Latin Help

I tried to work something out myself, but I understand very little about Latin, and nothing about the grammar, so I'm coming to you lovely people.

I am looking for a Latin phrase that translates (and it can be a very rough translation; I know Latin concepts/vocabulary can be limited in certain areas) to something along the lines of 'to make wild with passion' or 'to cause to become insane with passion'. The phrase is in reference to people or animals, and passion can be substituted for lust if necessary.

The only thing I've been able to come up with was 'Facio torva per votum', and I don't think it's grammatically correct or has the right connotations.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!
