    Wondering if anyone has any experience with cialis, particularly when taking it because a psych med impaired your libido?

    Cialis does nothing for your libido, it only bolsters your ability to easily achieve an erection. That strong boner doesn't do a whole lot for you if you don't even feel like having sex.

    What psych meds are we talking about here?

    This. In another life many years ago I'd take it when drinking heavily. It optimises your plumbing, but does nothing for desire. I also got terrible headaches from a full tablet. Half worked fine though with no sides. No idea about its interaction with psych meds.

    If it's your psyche causing your inability to get hard, no amount of cialis/viagra will help with stimuli. It merely causes additional vasodilation of your blood vessels and relaxation of smooth muscle tissue so it can't clamp as hard, so to speak in a non technical term. If your psyche meds are messing up your libido, see your Doc/psychiatrist.

    It’s like I feel like having sex, I’m just not sure I could perform because I feel a change in the dick. Not feeling the same rise when I see women that I am attracted to and feel that pull towards...The medicine is lithium.

    I use it in liquid form in my preworkout. I take a very small dose compared to what you would use for "performance". It's pretty damn effective... especially for cardio.

    You should have a discussion with your prescribing physician about the effects of the therapy. Ask them if there are other options that may have less likelihood to have sexual side effects.
