problems with sex drive - anyone else?

Hello everyone,

I have been on seizure medication for 4 years now. I am currently on Carbitrol 800mg a day.

I HAVE NO SEX DRIVE!!!!! My husband is a saint about it - very understanding, but it is driving me crazy. I want my body and mind to want sex, but it just isn't happening.

Does anyone else have this problem and what are you doing about it.

Diana

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 lol

I hope this helps! I'm awful in this area lol

Hi Kat,

Thank you for responding. What medication are you on? I am on Carbitrol.

I have no sex drive 29 days out of the month, and sometimes not even that. I might try the thing you listed. I don' know if I mentioned it, but I have also had a hysterectomy which makes things worse.
