Re: Sex and ADHD

At least you're not sitting up suddenly to look at a bird that just flew by the window, and giving your partner the hardest head-butt to the forehead...Not just that I get easily distracted and lose the focus but also I tend to be clumsy as well.

Re: Sex and ADHD

I would say that I have an abnormally high sex drive. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 - 3 times a day. I've never taken medication for ADHD, so can't answer that part.

Re: Sex and ADHD

I used to have a very high sex drive, started taking straterra, 'evened' it out a bit. But I have always been interested in trying lots of new things in sex. Im thinking this aspect is related to adhd?

Re: Sex and ADHD

I wish mine would go away. Adderall makes it more intense!

Re: Sex and ADHD

46, 50mg of Vyvance. Lowered my sex drive significantly. I would, in the past take a Viagra, Cialis, etc just for the extra oomph with my wife with absolutely no side effects. After being on Vyvance I noticed that my drive was way down...way way down. I was even having difficulty achieving / maintaining an erection. I would pop an enhancement pill and there it is. but I would not sleep for hours....like eventually falling asleep around 4:30 and having to get up for work at 6:30. Didn't put the 2 together for a while but I started noticing a pattern. Even 10mg Cialis and I would not fall asleep. Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, even over the counter stuff you buy at Walgreens. would not sleep.
Wife was away for about 10 day watching our new nephew and I didn't take meds. When she got I had no trouble achieving or maintaining erection. By the way, before meds I had no problem here.
Has any body else experienced no sleep side effect? or any other major side effects on Vyvance? well, besides ED?

I used to think that too. 50 mg of Vyvance and I can't maintain an erection, that's if I can even get one. before meds I was a beast. Now? We've had to come to terms with stuff. My wife thought I was having an affair, or that I wasn't attracted to her any more. nope...but now i can put 2 sentences together with out being distracted. and I can listen to her and conversate. Looking at different meds to get over the ED. it does stink, but I have noticed intimacy in other areas. Like I can hold her with out getting an erection in the first 10 seconds. and just wanting sex ALL THE TIME

Re: Sex and ADHD

i have the libido of the God of Sex (Cupid's evil twin brother Jason Todd maybe?).

i just have urges to...orgasm. dont know why. whenever im in public and see a girl (especially if it's a girl i know/friends with) who is in very sexy clothes (like yoga pants, a g-string popping out of their pants, very skintight clothes) i get a cold rush of blood into my head and feel weird.


Adderall does NOT help it at all.

Re: Sex and ADHD

From personal experience, VERY HIGH sex drive. My ex and I would go for 1-2 hours at a time and sometimes I'd go back for seconds. I remember on my birthday about 3 years ago my brother had all of his friends over. Anyway, my gf at the time and I went to my room and did our thing. About an hour and a half later she goes upstairs to get a drink and all of those friends were saying things like "WERE YOU REALLY HAVING SEX THAT ENTIRE TIME?" and "Damn! I can only go for about 15 minutes"

Needless to say, she came back and we went right back at it. Its a blessing, but I haven't had any sexual contact in over a year which is so frustrating. My libido is out of control

Maybe its different for us all but I have never ever had a low interest in sexual activities. Any time the offer was on the table I felt like a kid on Christmas regardless of the situation, place, or time

I used to have a pretty high sex drive, now I have absolutely zero. My relationship is really difficult! I used to have a healthy sex drive, then I don't know what happened... I'm on methadone and dexedrine, which makes it worse I know, but I was ok on these up until a few months ago?! Now I have zero!

What can anybody do that REALLY ACTUALLY increases sex drive?

I have trouble with focus during, but I always have and it didn't used to matter...
