    Celexa and sexual dysfunction

    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??

    thanx

    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.

    I have experienced sexual dysfunction as well. I can easily get an erection, but have a hard time reaching orgasm and ejaculation.
    The doctor prescribed wellbutrin to go along with the Celexa, which helped somewhat but not completely. At least the Celexa works for depression.

    I am assuming that you mean sexual disfunction ONLY while on meds. If it is so all you have to do is to ask your doctor for something. You don't need to stop having the AD.

    good luck

    Re: Celexa and sexual dysfunction

    For me it is just the opposite.When i was on prozac my sex drive was better than before but was unable to orgasm.I was switched to celexa after the prozac wore off and now i am able to orgasm again.I guess that proves everyone is different. Joanne
