Unhappy Help !

Good Morning. This is my first time posting here, so please forgive me if this has been disucssed in the past.

I had been taking the Anti-depresant drug Celexa for over a year, with horrible sexual side affect. I had no interest in it what so ever. This has caused a MAJOR problem with my husband, understandably. I have tired to explain to him, why this is happening and what I am doing to correct this problem. He doesn't understand side affects in certain medications. Don't get me wrong he is a very loving person and pretty understanding most of the time. He just doesn't get this. I have spoke to my Doctor about this, I should of done it months ago, and he has now changed my medication. I have been on the new meds for three weeks now and am slowly getting back my drive.

I have searched the net for recent information on side affects in medications and all I am coming up with is site that want to SELL me the meds. This is very fustrating to me, as I would like some good information to give to my husband, so that maybe he can understand what is going on.

I am at a loss here and afraid for my marriage.

Thank you for any information that you may have!

Me - Luvs

Re: Help !

Call your doctor and ask him for some info,they normally have leaflets that they can give out. If he/she doesnt have something to give you go to the pharmacy you use and ask them for the info. If you can get you can get your Dh to go with you so he can see and talk to either the doctor or pharmacist himself.

Another thing you can do is do a direct search by using the name of the med or company that makes it. Many times they will have sits that list the side effects.
Make sure you are doing searchs for "antidepressants and sexual side effects". Google has a great search engine that always seems to bring up the greatest info for me.
