high serotonin levels cause loss of sex drive?

I'm a few months from 21. I've speculated that I might have Prostatis or Cystitis that made me lose my sex drive, but after some research, I think it's because of high serotonin levels.

High levels of serotonin (found in Prozac)hinders sex drive and reduces emotions/ feeling in general. Thinking about it, I used to be sort of nervous/anxious all the time, and it suddenly stopped. I haven't been taking any prozac or similar medication, rather I have matured mentally that's why I don't feel anxiety or any much emotion at all. I think my body raised serotonin levels naturally for some reason.

Thus, I have low libido. What should I do? Shit, I miss being horny all the time.

Wow, I am 26, and agree with everything you've said. Used to be very nervous, and when that all went away for the most part, totally lost my drive. There has got to be something to that ... do medical professionals know of this correlation? I'm hoping. If anyone has same experience, please post. I want to know if there is something more to this.

Serotonin is a feel-good neurotransmitter, and too much can negatively affect the sex drive. Antidepressants can lower libido.

There are other neurotransmitters at work - dopamine is the 'reward' neurotransmitter, and people with high dopamine can get hypersexual, or go on shopping binges, lose impulse control.

There are lots of other neurotransmitters involved with sex and libido - oxytocin, GABA, etc. No one chemical completely controls it - it gets very complicated. But mess up any one of them, and it can cause problems.

I thought about this a few months ago but dismissed the theory, but I have the exact same problem. During this year I've become much more relaxed, much more comfortable in socials settings etc, but the more relaxed and comfortable I get the more my sex drive seems to drop. If other people have had the same experience, maybe it's not so far fetched that there might be a causal correlation. Since serotonin / dopamine are the "feel good" chemicals, and those can affect the sex drive, the idea that they might be the cause of both might not be so far fetched. Damn...

Definitely is a correlation. My girlfriend was on some pill to make her relax. We're both going thru some rough times (not with each other) so she gave some pills to pop to calm down. Her prescribing doctor did say that it will cause a drop in libido. From a guys prepective where low libido is usually linked to stress, popping half a pill made me relax enough to increase libido. More than that and it went the other way. But check out my counter attack on the horny goat weed issue. Seems to work for me.

I have used http://goodgeneric.com for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I can recommend http://qgeneric.info . Had business with them for over a year and never had any major problems. They can be slow at sending the order, but it always get there, and their customer service is great, always someone to talk to if their is a issue. Will do business with them again.

I tried generic Viagra from http://ed-airstorepills.info It helped me greatly. This is the most reliable and trusted online pharmacy you could ever think of. They perfectly work! I have found them very good value for money.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://edx-airstorepills.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
First time I took Viagra from http://edx-airstorepills.info it took 30 to 40 mins to work. Work very well for me with no side effects. Was able to have sex more then once. My partner is also very pleased with the results.

My antidepressant has significantly reduced my anxiety and depression, and even amplified my overall sexual desire, but at a cost of debilitating my ability to have orgasms. It's really weird: I have early morning erections for the first time in decades, find potential sex partners more desirable than ever, and walk around with a constant moderate buzz, but actually getting off is a real chore. I think maybe I should stop worrying about the Big O and enjoy the other sensations for their own sake.

I ordered Cialis soft tabs from http://goo.gl/I9xquY once in the past and they arrived in about 2 weeks, no customs payable and they seem as good as the non generic product. An acknowledgment of my order would have been nice but when i phoned them they were polite and reassuring. I used the trackable service.

Always great to purchase online from a site that actually delivers what you order. I was more than happy with the service from http://goo.gl/qJ3Zrx and the pills worked as expected. For genuine generic medication, this is the place to be. I'll stick with what I know for the future.

My first order from http://goo.gl/v57z83 went well. The pills worked great. For my second order I ordered a larger quantity and the pills had no affect altough customer service was very helpful and sent a replacement order and the pills worked. I just placed my third order (with 10% off for the repeat discount).
I lost $180 at a different site before these guys so I was happy to find the good reviews and have two sets of pills work great (after the replacement). If this order goes well I will place a larger order so I don't have to order so frequently.

I'm 37, my husband is 63. We tried Viagra and it works. We decided to try Cialis from RXPILL911 . COM this past weekend just to compare the two. Cialis is unbelievable, None of the headaches or side effects that he would get from the Viagra and they really mean it when they say it lasts 36 hours. It is a little expensive, but well worth every penny to see your husbands confidence restored. Ladies take it from a VERY satisfied wife you wont be leaving the house for the entire weekend so get everything you need before he takes the pill. Life is good!
Cialis from RXPILL911 . COM worked great! Took the first dose and an hour later got a firm and lasting erection. Made love to my wife like never before. Did cause delayed ejaculation, but my wife did not complain. Headache and heartburn improved after about 5 days of use. Definitely recommend.

just take these two things;
empty stomach. Increase dose to 2 tablets once you get used to the herbs.

Gotu kola.400mg
Rhodiola Rosea 500mg 3%+ standardized.

chinese emperors sent their horseman thousands of miles to get rhodiola root so they can enjoy their hundreds of concubines.

south asian emperors loved gotu kola for practicing kama sutra.

if you are single youd want to fuck food items in fridge and your friends gfs or bfs and wives or husbands. lol
