I think an unusual issue here: has anyone experienced hypersexuality after *discontinuing* an antidepressant? I was on an maoi, and that itself isn't so common. The antidepressant lowered my interest and also made it impossible to..um.."finish". I stopped taking it a month ago, so it should be entirely out of my system. I'm just really puzzled! I've been divorced for 5 years from the love of my life, haven't thought of dating once since, and I have no wish to make impulsive decisions!

On the other hand maybe you have just been really sexually repressed on the medication and this is just your body regulating.

Haha! It being some sort of rebound did cross my mind! This is the first time in 5 years that I haven't been on an antidepressant at all (I am on lithium still, which in my case has been used as an anti-suicide adjuct). So my emotions are so very much more vivid and intense. Maybe all just my neurotransmitters trying to equilibrate.
