Yes, this type of medication can lead to a decrease in sexual desire. To make a diagnosis of sexual dysfunction due to the use of substances and drugs, it is first of all necessary to evaluate, by history, physical examination or laboratory data, if the presence of symptoms is prior to the use of these substances and have a persistence of a fairly consistent duration, of at least a month, even after the interruption from the assumption, and above all if there are other factors that can bring back the dysfunction to psychological factors independent from the use of drugs.
