Okay, doc put me on a med. I'm still in the finding the right formula stage. Anyway it took away my ability to enjoy sex or orgasm. Fun right? Especially for the hubby. So, she took me off it and then things returned to normal in the bedroom. But it flipped my stability so then it had to be added back into my mix. This all seems to be working now yay but am I just screwed and not able to enjoy relations with my hubby? Anyone else have issues like this? Frustrated...

Some meds affect the bedroom. The meds that do that are different for each other.

I have been affected by this for months now. But my wife understands this is a side effect and nothing to do with her. So yeah your not alone in this aspect.

Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

But will it stay like this forever? I'm young and it sucks.

I've been asking my pdoc the same question. He says stabiity first then we'll talk side effects.

I can not say if it will stay that way for you. If it persists you need to research the drugs and consult with your pdoc and see about changing up your meds for a different one. I know it messed up your stability. But your the master of your future...

Yeah, stability is the best thing. It doesn't last long for me but it's nice when it all works out.

My libido recently returned to normal, not sure if it's due to meds finally stabilizing me or change in diet. Anyway, I eat a low carb diet now and my libido is excellent and I hadn't had any sexual pleasure in 3 years :?

The SSRIs are commonly known for doing this- making everything ‘a bit numb down there’. Fortunately it’s not permanent and will resolve when you stop the meds.
I’m not even sure which med you’ve been on but I know about the SSRIs as I had a similar problem and did a bit of research.

You know if I'm taking the stupid meds that cause me these problems the least they can do is work. Blah. Not feeling so hot.
