Ayurveda/Complete loss of libido


I have been on antidepressant and antipsychotic. Now my libido is completely gone. My doctor gave me Viagra and it didn't have any effect. I tried 100 mg. Are there any herbs that can help? I have Ashwaghanda and used it for some days and gave it up because it didn't work.

Dear Jim

Because of many antidepressant chemicals your body s natural responses are altered. Don't use any short cuts like viagra. It has some specific function in certain conditions not suitable for every purpose.
It will take time to get your natural responses back, get relationship counselling sessions which will help you in arousals. Ashwagnadha you can use there are few other herbs also which are little helpful but might not be available in your country.
