Do any of you have trouble with Sexual Desire. You can buy things to make the "experience" better, LOL. But, I don't have the desire to start with. I know I can't be the only one. Are there any meds that make it worse than others?
Please, anyone, I need help! My Hubby is not so happy.
Not really sure but my two medicines as I have read about Keppra and Trileptal, and my former meds Tegretol, Dilantin, Depakene, Mysoline, Phenobarbitol and others, have just made me feel as if a naked woman is a beautiful vision, but when I'm with or near naked women I don't get aroused at all. Some women think Im' crazy. I told them other guys not on medicines may go crazy around you in the nude but remember I'm not only on AED meds but antidepressants, blood pressure meds too. The medication seems to just keep me so calm. Arousal is anxiety so any medicine made to keep me calm and free of seizures will keep me calm and prevent arousal. A lot of men complain about lack of sexual drive, decreased libido and other issues. Only a few medications don't have that side effect, but the medicine you need thats good for your seizures may not be the one without that side effect. I've learned to put up with it and be sexless most of my life.
Its even hard for me to find a girlfriend because unless I have a high sex drive I can't be anything more than just a friend or companion or someone to talk to. Lack of sex causes me to lose out on every attempted relationship
it's Gigi again, reading the threads here and thought this might interest someone.
