Yes, the FDA does list that as being among its possible side effects, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.

Please be frank and tell me whether the coveram 5/5 drug affects the libido or not? ## Yes, libido issues can be a normal side effect of most blood pressure, and cardiac medications, according to the NIH, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination.

My boyfriend is on Effexor XR. We have been dating for 10 months and we've been dealing with his very, very low libido. I am very patient with him, but I can see myself eventually running out of patience. We actually haven't been intimate since Mid-July. So at this point it's been 5-months since he's had ANY interest in me. I have been self-reliant, but I am starting to have trouble myself, because I am tired of doing it myself. Recently he saw his PCP to discuss low libido and energy. His PCP seems to think it may be related to sleep apnea, but I don't think he's right. Yes, my boyfriend does have some trouble in that area, but I don't think it's as bad as he thinks it is. I believe the problem is Effoxor, but I certainly don't want him to go off of ... ...

Adderrall Libido & ED

Ive read a lot of men are having trouble with there libido or ED on this med I am currently on 10 mg twice a day last month & I find the opposite to be true. Because of other meds ( High BP Cholesterol Bypass surgery ) and Wellbutrin being in my late 50's My libido was gone for about 2 years ago I started with Testosterone shots monthly then daily underarm which helped because my numbers were very low but didnt quite make it all the way spotty but better.

side effects/ libido

how long after discontinuing losareten can i expect my libido to return? i am a 59 year old woman ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you? It could take a couple weeks for things to return to normal. What medication have you switched to? Most blood pressure and cardiac medications can cause loss of libido, as reported by the FDA, so it's really just a matter of trial an error to find one that works for you, without causing unwanted side effects. They may also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Your age may also be having an effect on your libido. Are you post menopausal? ...

No libido/mood swings

I have currently been taking sprintec for about 4 months now, and within the last 2 months I have had no libido at all. It has caused huge issues between my boyfriend, and I have mood swings all the time. Does anyone else have this problem? What did you do to help fix it? I have been on a bunch of different kinds of pills for birth control (I loved them), and I also was on the DEPO shot (I loved it but i gained over 50 lbs.). ## It really sounds like the estrogen in them doesn't agree with your body, you may naturally have a higher amount, so adding that in the pills is just pushing it too far. Have you considered trying the Mirena IUD? It only uses a form of Progesterone, rather than estrogens. ...

It has also been known to cause next day hangover-like effects, funny taste in mouth, and hallucinations. Have you consulted your doctor? There is also a chance that it could be caused by some other issue. Are you on any other medications? ...

Cost, works, energy, libido

I'm 43 year old Australian with borderline low testosterone levels who's been suffering from 'feeling like an old man' for the past 2 years. I've just started using Axiron in the last week (2 pumps a day) and already I feel a lift in energy levels and libido. The only downside is the occasional hot flush and difficulty getting to sleep. I'm sure that those minor issues will pass over time. I also take 125 mcg Thyroxine each day for hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's Disease). I look forward to more benefits from Axiron in the future. I should also add that a 110ml container of Axiron costs around $40 (yes, forty) Australian dollars (approx. US$35), compared to US$400 per container in the US. Thank goodness for taxpayer subsidised medicine in Australia (Pharmaceutical B ...

Loss of libido on trigestrel

Hey I'm on trigestrel pills. I started last week and now I have lost my libido and interest in engaging in intimacy. I previously enjoyed intimate moments every time. Is it the pills? What must I do? Please help. ## Yes, these are hormonal contraceptives, so they can that as a side effect in some women that take it, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, headache, dizziness, spotting and PMS-like symptoms. Usually, such side effects are transient and go away, once your body gets used to the medication, but it may take a few months. However, you should consult your doctor, as you may be better off trying a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi i have just switched from injection to trigestre. It's been 2 weeks now and i feel so much ... ...

Increased libido on Tramadol

I have severe back pain and I'm on 50mg of tramadol 4 times a day. Ever since I started to take these my libido has been increased drastically. Has anyone else noticed the same? ## Hello, Amber! How are you? I've not heard it mentioned, but it does make sense, in a way. All medications carry the risk of causing side effects, for instance along with being habit forming, the FDA lists those for Tramadol as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Usually, it lowers most people's libido, but conversely there are always a few people who actually experience the opposite of any side effect, they may get diarrhea, very water mouth and an accelerated libido. Has anyone else that's taken this experienced this issue? ## Just started taking today.... ...

when will I have a libido again?

