Methadone and libido
I have a question about methadone and sex drive. My boyfriend has been taking it for three months and has been off of it for four days now. How long will it take for him to feel himself again? His highest amount was 60mgs and he was at 60mgs for a week then started to decrease the amount. He was decreasing 5mgs a week. He is uncomfortable and his libido is non existent. I take it personally and feel like he is just bored having sex with me. He has wanted to have a threesome (something I entertained but am not at all interested in any more) and gets hard whenever the topic comes up and yet when it comes to me just initiating sex he usually gets irritated with me because he doesn't feel like it. We used to have sex twice a day and now I am lucky if we do it once a week, and the sex we have lasts seconds. I am sad and want to know if his libido will return or if I should look at it as a red flag in our relationship. Thanks!

Lowered sexdrive is one of the things listed as side effects for methadone, so thats probabely the answer. And being on it in the first place indicates that he is going through some heavy shit, which may also affect it.
not meaning to be mean or a jerk here ,but its gone. some folks are just that way and in order to have a healthy on going sexual life style it might be time to upgrade. sorry and i hope things change for you in a positive way.
