Surprising number of medications can affect sex drive for men and women

(WXYZ) - A surprising number of medications can affect sexual desire for men and women.

Anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, diuretics and drugs to fight high blood pressure.

Muscle relaxants, heartburn medicine and common antihistamines can also have side effects.

Pharmacists encourage patients to read up on side effects, but you won't find sexual side effects on any warning labels.

You can always talk with your doctor about options like reducing your dose, trying a different medication or even a drug holiday.