I went to the hospital. Doctors gave me medicine specifically to decrease my libido. I don't know the name of it but I know that's what the drug was for. Months later I barely have any urges. It's creepy because I've always been ready to go. When will my libido go back up? I would hate to meet someone I really like but cannot please them. ...

Gabapentin affecting libido

My Gabapentin intake was increased to 2500mg a day and since then it has increased my libido dramatically. I was just wondering if there is anyone else who has had this side effect? It's not a bad side effect but I was just wondering. ## Some medications do that to some people, in some others it may cause the opposite effect. The FDA lists the other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. Have you experienced any other issues from taking this higher dose? ## I just got prescribed Gabapentin, 900 mg/day and this is day 5 and I'm still feeling loopy. If you don't mind me asking, why are you on such a high dose? I'm on it for a few nerve damage issues, but have noticed my mood is a bit more upbeat. ...

how to increase female libido

Is there any medicine that helps a female to increase their libido? and how to use it? ## As a woman myself, I tried a lot of things and took a lot of bad advice. I tried lifestyle changes, with a small amount of success. The big thing that helped is something called the big libido cookbook. It turns out that a lot of websites about the subject are only half right, or completely wrong. After I started eating the right things, I saw improvement after about 3 weeks. 2 months later, I was a monster, and needed to dial it back a little. My husband is constantly cooking libido recipes for me now, and it's pretty awesome. I wouldn't call it medicine, but I would definitely call it effective. ...

Reduced libido on venlafaxine

Hi, this is my second time trying Effexor. I was on it for several years a while ago, but went off as I got to the highest dose and it still stopped working after a while. Since then I've tried several other drugs to very little improvement, as well as ECT and rTMS, neither worked. Of course I've tried counselling and CBT, and mindfulness as well, but my brain is not even in a place where I can begin to implement those things. So, I believe that the Effexor is beginning to possibly help. I haven't had a major low in a few days, I'm actually able to push myself a little to do some stuff. I even tidied up a bit! First time I've really been able to do that in 6 months. Major problem though... most of the side effects I'm getting are deal-with-able, dry mouth, etc. B... ...

Side effects are usually transient and go away with time, once your body gets used to a medication. How long have you been taking it? ...

Pristiq an Libido- Advice Needed!

I have been taking Pristiq for about 3 years now due Anxiety attacks. After taking the drug for afew days I had the worst anxiety i'd ever had, i had horrible nightmares, nausea and bad headaches these symptoms completely disapeared by about a month after starting it. After the first month life was great I was back to my normal self, I could eat food again (which was the main reason for my anxiety attacks). For about 2 years it worked great for me with minimal side effects mainly brain ticks if i took the pristiq too late in the day, If i completely forgot the tablet I would be bed ridden the entire next day with terrible brain ticks, headaches and nausea, although 99 percent of the time I felt fine. I fell pregnant with my now 9 month old baby girl and decided to stay on pristiq wh... ...

Bupropionxl, weight loss, libido

I started on bupropion xl 150 mg, taking it to help with my libido ( 50+ years old going through menopause) and weight loss. Libido was great and lost a few pounds first week then nothing. Dr increased to 300 mg... I have been taking for 4 weeks, no weight loss and no libido.... I know this med can take awhile to work... any thoughts, will it begin to work soon? Anyone experience same thing? ## That's rather odd, while the FDA does list it as not being known to decrease libido, it is also not known to increase it in most people that take it. It is also not usually used, by itself to aid in weight loss, it is usually accompanied with Naltrexone. The FDA warns that this combination, known as Contrave, may cause headache, nervousness, dizziness, and anorexia. Did your doctor try you on... ...

Lamitor/Venlor, effects on libido

Hi, I am on Lamitor 100mg daily and Venlor 37.5mg also daily. Which of these has killed my libido? Or is it both? (Horror!!) Thanks. ## Hello, Fiona! How are you? It occurs very commonly as a side effect of the Venlor, which contains Venlafaxine, as reported by the FDA, so that is the most likely culprit. You may also experience nausea, headache, dry mouth, weight changes and hypotension. You may want to consult your medical provider about trying a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, Thanks for that. I have since stopped the Venlor and my libido has almoat normalised again so you were tight.. 90% main culprit. I am due to go on Wellbutrin next week and I'm nervous. Don't want a repeat but if it brings me out out this ADHD state (which I am... ...
