My husband has been on suboxone for 2 year now and has suffered from lack of sex drive the whole time. After months of trying to figure out what the problem was, we finally decided it must be the medicine. He won't be off of it for several more months, but we are hoping that that will fix the problem. If anyone can attest to sex drive coming back or not after discontinuing suboxone, that would be helpful information.

Suboxone is an opiate,albeit a screwed around with opiate.All opiates kill the sex drive.It always comes back with a vengeance when the opiate is discontinued.I think that's why they call it heroin...it is your girl so you don't need one when your on it.

I have been on several forms of narcs over the years, sex drive you have to remember is 90% physical for men.....I have struggled in my marriage with lack of sex drive. It was well before he meds. Now I am not telling its the ladies fault at all. The sex has gotten better since we started spicing things up in the boom boom room. Now am I like I was when I was in my twenties NO. but we can all take a page from our twenties repuatuar and keep it new and keep the meds under control and only use them as prescribed.
