Anti-nausea drugs reduce libido?


Question from Jessie: Do some anti-nausea drugs reduce libido? What can be done?
Answers - Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. The drug Compazine (chemical name: prochlorperazine) is the main one that can reduce desire. It increases the hormone prolactin and also can be tranquilizing. The newer anti-nausea drugs may not have many sexual side effects.
