Hi, Peter.

Thanks for your reply.

In the past, I don't remember Nardil reducing my sex drive, but I can't be sure. I had been taking lithium and Crestor (rosuvastatin). Both drugs are reported to reduce sex drive and testosterone levels. Crestor definitely reduces my sex drive, but not so much that it is worth risking my cardiovascular health. Lithium didn't seem to make much difference. However, when I discontinued it for a few days, I relapsed into severe depression. I don't like the idea of taking testosterone, but I don't think it would represent any risk. Testicular atrophy isn't a major concern of mine at age 62.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
