My sex drive has increased the past couple if weeks. I did start my period yesterday and I do get that way before but it's never that much. What's wron?

Wrong?: Something may be different, but that's not always wrong. It could even be a combination of inputs that include a positive variation from usual.

If you wish, have an exam to eval hormone level balance then consider counseling to learn sex-related self-mgmt and assertiveness skills. Read more

My doctor has prescribed Evion 400 mg twice daily for increased sex drive. Is it safe to take 2 daily?

I am not sure if it really improves sex drive, unless you change the underlying reasons causing the lack of it. No Vitamin or medication taken in excess is safe. Twice a day of Evion is OK if you believe it works for you. Introspection is better Read more

Hi. I thought one of cymbalta's side effects was a decreased sex drive but why has mine increased? I'm not sexually active but its weird.

Side effects vary: Yes, you are correct, common side effects of cymbalta include decreased libido and anorgasmia. However, it is possible if you were suffering decreased libido due to depression, and cymbalta relieved some of your depression, your libido (sex drive) has come back. It is also possible that you are experiencing an idiosyncratic side effect (specific to you). Check with your prescribing doctor. Read more
