I used to have a high sex drive, but 2 years ago, my sex drive plummetted down to practically zero. I'm extremely attracted to my boyfriend, I'm ALWAYS touching him, but I just don't get horny anymore. It's so rare (maybe once a month) that I want to have sex. Mentally, I want it so bad, but physically it's just not happening.

My doctor prescribed me testosterone (I'm a woman). It's not really working. Any other ideas?

Did this happen after you began taking a particular med?

Well, I was on birth control and dexedrine and maybe (don't remember) geodon when it happened. Went off the birth control and geodon 1.5 years ago. The sex drive never came back. Then 6 months ago I went on cymbalta and abilify, and now I'm on divalproex.

So basically,

For the first 6 months of no sex drive, I was on birth control, dexedrine, and possibly geodon.

For the next year I was on only dexedrine, but no sex drive.

For the last six months I've been on cymbalta and abilify, and just went on divalproex, no sex drive.

I haven't been on birth control in 1.5 years.

No sex drive for 2 years.

I'm looking for an add-on med that has horniness as a side effect. So far I'm thinking gabapentin? And Pramipexole? Would thyroid hormone increase my sex drive?

Cymbalta and abilify have had a detrimental effect on my sex drive. I've recently started Lamotragine and I have my sex drive and ability to orgasm back as well as bigger boobs.

I will ask my doctor about switching my cymbalta to wellbutrin.
