Re: Celexa and sexual dysfunction

<B>I am female and have been on celexa for about 2 years. I am having problems with sexual dysfunction. It's not as bad as when I was on Prozac, though we solved that problem by adding Wellbutrin. I don't want to add wellbutrin and I like the Celexa much better, so not sure what to do now. I've read some info on the internet about possible alternatives. Herbal remedies like Ginko Biloba and Yolrimbine (?). I've also read that viagra can help women with SSRI sexual dysfunction. Does anyone have any experiences with these alternatives??
Hi. I have tried Viagra and it does not work for me, or for most females. The Ginko is doubtful also acording to many reports. Are you afraid Wellbutrin will make you irritable? If that worked added to Prozac it may work with Celexa. I sympathize with you, I know how frustrating sexual disfunction can be on the SSRIs. I am taking Serzone for almost 3 weeks [no sexual dysfunction]. It worked early, but now is just so-so. I understand I have to be patient with the dosing. I tried it because of the 'no sexual side effects'. Celexa did not work for me. I wish you luck.
