I'm a 27 year old female. My issues are primarily anxiety, maybe some depression. My mood swings are terrible. I go from 0 to 60 with rage over petty things. I also have low energy most of the time. My doctor gave me Prozac today and I am afraid to take it. I am afraid it is going to interfere with my sex drive and ability to have an orgasm. My sex drive is currently on the high end of the spectrum, but not extreme. I am also on birth control, which does not seem to impact my drive very much. I just want to know other women's experiences with Prozac, anxiety, and labido.
When I took Prozac years ago it didn't affect my sex drive at all or ability to have an orgasm. You're not going to know unless you try it though. ..obviously. Everyone is different. You do need to see a psychiatrist if you aren't already. Medical doctors don't have the experience in this field. You want to be sure you are diagnosed correctly before the medicine is prescribed. I took Prozac for depression but it can help greatly with anxiety. Your libido, etc. is very important but so is getting that rage under control and improving your quality of life. Best of luck to you!
