Question: sexual side effects question

 concerned b/f - Wed Aug 03, 2005 1:41 am

My new girlfriend is bipolar and takes cymbalta, lexapro, and buspirone. She is bashful about this, so I am getting information for her. As a side effect she has difficulty reaching orgasm, even when pleasing herself. Is there something else she can try taking? Please, any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
