Default Sex Drive...gone...where did it go?!?

Hello!

I looked in hopes I didn't have to ask! But is it just me or has anyone else completely lost their "want" for sex?!?! And any helpful ideas?!

This hasn't been an issue before in my marriage and since starting suboxone I could care less! HELP!!!

Hi peanut, it's not an uncommon problem. Here are a bunch of threads that talk about it:

As you can see, it's been talked about quite a bit here.

It melted in your mouth with that funny tasting pill.

Hang in there, it comes back as you lower your dose and work through your recovery.

I was on the opposite end, Sub increased mine, but no, your not alone at all. Those links will have some good advice in them.

It has affected my drive too. To what degree, I don't know as age is starting to take its toll as well.

For me it came back as I got below 4mgs/day. Then once I was off completely it all came back in full force within a week. For me it worked out, it let me concentrate on getting better.

Thank you for your responses!! It has been a strange but VERY good few months of no norco and Suboxone! Luckily I haven't really noticed much more of side effects!!

Hi peanut. My husband and I are both on Suboxone and he has the same problem. His doctor prescribed him some cialis and that has helped a lot. Maybe your docotr can do the same? Talk to them about it. Deanna
