emilija Posted December 6, 2005 Share Posted December 6, 2005 Perhaps this is an overshare, my apologies. God does indeed have a warped sense of humor. I am finally stable enough to start dating again. Many hellish years, 13 hospitalizations, etc. No boyfriend in more years than I care to admit. Now I am stable on Effexor, Zonegran, Zyprexa, Klonopin, thyroid hormone. It's been 3 years, and I'm working and living on my own. At first I totally lost my sex drive. I lost it so much, I didn't really even notice that I had lost it, so didn't miss it. And was so greatful to be stable I didn't care. But I've added l-tyrosine for ADD, and gotten some of my sex drive back. But I still feel pretty dead below the waist. On my last anti-depressant, parnate, I had no problems. I was always wet. I was always ready. (Unfortunately, I had no boyfriend). Now, I am as dry as can be. And it takes me the longest time to come when I masterbate. It is really hard. And not very good. So now I am dating again. And not about to jump into bed, but I can think how I'd like to spend my New Year's. What can I do? Do I try ginko? Yohibimine? Are they safe? Ask my doctor for viagra? She'll probably not give it to me unless I try without first. But I just don't want the first time after so long, and the first time with a new guy, to be bad. I just don't. I wish I could go back on the parnate. It stopped working for me, unfortunately. I hate this choice. Sanity or sex. I'm tempted to buy viagra off the internet. It seems safer than the herbal alternatives. Thanks for any feedback. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
