So this is weird to have to say this. But I've been diagnosed as Bipolar for 5 years now, and I know one of the symptoms is hypersexuality. I feel like I'm constantly, um, ready to go if you know what I mean. Does anyone else have this problem and if so, what can you do to make it go away. I'm already on medication. I'm getting really annoyed with it.

  • Yep - very sexually stimulated these days. Im not terribly worried about it tho - this is a change from NO interest that lasted for many years.Be careful tho - you dont want an unexpected pregnancy, or an STD

  • This is strange to hear. I am a 24 year old female diganosed with Bipolar for almost 10 years now. My sex drive is darn near non-existant. I feel horrible about it. I want to have a healthy relationship (thank the gods my boyfriend is understanding!!). I know that he would like much more physical activity but I just don't have the drive and I don't want to fake the interest. I'm very attracted to my boyfriend and we have a wonderful relationship but our intimacy is minimal at best and I would like this to change. I also have Crohn's Disease and I was told that my CFS (brought on by the Crohn's) and malnutrition could be a factor. But that to me feels like there is no way around this. I'm pretty anti-drug and manage my Crohn's with vitamins and supplements such as a high EPA, DHA fish oil so going on a pill to increase my drive is out of the question (unless there is no other option).This is an issue that has been concerning me for years. I feel too young to not have this kind of energy. Any suggestions?

  • Yes! Have it and have had it most of my life. goes away with SSRI but then I have the delayed orgasm problem. Nothing seems to calibrate this problem! Diagnosed with bipolar II. Currently decreasing prozac (thought to be exascerbating mood swings) so sex drive out of control! And I'm married to someone with a chronically low sex drive! How did that happen?!?

  • I have helped a few people with bipolar and CFS. They actually have a common thread. Low Glutathione. Health food stores sell Glutathione in capsule form. But Glutathione cannot be eaten. The digestive tract will get rid of it. The body has to be given the precursors or building blocks to get the cell to manufacture Glutathione. Glutathione has to be manufactured at the cellular level. If your Glutathione levels are raised your bipolar and CFS will go away.

My 15 yr old daughter has Ultra rapid cycling BP & hypersexuality, which I'd REALLY like to put the brakes on, big time! Help?

  • Excellent question. Our bodies have the capability of manufacturing Glutathione. We need the building blocks or precursors for making it. The precursors are "bonded cysteine". When bonded cysteine enters the blood stream our cells use it to make Glutathione in every cell of the body. It's found in mother's milk. When newborn's drink it they make Glutathione. When they make Glutathione there immune system is elevated. White blood cells are our immune system cells. These white blood cells monitor Glutathione levels. When Glutathione is low our immune system will go low. When we raise our Glutathione levels our immune system is raised. Glutathione is fuel for the immune system. As adults we do not drink mothers milk. And bonded cysteine is missing from our diets. Therefore we are not manufacturing Glutathione. Thus the many diseases we see today are the result of low Glutathione. Allergies, Asthma, Cancer, High Blood pressure, CFS, Bipolar, MS, Lupus, Parkinson, Kidney failure, Liver diseases, etc. The Physican Desk Reference (PDR) is a reference book where only pharmaceutical drugs are found. There is a natural product called "Immunocal" that is listed in the PDR. A natural product listed among pharmaceutical drugs., is an amazing feat, since no natural products are found there. I have attached a copy of the PDR describing Immunocal. 1.The FDA indicates that Immunocal is clinically proven to raise Glutathione values.2.Notice what the FDA says that Immunocal should be used for under the subheading "Indications and Usage". Immunocal is a natural product with no side effects. Children as young as 10 months old are using it to fight Autism, any many other health challenges. Any questions feel free to let me know, I will be glad to assist.Dfarrish@starband.net
