  • nortriptyline Side effects

    My Gp has prescribed me nortriptyline 10mg. What side effects are common ? My wife is worried if it will effect my libido

    Google is your friend, of course, and there are an enormous number listed in the BNF, probably because of the conditions for which it is prescribed. If it works, then the easing of depression might increase libido. I don't think I've ever heard of it turning anyone into a sex fiend. Equally, I think it's highly unlikely to reduce libido.

      It is interesting on how most of those seeking advice about psychotropic meds are so worried about effect on their sex life.

          As I know it affects a little. Tricyclic antidepressants inhibit sexual desire and orgasm. For example, clomipramine causes orgasmic difficulties in up to 90% of patients, while nortriptyline causes more erectile dysfunction but has less effect on orgasm. 25. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors are also associated with sexual dysfunction. So she has a good reason to worry, but your cycle is not forever, so you can take cialis https://espanolcialis.net in this period to continue having sex with your wife.
