My dr. suggested I try this drug, but I am skeptical. Since being on SSRI's, I have no libido or desire to have sex. It's playing a toll of our marriage. Please help.

A side-effect of symmetrel is "increased libido including hypersexuality"
Amantadine is used to treat sexual dysfunction associated with antidepressants.
It would be worth trying given that it is affecting your marriage.

I was never told about this drug but it is interesting. My libido and sex drive also took a toll starting with taking zoloft. Went to Welbutrin from there, which helped somewhat, but started getting anxiety attacks and am now on Effexor. I did get my testosterone checked with the Effexor to find out that I was below the mark. Have started testosterone replacement and am midrange now which has helped with sexual libido and drive. I know how hard that this can be on a marriage and hope that you will find some help.
