Does anyone else have this problem and what are you doing about it.
I'm not on medication but I have the same problem sometimes.
It always coincides with my attacks. I'm usually normal that way and then after a seizure I'm not very sexual at all. My husband too is a saint about it!
I think after the attacks the brain is using all it's energy to recover.
Could it be your medicine dosage is too high? Or do you have some other stress? Stress always nips my romantic feelings in the bud.
lol I'm always asleep/cranky/depressed with stress.
I've noticed taking vitamins D and B-6 seem to help my drive in that area
B-12 is good too sometimes. Relaxation seems to be the key for me. Sometimes though I fall asleep in the middle of yoga
That isn't too romantic
I hope this helps! I'm awful in this area
