Look, I am about as shy and quite as they come. I really can't believe I am posting this, but I am worried about my marriage. My wife and I have not made love in a long time. I take an anti depressants, and I wonder about that. The point being for years we had a great sex life. I have no problems with erections, just can't seem to ever be in the mood. I need to talk to a doctor, and I really don't know what to say, I guess just blurt it out!! I'm sure some of you will have some laughs about this, but please know I am serious. Any help will be appreciated

Re: Help!!

What you are posting is normal. It is highly likely that your problems are the result of the medication you're taking, as loss of sex drive is a very common side effect of just about all of them. Just blurting it out is probably the best way. If your doctor has done a thorough analysis of you (and hopefully he has since he's got you on anti-depressants), something like this should be no sweat. He probably already knows a hundred different other things about you that you're uncomfortable talking to other people about, and anyway, I doubt it's the first time he's heard this particular complaint. This is something you need to do for yourself and your wife. If you don't do it, no one else will, and you'll be trapped.

Re: Help!!

Please do yourself a favor and talk with your doc. This is a very common problem associated with antidepressants and one that can be resolved with just a slight medication change. I'd call and just set up an appointment to discuss progress etc and then tell him what is going don't need to deal with those type of problems while also dealing with depression. Take care and good luck!
