I have low libido. Is there anything that I can take? I have been so engrossed in work lately that I have just no interest in sex any more.

It sounds like you might have answered your own question - if you are so engrossed in work that may be a reason for your low libido. There are, however, many reasons for a loss of libido (e.g. depression, side effect of medication/drugs, illness, relationship problems, physical health issue) and so the reason for this needs to be established in order to decide how to treat it... Whenever there is a change in your functioning, it's usually for a reason, and it's worth checking this out to see (a) if there is a problem and/or (b) if you can do something about it. Just like if you are tired, taking caffeine/stimulants is not the long term solution, the solution is in making changes or treating whatever the cause of the tiredness is! The same applies to sexual desire...
