However, the way they affect sufferers can be very different. If the depression was so severe as to cripple the person's sex drive, then the medications can help. However, they also may depress libido further. Your doctor can recommend whether or not you need to try something else - there are other medications, like Wellbutrin, that can treat depression while keeping libido intact. Finally, hormonal birth control ironically can make women feel like not having sex. Pills and patches can decrease the level of testosterone in the bloodstream, resulting in a loss of sex drive for some women. Experts seem to agree that the progestin present in many contraceptives is the culprit for loss of libido. Again, ask your doctor if there is a formulation you can try that will have less of an effect on your sex drive.
