Sex drive, Libido, Dysfunction


So this has probably been posted or asked about before but when I have looked there doesn't look to be that many posts, polls or people willing to share about this, I guess for a lot of people its an embarrassing subject.

I was just wondering what meds people have taken that have had the least sexual side effects. When I was on Sodium Valproate everything was fine, high sex drive and everything worked. The minute I switched to Lamictal it killed it totally. I know the job of the drugs are to stop the seizures (and mine aren't controlled) but side effects like this are causing me a lot of distress. I was hoping to hear what experiences others have had with drugs before I try and change again. x
