medication and sex drive

Posts: 218

since being on ;

seroquel - 800mg


abilify - 10mg

my sex drive has decreased immensly!! i used to have an abnormally hgih sex drive before and i want it back (but not as abnormally high as many of you probably get this too that you end up in dangerous situations etc)cause my sex life is suffering and has been for around 6months.


does anyone think its the pills or because ive been really depressed or a bit of both? is there anything that any of you do to get your drive back ?

Sex drive is important I agree. I think it could be the combination of pills and depression. I would talk with your psychiatrist and let him know your feelings on this and see if he can give you something that won't affect your sex drive very much. 6 months is a long time to be suffering. Your psychiatrist can help though, so give him a call.

I agree, it's probably a combination of the medication and depression. Your psychiatrist can help with this if you let him know as Joy said.
