Ozzy Osbourne is not a fan of some of the side effects he’s experienced while taking antidepressants.

During the latest episode of The Osbournes Podcast, the 74-year-old rock icon had a discussion with his family about mental health when he opened up about his experience taking the medication.

“The one thing about antidepressants is it kills your sex drive instantly,” Ozzy said as his daughter Kelly sighed with embarrassment. “If you go on an antidepressant, with most of them your sex drive goes.”

Kelly, 38, then asked if that was the case for men or women.

“I think it’s for both men and women,” son Jack, 37, said. “But it’s not guaranteed, it’s just a possible side effect.”

Ozzy then quipped that it is guaranteed before Kelly added, “Dad’s basically saying, ‘I took antidepressants and it took my sex drive away.’”

“Every one that I’ve ever taken has just killed it,” Ozzy said as the family laughed.

Ozzy previously discussed taking antidepressants because his mental health struggled while dealing with symptoms of his Parkinson's disease, with which he was diagnosed in 2003.

Last year, the musician told The Observer that he constantly struggles with walking.

"You think you're lifting your feet, but your foot doesn't move. I feel like I'm walking around in lead boots," he added, noting that Parkinson's had taken a toll on his mental health and left him depressed.

"I reached a plateau that was lower than I wanted it to be," Ozzy said of his mental state. "Nothing really felt great. Nothing. So I went on these antidepressants, and they work OK."

But the "Crazy Train" singer admitted that the most frustrating aspect of Parkinson's is not knowing where it will end.

"You learn to live in the moment, because you don't know [what's going to happen]. You don't know when you're gonna wake up and you ain't gonna be able to get out of bed. But you just don't think about it," Ozzy said at the time.
