amitriptyline and libido
Mar 16, 2003

Ever since I had a stem cell transplant two years ago for AIDS-related Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, it has been an uphill battle to reclaim my previous libido. I'm doing testosterone and levels are fine. Recently I started low-dose (10 mg) amitriptyline for sleep interuptions. A friend then said that this can cause reduced libido. Is this true, and would 10 mg. have such an effect? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

Although that is possible that low dose usually does not result in noticeable decreased libido. KH
