I am tired of thinking about sex too much. I can’t watch movies or shows with sexy women because it makes me think about sex and want to release. Its not porn addiction as I stopped porn in the past and it didn’t help as I was still getting mental sexual images like of my last gf or of celebrities/actresses etc
The 5mg risperidone helps, it reduces sex drive by lowering testosterone and increasing prolactin, it was much worse before and on Abilify. I was on 6mg before I felt more normal but had side effects like choking on food and water/saliva so returned to 5mg.
I took licorice supplement it helped but I read that its bad for heart health.
Yes but never worked with my degree, only did part of the internship/training. Outside my house I do get intrusive sexual thoughts, though never now on risperidone or extremely rare, but I never act on them and I can hide them pretty well but when my negative symptoms started, a few years before positives and before diagnosis, I used to masturbate in the university bathroom for a while. This problem started when I started university. I did that too when I was on Abilify later but now on risperidone I am always home and think about sex much less than before. It still annoys me though.
