For a lot of folks, antidepressants can be a powerful tool in fighting depression.
Especially for those who respond well to chemical stimulation on the brain. The meds can target certain areas which stimulate the production of serotonin, “teaching” the brain how to fabricate happy hormones once again.
However, this learning process is slow; usually antidepressants only start having an effect after weeks, and doctors recommend patients to take it for at least six months to a year to reap the full benefits. This means that antidepressants are not a short-term solution.
This can be a bit of an issue because one of the most common and universal side effects of antidepressants is a decrease in libido. Even if the most modern drugs have lighter side effects, this seems to be a widely reported consequence of being on antidepressants.
For many, this is a frustrating paradox - while the meds can help boost energy and treat depression, especially in severe cases, it hinders one’s sex drive which is already impacted by depression. So for many people, to be on antidepressants is the precise opposite of being horny & sad.
But even if sex-drive itself isn’t altered, many report other issues, such as delayed orgasms and/or difficulty to reach the climax, and problems with erection and vaginal lubrication.
The good news is; these effects are not permanent! Thankfully, everything should be restored soon after the patient leaves the medication. However, as we have mentioned, this is a long treatment - and people don’t have to wait to be off antidepressants to have a healthy sex life.
