Jan 15, 2017 · I'm wondering what peoples' dose is on Effexor and how it affects you sex drive. I ask as I'm reading some, but not many, reports of (men's?) sexual drive returning to a more normal state at doses of 225 mgs and above but can't find any study to back this up. Currently taking 150mg of Effexor but noticing that is affecting my desire and drive to have sex. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what countermeasures did you take to increase your sex drive?
