Posted 2 December at Since taking citalopram and sexual side effects Citalopram for almost 2 months now I have completely lost my sex drive.
The medication has been excellent for resoloving my anxiety that I was suffering post a stressful 18 months being unhappy in a job. I experienced a slight decrease in my sex drive while I was on the meds Same dose as you, too. I can get horny, it just takes citalopram and sexual side effects and reaching orgasm is difficult and if I do its not as intense as it was, like you I also have a very loving and understanding husband.
I was on Fluoxetine for a few weeks and then switched to Citalopram. I thought it was weird at first as I had always had the higher sex drive in our relationship but one day it just went away. When I started falling alseep in a bath full of water after drinking too much I realised I needed help, citalopram and sexual side effects. I also felt like everyone was out to get me. I had been on the contraceptive injection for a year so I came off it and took no contraception at all to give my body a rest, citalopram and sexual side effects.
My period has finally arrived and it feels like my boyfriend and I citalopram and sexual side effects just waiting for the day it finally finishes so we can reconnect again, after so long. So I think perhaps once you start to feel more like yourself, and the tabelts have had time to get into your system, you might start to feel better.
My counsellor advised me to have naked cuddles in bed with my boyfriend and we were not allowed to touch genitals or boobs etc. Once the pressure bima and norvasc taken off you and you both agree to lie naked with nothing to happen you may find it helps to relax you.

But I found in the 2 year spell between taking these tablets that it came back. I spoke to my doctor about it and he told me not to worry too much as the main objective is to get rid of the depression, worrying about lack of sex drive is just another thing to get us down.
