Low sex drive

I' m diagnosed ADD and use an anti-depressent for it, Cymbalta. It helps with ADD but lowers sex drive. Are there any alternatives?

MM your best bet is to discuss this with your prescribing psychiatrist - there are some anti-depressant medications that have a less negative impact on sex drive, but they might not be suitable for your ADD. Your psychiatrist should be up to date on the all of the medications available, but you need to express your concerns regarding libido with him/her (they are quite used to this problem and will do what they can).
