Our expert says:
Don't wean yourself off ANYTHING until you have seen the prescribing shrink for a re-assessment and advice on whether this is a good idea. It sounds as though a different balance, perhaps of different drugs, might help more. Though some meds may indeed reduce libido, being actively bipolar screws up one's sex life even more comprehensively, and what FEELS creative when one is high is often rubbish to the neutral observer. Is it practical to revisit your first shrink, or another, for a second opinion ?
