Isentress truvata lexapro zoloft causing sex drive loss?
Jul 10, 2012

My partner has gone from active to no sex since diagnosis last Feb 2012, unable to get erection, no desire. Should we be looking into mental counciling, sex therapy, or is it the drugs? Its been 6 months and I am one negative partner missing my lover. Dr. Says maybe the lexapro.

Response from Dr. Henry

There has been minimal association to date for decreased libido/impotence problems due to Truvada/ralregravir. HIV infection, stress, depression, low testosterone levels, and both Zoloft and Lexapro have been associated with decreased libido/impotence issues. KH
