The drugs, they do nothing.

So I was a little perturbed to see someone link this post of mine with the description “Asexual prescribed drugs to cure it.” If you actually read the post, you’d notice that asexuality had absolutely nothing to do with the reason that I was prescribed Bupropion—in fact, the psych had and still has no idea that I am asexual. There’s no reason to mention it.

Anyway, I promised an update so here it is: as I hypothesized several months ago, the drug has had no effect on my level of sexual interest, attraction, arousal, ease/enjoyment of orgasm, or anything else related to sex. For that matter, I’m not totally sure it’s doing anything to help with anxiety (the real reason I’m taking it) either. It’s hard to tell the difference between that and the thyroid meds I started a few months later (anxiety is a symptom of thyroid problems), which have considerably more noticeable effects. My once ridiculously frequent migraines are finally GONE! I haven’t had a single one since I started, only light headaches, and my sleeping schedule (always a huge problem from as far back as I can remember) is really starting to normalize as well. Now, if only I hadn’t just sprained my ankle…
