Post dilantin-sex drive

I've been on dilantin for about 9 months now and my sex drive has greatly deteriorated. Has anyone else had this problem? what are some things you can help take to counter this? PLEASE any information

My hubby is on Dilantin, and I don't think it has affected his sex drive. He's been on Dilantin as long as I've known him though, so it may be and I don't know it. Sorry I can't be of much more help. Try talking to your doctor, maybe he could switch you to another med that doesn't cause that side effect.

Do not fear and for goodness sake do not let the thought crawl up in your head and start reading a book. I have been on Dilantin for over 2o years and believe me...I sometimes wish it would slow me down..
Wipe it from you mind my friend...

Rock on..
Rock on..
