Low libido medications

Low libido? 6 drugs that affect your sex drive

Everyone's heard of medication that can improve your sex life (hello, Viagra!), but some drugs can actually quash it. If you're feeling less than interested in having sex, the culprit might be in your medicine cabinet. If you suspect your low libido might be related to your medication, talk to your doctor. (Don't just stop taking a potential lifesaver.) He or she will probably be able to suggest an alternative. "Communication is key, " says Dr. Raymond Hobbs, a senior staff physician in the department of internal medicine at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors

Depression is a well known libido killer, but so are some antidepressants. Prozac, Zoloft, and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) improve mood by raising serotonin. Unfortunately, that can also lower libido, says Dr. Irwin Goldstein, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego. You have options. Wellbutrin and Viibryd are two SSRIs that don't have this side effect. Or try exercise. A recent study suggests that women taking antidepressants who do cardio and strength training before sex may see improvements in the bedroom.

Tricyclic antidepressants

Since the SSRIs came out in the 1990s, tricyclic antidepressants such as Elavil aren't used as often. But some doctors do still prescribe them to treat not only depression, but also nerve pain such as that associated with shingles. But these, too, can decrease libido. If you have a problem, try switching drugs or playing with the dose (after talking to your doctor, of course). "A lot of times you just want to use the lowest dose that accomplishes what you want, " Hobbs said. "Start low and go slow."

My libido is very, very low

by female_34_yo

I have been with my partner for almost 5 years (married for 1). The first year, we had sex 3x a day. By time year 3 came around, we were down to 2-3x a week. Now we do it maybe 1x week at most.
I am not on any medications. I just don't feel horny at the same time he does. I tend to get horny during the morning and he wants it at night when I am tired. But mostly, I just don't feel a desire to do it that much anymore.
I still find him attractive. I have no desire for anyone else. Is this just the way sex becomes after you've been together this long?
We have discussed getting toys and/or pornos but I am afraid those will only be crutches not a solution. Thoughts?
