Ok, when I first started the drug merry-go-round, I had feeling down there.  (I started out on Zyprexa and Lithium.)  But, as time went by, it disappeared.  (I  don't remember if it was okay while on the zyprexa.  Wish I had paid more attention.)  Anyway, I tried other fun anti-psychotics until I finally went off of them altogether.

So now I was on lithium only.  That was only for about 3 months.  My sex drive did not return.  My pdoc says it may be psychological because lithium should not do that.  Maybe it would have come back in time, who knows.

But, now I am on Lexapro as well.  (bad anxiety, depression)  My pdoc recommended it because it had a low occurence of sexual side effects.

If anyone could help me, that would be great.  It definitely is low on the priority list at this time, but I've got to fix it sometime.

Thank you!

Wish I could help you but unfortunately I can't. Just wanted to say, hang in there. If it's not the lithium and not the Lexapro then it will eventually come back.

The thing is, sometimes you gotta work for it. Try forcing yourself to think about sex. Or reading porn novels, there are some pretty good ones out there. This will feel ridiculous at first, but over time it might help. It helped me. You have to get back to a state of mind where sex is even an option. When you're unbalanced emotion-wise, sex is the last thing you want to think of. But you should, since it can be such a good force in your life.

Good Luck!

Yeah I also started out on Zyprexa and Lithium and now I'm just on the lithium, have been for well over a year.. unlike you though my sex drive returned just as high as it was before if not higher...

I'm not sure what could be causing a lack for you...perhaps it is psychological? I wish I could help, but I really have no idea what it would be. I say to follow Helena's suggestions up there, they sound like they would work. ;)
