I hate being tired all the time and my sex drive is non-existent...I've been on sooo many different antidepressants and one is not better than the other. I need to be on something or my depression tanks but I also want to love my boyfriend. idk what to do.

      i understand completely!! i was on lexapro when i started dating my bf and every time we did something sexual i just couldn’t enjoy it or rly feel it. i got off my antidepressants thinking it would help, but i don’t think it really made a big difference. i am a bit better now bc we’ve been dating awhile and i just feel more comfortable with him in general, but i still struggle with like physically getting turned on. like mentally i feel there, but then the second something physical happens it usually goes away or goes down. just take ur time getting comfortable with him and the things u do. start off slowly for sure and communicate with him about how u feel so he knows to stop anything at any given moment. if he has any problems with it, break up w him. he should know to respect ur boundaries. like i can tell my bf gets a little frustrated but at the end of the day he still respects me and will listen to whatever i say, even if i change my mind. just work with him and find out what’s best for both of u!

      If you've tried a bunch of different treatments and none have worked for a long time, it's possible it's the wrong diagnosis and/or you need a different treatment plan

      That’s so frustrating. If you’ve been trying different type recently your body could be kind of exhausted from adjusting to all of it. When it comes to your sex drive I tried to remove the pressure from it and also do things that used to trigger it. If you feel so bad you could try doing things with him that are just about him. Explain that you arent super in the mood for sex but want to make him Feel good.
