It seems that sense I have ben on meds for PTSD my sex drive has all but stoped . I do understand that as you get older it will slow down. I am not 18 any more I am 48. My wife is begining to wonder what is wrong . It is not her . I am a hedrosexual . It is not that I have trouble haveing an erection . it is that I have no disire. So what is wrong ?

Mike, some antidepressant meds can cause decrease in sexual desire. Zoloft, for example does it.

I would tell you to search in google the med you take and its side effects.

I know for me prozac caused me to have a low desire for sex. I have decided to try and deal with my PTSD and all the rest of the crap in my life w/out the med's.

One think for sure is my sexual desire is back and I and my GF are glad about that. I know for me the med's sure did screw up my desires and also my emotions.

I use a decongestant nasal spray, looked up the effects and lowering of sex drive was one. Just thought I'd mention to look at everything, it could be something you'd never expect.
