Many people who take antidepressants report that their libido, or sex drive, becomes much lower than it used to be. But, when people are depressed, their sex drive can also be low or non-existent anyway.

But which types of antidepressants can have this effect on you? And should this stop you from taking antidepressants? Or should you change the type you are taking?

If you feel that you still have a question that has not been answered, post your own question to our sexologist on our sexology forum or to Cybershrink.
