    Does Tapazole affect Libido ?

    Has Grave’s disease been associated with a loss of sex drive? I don’t see this mentioned in the books I read.

    Bev: A decreased libido is generally associated with hypothryroid states, however, it takes energy to have a healthy sex drive and being hyperthyroid is very energy depleting.

    Bev,

    I didn’t find being hyper made me lose my drive. However, the meds for
    hyper produced this problem (Tapazole). I imagine PTU might work the
    same way.

    The Thyroid Sourcebook (Sara Rosenthal) lists loss of libido as a symptom of both hyper and hypo.

    Boy I tell ya it takes a strong man to put up with my “moods” or lack
    there of! somedays I think I should join a convent. :)
    I do think it has a lot to do with your thyroid levels, if I’m hypo
    it takes alot out of me to just vacuum the carpet!
    But, I’m hyper now.:-D

    After I had been on PTU for about a month, when my thyroid levels returned to normal, my libido skyrocketed. It is up and down, but mostly higher than I have experienced. I don’t think the low sex drive is necessarily from the PTU..I seem to have the opposite. ??? K

    Also, I cannot find PTU in a current PDR, if there is any place on line that has PDR references for this medication let me know, I guess when a drug is as old as ptu it drops out of the Physican’s Desk Reference. I am interested in how long I must avoid dietary iodine: is that for the rest of my life, or while just on PTU, or does iodine compromise a lasting remission.
