Within the last couple months, I started to feel the need for sex at least twice a day. My Dr tried to cut back on my anti depressant but I began to feel more depressed. Now he wants to increase my Lamictal. Has anyone else had this problem. I tried not to focus on the urges, but doesn't always work.

I'm sorry you are going through this. I'm sure someone will be along with an answer to your question. Thankfully my depression means I have no sex drive at all which is a good thing.

I've been on 2 AD for the past 3 years. Previous to that I had only been on 1AD. My therapist wants to wean from both AD. But doesn't think I m ready right now. So there is hope that someday I'll have normal sexual urges for someone my age.
