Thanks for the follow-up, Jay I'm very pleased to hear she has made such a good recovery. I NEVER believe that competent treatment of ANY psych disorder can consist solely of medication, and that is why I always nag about counselling, especially of the CBT sort, as an essential part of pr oper treatment. It can deal very well with issues such as self-esteem. Various ADs can reduce libido, but there is no reason for this effect to last more than a week or two ( depending on the particular drug and how fast it is elimibnated ) after stopping it. A few ADs don't have this effect, and should have been considered, had this probl;em been brought to the attention of the doctor.
Camcolit ( a form of Lithium ) should not affect her libido, and should help to keep her mood stable.
I know of NO form of medicine that is a relaible and safe libido booster, on its own let alone in combination with other necessary meds. Better to discuss this with her treating doc, to consider adding counselling, and reviewing the medications.
