From the forum mcgrad asks: "Someone please help! I think that not wanting sex is a symptom of depression. Does anyone else have this problem? I do not care about sex. I used to. I just got a prescription for Lexapro and since a lots of meds have sexual side effects I'm scared that this may make my situation worse. My boyfriend is very frustrated about this and does not understand. He understands my depression because he has it too, but he does not understand not wanting sex. Any suggestions, info etc.?"
