I have to use a chemical to feel sex drive


#1

I cannot feel sex drive at all when sober, I cannot conceptualize the feeling in my brain. I have to use a chemical to feel it. If I wanna have sex I have to use chemical and I’m only 26. I hate being mentally I’ll.


#2

Is this an rx?

#3

Having no sex drive is a common side effect of antidepressants. Wellbutrin usually doesn’t have this side effect, if I remember correctly.


#4

I’m not on any anti depressants or meds at all. I can’t conceptualize certain feelings in my brain due to my illness.


#5

No, not an RX. S


#6

Have you considered getting on meds? And what is your diagnosis?


#7

No diagnosis. The doctors can’t explain my anhedonia.it happened after my positive symptoms went away by themselves and my depression lifted. It’s surreal.


#8

I tried Wellbutrin and cabergoline to no success


#9

Is your anhedonia affecting daily living and relationships?


#10

Which kind of chemical @Plindiana?
Stay away from street drugs.


#11

Yes severely. I’m unable to have a relationship


#12

It’s not good, but like I said it’s the only way I can feel certain emotions. Not my choice, just the cards I was dealt.


#13

Instead of doing drugs, go see a doctor and consider getting placed on medication.

Street drugs will make you feel worse in the long run.


#14

You certainly need help.Thats why you’re here.Stay on this site,don’t go for cheap things!


#15

Here’s a lot people who had been where you are now.


#16

I have been placed on meds. Like I said the docs don’t have an answer. That’s their words. I’ve tried testosterone injections and cabergoline from docs, it doesn’t do anything. And also tried anti depressants.


#17

Thanks, I don’t think I’ll ever get my feelings back tho.


#18

I’ve been wandering streets for two years thinking the same thing.


#19

You have anhedonia?


#20

Not in 20 years on meds.
