Question Meds and sex drive. - September 23rd 2009, 10:00 PM

I take meds for ADD. I was on adderall, then something else, now concerta. Anyway, they all have seemed to kill my sex drive while I'm taking them. I never have an urge to masturbate and I think about sex a lot less. When I'm not taking them like over the summer and over the weekend I usually masturbate once a day, but it just never dawns on me two when I'm on them. The good part I guess is that when I do, it feels a lot better. But still,

Does anyone else who takes meds for ADD or something similar experience this?

I don't have ADD but I DO know meds can mess with your sex drive... Some of my friends have had the same experiences... If its not getting in the way of your sex life, I wouldn't worry though



How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.
