Unhappy Re: How long for libido return after quitting an SSRI (Lexapro)?

Anyone??? Can someone at least point me to a place where I might find an answer? Thanks in advance.

My question: When will my sex drive return? 2 years of these meds (first Effexor, then Lexapro) have absolutely killed my sex drive and I really want it back (so does my husband). Does anyone have anyexperience with this? How long did it take for your sex drive to return?
