Default Meds and other drugs that counteract loss of libido or that increase libido

What have people found useful for this?
i personally like to help people with information on drugs i find help stimulate and increase libido and wanted to share them with others who are having issues in that area

I find

Lorazepam
Diazepam
Zopiclone (all in moderate to high doses) help enhance libido

Kratom- in a small to moderate dose is the best aphrodisiac i have ever taken
MXE, yet to try it but the side effects rate high on increased libido


Ritalin- i have tried it and although i hated it and it made me bipolar it does increase sex drive depending on the mood you are in but for severe ADD its said to be good although i hear Dex and Vvynase are better for that

Other suggestions?
Viagra
Wellbutrin
Agolmentine

Of all those, Wellbutrin is the only one I've tried and I agree that it does stimulate libido and pleasure.

I didn't take it while on SSRI. I wish I would've.

I agree Wellbutrin does increase libido to a very large degree, as does Trazodone. But I couldn't handle Wellbutrin because it was too stimulating for me. And Trazodone, well, let's just say it can work to well to the point of giving men Priapism.

Memantine and Yohimbine both improve sexual functioning/drive.

Wellbutrin alleviated my fluoxetine-induced loss of libido. Maybe too effectively.
Low-dose kratom may work in yohimbine-like manner, via alpha2-antagonism.

There might have been Flibanserin (for women only) but FDA stopped it.

Low doses of naltrexone, naltrexone is prosexual

D2 agonist like requip, cabergoline (they increase dopamine transmission and decrease prolactin which is main cause of dysfunction, cabergoline is better)
Maca is a supplement that is proven is studies to enhance libido (have copy of it somewhere I got when I attended psychiatry association convention) couldn't find it but here is the abstract from pub med
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18801111
I've tried it myself and it works.
Tribulus
Wellbutrin
Vitamin b6 (lowers prolactin which is the main cause of ssri sexual dysfunction, will wake up with wood haha)

Also google "libido prolactin" & "ssri prolactin" and you'll see what I'm talking about

Yep. I think it's worse for men but it happens to women too. I'd stay away from that stuff.

Yes, Wellbutrin is used specifically for that. Although makes you wonder why they don't just switch people from SSRIs to Wellbutrin. Maybe it also enhances the antidepressant effect. I'm never taking Paxil again though. Or any of the other ones for that matter.

Some herbs for "vitality" like Tribulus, licorice, and others can raise blood pressure, so if you on Ritalin or some amphetamine (which also raises BP), you might want to monitor the situation.

Had heard about prolactin. This will be helpful. Thanks Mr. T. B6 too aye?

Yea google "vitamin b6 prolactin".

Note that natural vitamin b6 (pyridoxal hydrochloride) does not suppress prolactin, only pyridoxine hydrochloride can suppress prolactin.

Effects of pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin b6) on chlorpromazine-induced serum prolactin rise in male rats
Quote:
To investigate if vitamin B6 inhibits prolactin release and to compare this effect to that of bromocriptine, a known suppressor of prolactin release, a study was conducted in male rats. Animals were pretreated with pyridoxine hydrochloride, pyridoxal hydrochloride, saline, or bromocriptine 30 min prior to receiving varying doses of chlorpromazine hydrochloride. Blood samples were obtained 90 min later and analyzed for serum prolactin by a double-antibody radioimmunoassay. Another study involved pyridoxal hydrochloride and saline pretreatments 30 min prior to doses of chlorpromazine hydrochloride. Blood samples collected 60 min later were also analyzed for serum prolactin. Pyridoxine hydrochloride significantly suppressed the chlorpromazine-induced prolactin rise (p less than 0.01). However, the suppression was significantly less than that produced by bromocriptine (p less than 0.01). Pyridoxal hydrochloride, another natural form of vitamin B6, failed to suppress prolactin under the conditions of both studies. This investigation may lend support to the concept that pyridoxine hydrochloride partially inhibits prolactin by a mechanism not involving dopamine.
It doesn't lower prolactin by increasing dopamine like a d2 agonist and obviously isn't as effective. It uses some other mechanism to lower prolactin.

Some of these are opiate antagonists Kratom, Naltrexone), so is it only for use if you are taking a benzo or something like that for example?

Dexedrine or ritalin depending but for some it makes libido worse..but if it works it works well! Mirapex was also something that gave me awesome effects libido wise. As for me ritalin made my libido go up alot but now on dexedrine and it doesn`t help it and I think it lowers my libido somewhat

yeah to the above post, both my husband and i tried ritalin at different stages and it both decreased our sex drive drastically, since it caused mega mood swings and anxiety.

Crazymed, where can you get naltrexone?
Yeah we use kratom and it definitely enhances drive but not ejaculation
yohimbine was useless and made us both sweaty and get headaches

Viagra is great for ED and long lasting sex but thats not the issue

are there any medications that speed up ejaculation?
the meds that have got us in the mood dont speed up the ejaculation process, it still takes around 20-30mins to reach climax (not for me because when i take kratom and use different lubes its all good but it takes ages for my husband unfortunately) this was before he was on meds
