I'm a victim of Lesbian Bed Death... My girlfriend works all the time and never bothers having sex with me anymore. It's been 2 months now and I've basically given up on the remote possibility of it happening again any time soon. I've tried having a talk with her about it, but that's a personal and completely separate issue. My concern here is that Wellbutrin is making it a HUGE problem because of how high my sex drive is now- I don't think it's ever been this high all the time before. Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution? My guess is there isn't really a supplement for that side effect alone, and nothing else about Wellbutrin has been an issue for me (Some irritability went awayafter the first week of it kicking in.) I can't switch to another anti-depressant- I've tried about 7 others including SSRI's (which I know would have the opposite effect) which were like placebos for me, and Wellbutrin has otherwise practically saved my life. (If there's no solution, I'll take no depression over no sexual frustration any day.)
Yes Wellbutrin can do this in fact this is one reason that they give it to people on other meds to increase there problems of lack of sex drive or not being able to perform.It kind of sounds like you and your partner are having some underline problems that you need to deal with. You might talk to your doctor and see if they have anything to offset this problem also But think it is time to have a good talk with your other half too and see what is going on. Best of luck to you none of this is easy.
It's also possible that when you were severely depressed, even while trying other AD's, that your natural sex drive was subdued and what you're feeling now is your normal level (which may seem excessive.
As Chuck says, though, this is kind of beside the point. Your real problem is with your relationship because ANY libido seems excessive when you're not getting ANY. If your partner wants to save this relationship she's going to have to start communicating with you and possibly consider counselling.
Best wishes and good luck, WCV
