My mom took Lexapro an she said it messed up her sex drive. And she took it for a few years and she started having suicidal thoughts too. She was better of with the depression medicine. It also made her wantto sleep all the time, like she'd lay down and take. Nap at like 11am and then again at 3pm and then be in bed by 8pm.

Well, gee, my mom never talks about her sex drive with me. That would be way too weird for both of us I think, but that's just us. LOL! We're not prudes or anything but we just don't go there.
Tell me, are you male or female? Just curious.

My wife takes it-it makes it tolerable to live with her. Calms
her down and she doesn't go into her rages like she did.
Didn't effect her sex drive much, she didn't have one to begin with.

Lexapro did not help my depression. I have used zoloft and cymbalta to successfully treat depression.
Hope this helps

Oh my gosh fits of rage? Sounds like her
hormones are out of balance. She doesn't
need depression medication. Tell her
to get her hormones checked. They can
give her proper medication for that and
it will help her sex drive.

Female. Me and my mom were very close and I could honestly tell her anything and we were open about talking about anything..

Any kind of bi-polar or depression medicine will deminish sex drive in men or women. You have to make a decision if you want to feel better mentally or have a higher sex drive. I have been on prozac for years. It does deminish sex drive. But, without it I', such a holly terror no one would or could stand to be around me long enough to have sex. My husband said it was all in my head, duh, so I threw them to him and told him to keep them. With in the week he gave them back and said he'd beg, borrow , or steal them if he had to. lol It's easier on a woman naturally than on a man. It is hard for the partner to understand. Good luck.

If you have suisidal thoughts tell your doctor. There are many different meds to try. Also if it is bi-polar it is hereditary. So watch for signs starting as early as 13 in children. If I go off prozac look out cause I'll say or do anything and not care. Then anger is so deep and crying never stops. Prozac just brings me back to where I would normally be. Bi-polar is a desease the brain cells don't grow back fast enough. It's like if you skin cells did not reproduce you would have a hole in the skin it is the same principal with bi-polarism. Asked to change med, but all will have the low sex drive proplem.

I have taken Celexa for 6 years now and it really helps me, and doesn't affect my sex drive, and doesn't make me sleepy. You must take it at least in time to get at least 6 or 7 hrs. sleep so you are not drowsy the next day. I am a female, but my best friend is a male, and he has taken it for years and it doesn't affect his sex drive either, may want to give it a try. Never have had suicidal thoughts either while taking this medication.

My husband takes Lexapro. One of the reasons he got on it was because of lack of interest in sex. He's fine now. Guess it worked the opposite than on most people. I take Wellbutrin and my drive is great too. Guess we are both just happily medicated people.
