ok, whats wrong with me...

Ok I was once in a bad car accident, life has changed since then and it makes this really hard to figure out. I was put on some meds after the accident, Strattera and zoloft for I'd say 2-3 years. I recently thought the zoloft was to blame for seamingly decreased interest in sex/getting excited etc...so I stoped taking it. Let me tell you one of the best things I could have done. But what seamed to happen was I got tired and could one make it through about half a day till I wanted to lay down and go to sleep. Back to the Dr and now on provigil sleeping disorder med i belive. Ok got the energy back. I got back my interest in sex and that stuff after being off of the zoloft for about 2-3 weeks. So I'm somewhat back to normal. Here is the problem... In my head it doesn't take much to get excited or wanting to have sex or look at girls etc...and actually "getting it up" is no problem. I think the problem is keeping interest when actually doing physical stuff. I don't want to say it's the girl, I've been with her for over a year and it is/was fine before. I did once take some kind of pills (you know the ones that don't do shit unless you are taking them) pro- something. That actually seamed to make me feel better about it before but I had no reason to even take them. I guess I was just curious as to what they would do. What I'm trying to figure out is what I need to try to change whats going on. So here is the list of how things go..
1. see something that gets me exctied.
2. think about what it is (something on tv, computer, see pic in magazine, or the girl does something)
3. excitment gets to the ok, need to do something level.
4 take matters into my own hands if it is something on tv, computer, see pic in magazine etc...
5. get rejected by the girl and then end up going to sleep somewhat pissed off.
6. The girl is interested also (rare occurance) and we start doing stuff. Enter into problem now....
Sometimes she like to mess around for a while and some times she just dives right into it. It seams that when she just gets right into it I don't take long. But if I try to take it slow on my own and mess around first, I usually end up giving in and moving right to the sex. I guess what I'm trying to figure out is....
Is my mind to sexually excited and the body normal?
Is the body not able to keep up with the normal mind?
I have no idea what to try.
first post, been trolling for a while and learned alot just from reading. needed help on this one.

Tell me, have you approached your doctor about this specific issue and actually gone into an analysis of the drugs you're taking - may be time for a professional re-assessment of your needs.
Don't - whatever you do - take things into your own hands and troll through the web loking for answers because it'll just confuse you and possibly direct you into multiple different directions which'll only make things worse.
Go to you doctor and don't leave until he/she gives a straight answer. If it's not good for you get a second or third professional opinion.

Before it was either meds and feel good but deal with side effects (sexual type things) or don't take the meds and not feel right all the time so I couldn't tell if the sexual part was fixed or not cuz i felt like crap in general.
I will have to contact a doctor and get an answer.
Is there anything else I can try to help narrow it down or what? Maybe the brain isn't comunicating with the body 100%??

Generally speaking though, you need to look after your health (I don't know what you diet's & exercise regime's like but that can help in a big way too - anything that balances you out physically is going to have an effect mentally).

I did notice a change once I finally got off the zoloft but still need to see mr dr and see what he has to say. My luck I'll get the PA and shes pretty nice looking. Explaining sexual situation problems to an attractive femal dr = errr hard but better cuz she could relate as if she was the girl. Again thanks, I'll stick around for sure.
