O/T but a common O/T Sex Drive

Bless My poor DH's Heart.

We are damned if we do and damned if we don't where the sex drive is concerned lately. My doctor has put me on Topomax to help prevent my migraines...and with it my sex drive has fallen to the sub basement levels. I have NONE. I don't want it. Don't even want to think about it. Things that used to get me hot are totally just "eh".

Then there is DH with him MS meds. So, yeah, he wants sex...but that doesn't mean he is going to be able to finish even if we do have it.

The extent of intimacy I am interested in...holding hands, maybe a cuddle...MAYBE. If he goes for the boobs or the coochie one more time, I may break his fingers. Sigh. I won't. But Sigh. That is all. just a wee bitch.

He is on blood pressure meds.

He is on blood pressure meds. But we are pretty sure the not finishing is the MS. It's a nerve response thing.

I was on Topomax for

I was on Topomax for migraines years ago. One of the side effects listed is kidney stones, and sure enough, I got them. I went off it, and never had another kidney stone.

Worked decently for my migraines, but thankful I don't get them anymore. Woohoo!

I'm glad it's working for

I'm glad it's working for you. It was one of the many anti-depressants I tried and for me, it earned the nickname "Dopamax" because I could not string two sentences together.

Prozac killed my drive almost completely.
