Alprazolam did that for me. It might not do it for others. At one point, I was tempted to go see another doctor with a fake story especially made up to be prescribed Alprazolam so I could get my sex drive back, but I didn’t as it only last while I was taking it. It’s not a cure, just a side effect of Alprazolam.
As for the carnivore diet, you get a very large amount of all kinds of amino acids, including L-Carnitine which increase the density of androgen receptors. May be that’s why it did something to me.
Here’s what I found on Alprazolam: Quote: "Alprazolam or Bromazepam - If you have stopped finasteride recently, and feel that your metabolism is in a state of chronic anxiety (insomnia, poor sleep, panic attacks, irritability, mood swings, extreme anxiety, restlessness, difficult concentration - a set of symptoms known as post-finasteride crash), the use of one of these medications can help. Finasteride blocks the conversion of progesterone to allopregnanolone, which has a calming effect in the brain. Allopregnanolone acts by modulating a neurotransmitter called GABA-A. Therefore, the use of finasteride can affect the level of GABA-A in brain. Since these drugs act on GABA replacement, they are beneficial to these patients. Furthermore, by acting on the anxiety and improving sleep quality, the use of one of these drugs will help reverse another problem common in some men with Post-Finasteride Syndrome. Many complain their penises display a much smaller size and more rigid consistency when flacid than before finasteride (known as shrinkage in Propeciahelp forum). It is a dramatic change and usually patients who are in this state after finasteride usage also present lack of nocturnal erections and smaller erections. It is important to break this cycle, because if a man is not having nocturnal erections for a long time, this can lead to structure problems in the penis. When one of these medication is used to treat the post-finasteride crash, penis returns to normal size and consistency when flacid. The quality of sleep is restored, so this will also favour the reestablishment of normal nocturnal erections. It is really important to stop the crash symptoms and these medications work well in the matter.
It should be used for a short period (few months) and only if necessary, under the supervision of a psychiatrist. The withdrawal has to be gradual. " End quote
I have since used amino acids to work directly on the production of Allopregnanolone, 5ar and to re-balance my androgen receptors as well as the GABA (A) and Dopamine receptors. I believe the lack of sex drive has multiple origins. Like a table that felt because all four legs were separately and unequally cut down.
