eplispy...meds...and the bedroom

I asked about this on another board, but just got a sort of general answer so I am hoping it is ok to put it on here and hopefully get an answer from people who know what I'm dealing with.

My boyfriend has told me that I'm not as active in the bedroom as I used to be and that I never want to make the first move. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I'm not like I was about a year or so ago.

My neuro has changed my meds around many times since then but I am currently on Depakote, Tegretol, Kepra and Lamictal.

On the other board someone mentioned that if any of these meds are used for depression this could be the reason. I also have a vagus nerve stimulator that I believe is used for depression as well as eplispy.

Thank you for any help that you can provide

It's true that those drugs do have that side effect when it comes to sex.
Talk with your boyfriend-experiment-that's one way you can find out what 'stimulate' you more!

Tell him he'll have to work with you-and be understanding at the same time.

Hope this has helped.....
