Wife uses too much medicine
My wife uses Ivedal, Urbanol, Serdep and enjoy a glass or two (3 tots) of whiskey at night. She also uses some herbal weight loss medication.

Could this be detrimental to her health as it is to our relationship? Her sex drive is non-exsistent.

Thanks

Herbal weight loss meds are not worth using at all. The combination of such drugs is not wise, especially when combined with alcohol ( which exaggerates the side-effects of the tranquillizers, and reduces the benefits of antidepressants ) she should see a psychiatrist ( or a new one ) for a second opinion, a fresh assessment, and a proper discussion of treatment options, fully admitting to her alcohol use.
Sex drive can be recuces by alcohol, and by each of these drugs, especially in combination
