Her husband is weak – can she put medicine in his food without him knowing?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am a woman who needs intimacy with my husband, but my husband is weak in this regard. I have tried to convince him to get treatment but with no success. Can I put medicine to strengthen his desire in his food without him knowing?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

I asked our Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Baraak about this and he replied: 

She should not do that. If she cannot put up with it she may ask for a divorce.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
