I have the opposite problem, my libido was high even before sz. I was addicted to sex and I was going to seek help as it got painful but then it went down on 5mg Risperidone. Its much less but I still think its a bit high, the libido.
I became completely asexual and my genitals numb it was impossible to get aroused I didn’t masturbate for months because I felt nothing and because I was completely uninterested I would look at porn and feel nothing Zyprexa did this to me and does this to me now no sexual desire nothing.
@aziz please watch your phrasing. You’re not a doctor and do not have qualification to tell someone what meda to take or avoid. And even if you were, we’d not allow that because giving medical advice online is risky.
You could try amantadine. It’s a dopamine promoter that can help with sexual issues but also negative symptoms like motivation. Be careful though because it could also worsen positive symptoms. 50mg I take each day but I got paranoia at 100mg.
I have less libido than before, but this might be due to me just being scared to come anywhere near a man.
If I wanted more libido, I’d first look into herbs and natural options. I just know the lady ones… for example something like fennel (girl’s only > estrogen enhancer). Or saffron - for men and women, watch out for addiction and side effects, it works like an antidepressant and shouldn’t be combined with one, drinking tea from real good quality saffron makes it possible to dose carefully… I wouldn’t use it daily but only “as needed”. I can give you more options if you are interested in herbs too.
Question: if libido decreases. Drive to seek sex or orgasm is less.
Isn’t it like being less hungry, I just don’t want to eat as much.
Why does one want to increase libido?
Is it pressure because of being in a relationship with someone who has higher libido?
