is this med.suppose to help you with your sex. cause I dont see that at all.
First, How long have you been on it?
To answer your question. The answer is not so simple. One of the major drawback of medicines like Prozac, Zoloft, and Celexa is that they cause some patients to have a low libido (sex drive). To remedy this, patients who are experiencing these symptoms the preferred agent is buproprion. Buproprion works similar to the other drugs but also has an affect on some other chemicals in the brain.
In general, buproprion is considered not to cause a lowering of sexual desire and has been shown in some to actually increase sex drive.
So I guess it probably wouldn't be used to make sex better or anything like that. I also don't think it would be used solely to increase desire. But it may help increase desire, it may also help reduce any anxiety someone might have in general. So if one of the problems is anxiety before sex, it could help.
The important thing to note is that if there are many reasons why people might have low desire. Buproprion won't fix anything if someone is unhappy in a relationship and it won't make you or your partner perform better.
I hope all that made sense.
