If you feel you need the Prozac, hang on for a bit before you dicontinue it. There may be other options: other anti-depressants may have less effect on sex drive or it may be possible to add something to the Prozac to counteract the loss of sex drive. There was a discussion here about this in December, I think, and you may get some tips if you take a look at Dr. Bob's Psychopharmacology Tips
discussion group. Your own doc may have some ideas, or perhaps one of the docs here can comment. Another idea: is the lack of sex drive for the last 10 years, or only since the hysterectomy? If the latter, does your hormone replacement regimen include testostrone? Some women lose sex drive at menopause or after a hysterectomy because they no longer have the small amount of testosterone the ovaries produce. There are hormone replacement combos on the market that contain testosterone, so you might want to talk to your gyn if the problem dates from the surgery. Good luck!

> My problem is absolutely no sex drive at all. I have been on prozac for 10 years with very good results. Three years ago I also had a complete hysterectomy. I am taking estrogen replacement therapy. I am happily married, but I feel bad about my total lack of interest in sex. I have decided to go off the prozac hoping it will help. Has anyone else had a similar experience. Help...
