It could be the combination of the two meds that is causing this nasty effect on your libido. I only take depakote (Epilim), and it has zero effect on my Libido. I have also always had very high Libido, and other meds have affected that - but not Depakote.
I am taking Lamictal & Depikote for Bipolar disorder. They seem to be helping in that category but my sex-drive and performance has been effected. Has anyone out these had similar experiences? I am seeing the pdoc Saturday - I will inquire because a healthy sex life is very important. My pdoc agrees with that. I just hate to go on Viagra or something like that. I have been taking some supplements, they help a little but not much. I used to have a very high sex drive and now I feel like an old man. Ideas? Bob
Maybe it's the combination, or perhaps the Lamictal? That would be my (non-professional, personal experience) guess ...
Good luck! I agree that a good sex life is VERY important.

Hope the pdoc has some advice for you. Surely there must be some natural alternative to viagra...we just need to search them out.
