  • Didn't effect it at all. But I am only on 25mg a day.

  • It did mine. It took several years for everything to get back to normal. Actually my sex drive is better than ever now. Zoloft always made me very angry.

  • Yes, it can. Must of the drugs in that class can effect sex drive.

  • How do you deal? Talk to your doctor about it. You may be able to change your prescription.

  • It didn't for me. Before my 5th child was born I had zero sex drive (in fact we were having sex maybe 2-3 a YEAR...still managed to have 4 kids during that time...I'm very fertile). After the 5th I had a tubal and went on Zoloft and I actually have a sex drive now. It's nice. For me I think it was more psychological. I was constantly scared I would get pregnant. After the tubal I haven't worried about it and the Zoloft made me feel so much better about everything else.
