Question: Serzone and female libido

 flipper_in_oz - Sat Jan 10, 2004 11:53 pm

Just curious if serzone has any detrimental effects on female libido. And is there anything that can help increase libido?

User avatar 1-10% of those taking serzone may experience decreased libido.

For more information please visit our serzone page.

As for treating decreased libido, it would be best to consult a gynecologist on the issue. Testosterone in superphysiologic levels has been shown to increase libido consistently. However there are many side effects to testosterone. Decreased libido has also been treated with sildenafil citrate (viagra). While anecdotal experiences have been described, there have been no reported controlled trials or other studies to document the efficacy of sildenafil.
