Brief Answer: NO OTC REMEDY AVAILABLE, OR RECOMMENDED. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Firstly, to assess whether his libido is within the normal range or requires therapy, he needs to see a doctor ! I know you would understand that this makes sense. Compulsive sexual behaviour is the condition wherein an individual is preoccupied with sex all the time. If he is diagnosed with this condition, then 3 avenues of treatment are generally available - 1. The first is of course psychotherapy, most individuals respond to this quite favourably. 2. The second is medications - most of them are aimed at acting against the male hormones responsible for the overt sexual drive. 3. Self help groups and support groups. To answer your question, none of the medications approved or recommended are available OTC, or should be taken OTC. He can divert his thoughts, or occupy himself in work or exercise to the degree that his mind gets distracted most of the time. Other than that, for actual treatment and medications, you need to see a doctor, that is for sure. Self medication would only have unnecessary side effects. Wish you all the best.
