Is your medication affecting your sex life?

Did you know that the medication you are taking could possibly affect your sex life negatively?

Some drugs can decrease your stamina and desire. They include some of these types of medications:

  • Antidepressants
  • Blood pressure medications
  • Birth control pills (some studies show a link; others don’t)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Anti-HIV drugs


Switching drugs or dosages may help — ask your doctor about that and never stop taking any medicine on your own. Tell your doctor, too, if your sex drive stalls soon after you start taking a new drug.

This is also where a healthy, mostly plant based diet can help. Not only for sexual desire and stamina but for general good health. Work towards having a lifestyle that counteract some of the unwanted side effects of medication. See Aphrodisia for some foods that can help increase your sexual stamina and desire.
