| | Celexa--sexual Side Effects!?
Well, I have been on 20mg a day of Celexa for my anxiety attacks for about 8months now. I didn't really notice anything at first, but I think it may be affecting my sexual response. I am a 22 yr old female. I have a boyfriend now, and we've been together almost three months. Before him I was celibate for a little over a year, and I've had no problems giving myself an orgasm, even since I've been on Celexa. I am unable to orgasm with him, from any sexual act, not just intercourse, and I've been noticing lately that it's hard for me to even do it by myself. (However, no man has ever been able to bring me to orgasm so I have nothing to compare it to) I guess here are my questions: has anyone else had experience with this problem on Celexa or a similar anti-anxiety/anti-depressant? For me the sensation feels numbed and I don't get turned on as easily. What has happened to you guys, if you've noticed sexual side effects--after how long on the medication? Last--can anyone suggest a similar medication with a lower chance of sexual side effects? Celexa wasnt supposed to have these side effects as much as other similar meds, but I'm thinking no such luck. I'm frustrated, cuz I don't think I'm ready to go off my meds! I want to have an enjoyable sex life, but i also don't feel like freaking out in the middle of driving on the highway or feeling faint!! Your suggestions and comments would be appreciated! thanks guys!
