Have antidepressants killed your libido? Maintaining a healthy sex life can present mounting challenges for those of us over 50, and antidepressants don’t help. Depression can rob us of our desire to be intimate, and it’s ironic that certain drugs used to treat depression can be just as bad on our libido, if not worse. It’s unfortunate that, while many physicians are quick to prescribe antidepressants, they are not so fast to tell us about the sexual side effects these medications are known to cause. Sexual Health Advocate Bonnie Gayle joins us to discuss what we need to understand about antidepressants and libido, and offers tips – to discuss with your doctor – to reduce the sexual side effects of antidepressants.
