I stopped Prozac due to inability to orgasm.. Doctor put me on celexa

Doesn't this have the same affect?!?! Arghhh.
Do I really have to choose between being mentally and sexually healthy?

How long have you been on Celexa? I was on Celexa without any sexual side effects and no weight gain. I am now on Zoloft and have gained 30 lbs and have no sex drive and am unable to have an orgasm. I am going to ask the doctor to put me back on Celexa, which had other side effects but not those.

I think most, if not all SSRI's have sexual side effects.

Unfortunately, all the SSRI's (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, etc.) have sexual side effects to some degree. I had the same exact problem on Paxil and the doctor added Wellbutrin and I was fine after that, in that department anyway. However, I ended up with hair loss as a side effect of Wellbutrin. I HATE meds. I'm sensitive to side effects, though.

Just started Wellbutrin because of sexual side effects from Zoloft. My dose of Zoloft is high, however, (200 mg) so I think reducing my dose of Zoloft (or eliminating it) in addition to the Wellbutrin should get me back on track. I am able to orgasm, but sometimes it takes a lot of work. Sex drive is zero on the Zoloft, too......no interest, zero, zip, zilch.

For a couple of weeks celexa gave me the sexual side effect you mention but this soon went away and I was soon functioning fine again. You might have to wait a few weeks to see.

hiay;
I hears one technique to beat the sexual side effects is to not take your meds at the weekend! at least then you can get SOME action.

Yeah, I think it's called a drug 'holiday'? Ask your doctor about it.
