As with many antidepressants, Cymbalta can cause sexual side effects. Some sexual side effects of Cymbalta may include a decreased sex drive, ejaculation problems, and impotence. If a person does develop sexual side effects, it is difficult to know whether these problems are because of the condition or because of Cymbalta itself.

Sexual side effects are common with antidepressants in both men and women, so your concern is understandable. Effects on your sexual function can include: A change in your desire for sex. Erectile problems. Orgasm problems.
Although you are on a low dose of Cymbalta, the sexual side effects are a side effect that will likely not go away.
