http://www.cnn.com/2006/HEALTH/03/24...eut/index.html

This news article says that certain women who have taken anti-depressants have suffered unprovoked sexual stimulation, usually when least desired such as out in public or on the job, whatever...and that some women are even thinking of suicide because of it! Can you imagine what it would be like to just have a big O at Christmas dinner where the whole family is there, and you have to go dry yourself up?


Another story that my wife told me about yesterday that she learned at work at the Health Department (in an internal news briefing) is that there are cases being seen of people who take Lunesta...a sleeping drug...that are having what is called Sleep Eating. They actually get up and sleepwalk to the kitchen in the middle of the night and eat...and it has been video-recorded that one woman operated a stove and made an entire meal for herself...another woman gained 100 lbs...and the big news is that they did not know why they were getting fat! They had no idea that they were sleepwalking and eating. For some reason, this drug has just caused people to be hungry and go eat.

According to the article it's arousal, not stimulation, a slightly better embarrassing example would be asking her hubby for "help in the kitchen" and tackling him on the kitchen floor.

It's also true that women are prescribed far more anti-depressants than men. The problem is, diagnosing mental problems is, in most cases, far from objective. A man who exhibits dark moods and whatnot is "weird" in our society, whereas a woman needs a pill. It's one of those things where unconscious societal precepts affect diagnostics. Another example is, what might be quirky or absolutely irrelevant in another society can be seen as a deep psychosis in ours. Psychology is pretty murky, and can get freaky when powerful drugs are involved.

Question Mark

This is doubly weird because many people, both male and female, report a dramatic decrease in libido when taking antidepressants, especially serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

It is well-known that the drug clomipramine can induce orgasmic response when the patient yawns. [img]graemlins/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif[/img]

The results were mentioned as occuring after the patient stops taking the drugs, which is understandable, with a lack of chemical suppression on the libido I'm surprised a complete flip isn't more common.

That's all well and true, but I think we can explain this in a simpler fashion... There are more women in therapy than men. Again, this is because of society... Women are allowed to express their emotions and seek help, whereas men need to, you know, be men about it.
