    Hi James

    Although I cannot personally comment as well and truly past it!! I have done an awful lot of research into side effects since my depression and taking cit. It appears to be quite common and I think you just need to give yourself more time to adjust to the increase dose.

    Hopefully someone who is not past it will get back to you soon.

    Wishing you a speedy resolution to your concerns

    Yes! This is a very common side effect that unfortunately won't go away. Was on citalopram for nearly 3 years and in all that time completely lost my sex drive...even stimulation had gone which meant I felt numb in that area and couldn't orgasm at all! Since being off citalopram I have experienced what it's like to have my sensitivity back and can say that my sex drive is back again. I don't know what to suggest really apart from speaking to gp about it as this was a permanent problem for me being on it. Good luck hun
