I'm a 25 year old male so sex drive shouldn't be a problem in the first place lol but I recently tapered down quite a bit(.75mg/day) and noticed a dramatic increase in my sex drive. I have extremely vivid dreams about it, and I constantly find myself thinking about it. I'm assuming it's a good thing, but I'm also wondering if there's anything negative associated with it.

Years of opiates ruined my sex drive.
Once I got clean from all opiates, my sex drive exploded. I feel like I'm in high school again. Lol

I'm not a guy lol but that happens to women somewhat also....not thinking about it every single second but it's heightened a lot.

There's actually some threads about it here somewhere Noob, if u look around a bit or search you'll see what other past members have said about it. :)

A lot of men who take more than 1 mg a day seem to be on testosterone products. It sure worked for me. Any opiate, including Buprenorphine, will kill your libido. Not as bad as anti-depressants, but bad enough.

There has been a lot of discussion about testosterone replacement therapy. One of the problems with it is a larger chance of getting prostate cancer. I'm willing to take that chance to feel normal again.

Yeah reducing dose definitely helps with libido. And once you come off completely, libido skyrockets! And your partner only need tap you on the shoulder and you gotta change your jocks.

Enjoy it man.

I personally find that I have to keep reducing my dose in order to minimise Sub's effects on libido. I started on 12mg this time around and it knocked my libido somewhat, so I reduced down to 8 then my libido returned ... for a couple of months, then it died again. Now I'm down to 6mg and it's back with a vengeance.

Maybe this is how I'll end up reducing off Sub. I'll just keep reducing my dose to avoid the libido effects, until I'll end up off it.

Mind you, in the past there has been an addictive aspect to me chasing sex, so a hit to my libido isn't the WORST thing in the world. Sub kinda handles a couple of my addictions in that regard.
