Ozzy Osbourne admits he has no sex drive due to his antidepressants

Ozzy Osbourne, 74, has admitted he is not a fan of the side effects he’s experienced while taking antidepressants.

Speaking on his podcast, The Osbournes, the Black Sabbath hitmaker spoke about mental health and that he takes medication to cope with his anxiety and PTSD surrounding his health.

Speaking alongside his wife Sharon, daughter Kelly, and son Jack, Ozzy revealed that since taking his antidepressants his “sex drive was killed instantly”.

He said: “If you go on an antidepressant, with most of them, your sex drive goes.”

Kelly couldn’t hide her shock over the honest admission as she exclaimed: “Oh, for f**k’s sake!”

Jack continued: “I think it’s for both men and women. But it’s not guaranteed, it’s just a possible effect.”

However, due to his own experience, Ozzy claimed it is of course “guaranteed”.

Kelly then quipped: “Dad’s basically saying, ‘I took antidepressants and it took my sex drive away’.”

Ozzy then noted that “everyone that” he’s “ever taken has just killed it”.

The five-time Grammy winner spoke out last year about his decision to take antidepressants admitting he saw his mental health decline due to his battle with Parkinson’s disease.

He told The Observer: “I reached a plateau that was lower than I wanted it to be.

“Nothing really felt great. Nothing. So I went on these antidepressants, and they work OK.”

This goes against Sharon, who over-shared that the couple has sex “a couple times a week” in a 2020 episode of The Talk.

She shared: “When you’re in a relationship your relationship has highs and lows and depending on where you are with your relationship, it’s – you love each other more. Sex changes, and it’s not just about the sex. It’s about intimacy.

“It’s about being with that person that you love. They love you. It just changes. It changes. Those goosebumps that you got change to something else. It’s a warmth. It’s a respect. It’s that, it is a feeling of love and comfort.”

“So those, you know, butterflies and things change to that comfort. And why should it change when – because you’re a certain age? The thing is if somebody moves you in a certain way. You love them. You make love. It’s the best thing in the world.

“Nowadays however it’s getting less. It used to be three times a day but it’s much less now. Let’s say a couple of times a week, which is normal in a long, long relationship.”
