Hi Eric.

> Scott, I disagree.

What is it that you disagree with?

> I hunted down a med regimine that did not disturb my sex drive.

As have I in the past. In fact, MAOIs had increased my sex drive beyond what had been my historic normal baseline level. The increased activity that it facilitated gave me great pleasure.

> And given the choice between an activity that brings great joy and pleasure and a medication that robs me of that pleasure, I'll choose joy anytime.

You might not say that if your only source of joy is the lack of depression, regardless of how your treatment affects your libido. Unfortunately, I am currently in a position of having to choose between depression with its attendant diminished libido and a major improvement in depression with no libido at all. It's a hell of a choice to have to make, but I'll choose remission of depression anytime. Perhaps as I approach remission, I will recover some small amount of sex-drive.
