There are quite a lot of medications available in the market to improve your sex life and there are also some drugs that ruin your sex life.

Your sexual complications such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, and delayed orgasms, is possibly due to nothing but all because of some prescribed medication you are taking, which can screw up your sex life in ways more than one.

Antidepressants Slow down Orgasms  

The Antidepressants you are taking for the treatment of major depressive disorder and of other conditions can put the lid on the mood in the bedroom. According to a number of studies, antidepressants killed the mood for sex in many. If you are on these medications, you might have trouble reaching orgasm as they delay your ejaculatory response.

Apart from trouble in orgasm, the drugs may also lower your testosterone, which can impede with your ability to get off. Other antidepressants seem to be safer for your orgasm.  

Sleeping Pills Result in Priapism  

Sleeping pills may help you fall asleep, but it also leads to priapism, an erection that lasts more than four hours. Staying hard for prolonged time period would simply mean that the blood is trapped in the penis. In the absence of proper treatment, this condition can lead to severe pain, tissue damage, and even permanent erectile dysfunction.

Medical Marijuana Lead to Ejaculation Problems   

While medical marijuana is credited with improving nerve pain and nausea, it may also lead to some difficulties in the bed while sexually active. According to a survey published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men who used marijuana on a regular basis were more likely to have both premature ejaculation and delayed ejaculation.

Painkillers Diminish Testosterone Levels  

A painkiller that you are taking to heal pain sensation can direct your brain cells to produce less testosterone which in turn can kill your libido and make it difficult for you to get a boner.

Blood Pressure Medications Lead to Erectile Dysfunction  

If you are suffering from high blood pressure, then you have no option other than taking medications. But in result it is not only controlling your blood pressure but also is causing erectile dysfunction. Beta-blockers lower BP by meddling with your sympathetic nervous system and diuretics help relax blood vessel walls. While that’s a piece of good news for your heart, these medications can also bring down blood flow to your penis, making it difficult to get hard.
