Question Low Testosterone takind ssri antidepressants, is this possible


I've wondered if my testosterone is low at times as I have difficulties, being on ssri antidepressants 20mg citalopram, which I think can possibly lower testosterone.

I have delayed or non-existent ejaculation, don't feel as horny when I look at my woman or get turned on the same as a result unless I stop taking these which is awkward.

Then I think how can I have low testosterone when I'm very hairy on chest, legs etc and grow a beard in no time cos its testosterone which causes this?

Any comment anyone?

Hey bud, what you're describing is totally common in folks who take SSRI meds and things for depression. I'd be checking with my doc and honestly letting him know how difficult things are in the sex department right now. He may be able to change meds to something with less effect on the libido and performance stuff. Hope this helps and good luck!
