what AD for my depressed, low sex-drive bf?

Posted by fairnymph on June 26, 2002, at 14:37:51

My bf suffers from mild to moderate depression...fatigue, lethargy, moodiness, low sex drive, general discontent etc.

He is going to see a doc very soon...and I'm thinking that the best drug for him to try would be Wellbutrin.

I do NOT want him on a drug with sexual side effects or I will go insane...Wellbutrin shouldn't inhibit his sex drive, right? We are pretty sure that his libido is dampened because of his depression, and that once he starts treating his depression his sex drive will increase.

Another thing I am thinking of is reboxetine or maprotiline, which increases sex drive (at least it did for me)....he doesn't have any anxiety issues or other psychoses, just straight depression. Of course, the drawback with the NARIs are that they aren't available in this country and we would have to import them...

Any other suggestions? I dont think he would want something sedating....meds that cause weight gain wouldn't be a problem though as he is quite thin.
