten what it was like to not have a supressed libido.
i was just talking to my *special friend* about this topic though, adderall and sex drive. he is male, but said it makes him want sex more but can't necessarily remain ready for the act physically. i guess we don't have to worry about that, but i have noticed adderall has slight effects, but nothing too notable with the actual playing out of things.

wellbutrin, however, makes me think now i know what it is like to be a guy. i mean this in the way that now i think about sex too much, love it when it's happening (don't get all distracted anymore), and it's easy to get to the finish line. again and again.

i guess that's cool

Me too! LOL

Unfortunately it made me abnormally irritable too, so I had to quit taking it!

Strattera does something similar to me though! But without the irritability! Yeehaw!

Probably because they are both SNRI's is my guess!

Anyway back on topic!

Adderall did nothing for my libido!

I used to take Zoloft and my O's were pretty much non existant. Then When I got off and switched to Adderall, Oh boy. I think I am back in the swing of things! It was a nice feeling after not being sexual for all those years. YAY!

yes, getting off zoloft was a very hard thing for my body. i would sometimes get so dizzy i'd stumble over at work i also had nausea and headaches and all that good stuff. and for quite some time, like a couple weeks. but detox won't happen unless you let your body go through those withdrawals. kinda scary to realize how physically dependent your body was on a drug! hope the process isn't too bad for you~

Decreased

I started Adderall about 2 weeks ago and also switched from Wellbutrin to Cymbalta at the same time. I had also been switched from Lexapro to the Wellbutrin a few weeks before that. I really liked the lexapro b/c I had hardly any side effects and it def did not effect sex drive or the time it takes to orgasm, but I started to get panic attacks. My sex drive has definitely gone down since the switch, but not sure if that's attributed to the Adderall or Cymbalta.

Probably the serotoninal effect from the Cymbalta would be my guess!

Peace!
