Check out these numbers: nearly 190 million antidepressant prescriptions were dispensed in the United States last year, according to the National Institute for Mental Health. Antidepressants are put into groups based on which chemicals in the brain they affect. Susie discusses several antidepressants - including Celexa, Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft - that are called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). Are you taking one of these? Susie looks at these drugs' sexual side effects, including loss of libido. That's not acceptable! Your orgasm is not a commodity that big pharmaceutical companies should have a financial hold on. Susie gets into some hot water for giving advice on these holy drugs. Don't mess with my mother's little helper seems to be the attitude. Susie is outraged!
Then, in the "Try This at Home" mailbag, a listener shares his feelings about people who have sex in the face of death. That's right - it's relief in a time of grief.
