Citalopram Is killing my sex life

Posted , 5 users are following.

For some reason since I've been on this tablet I can't cum. I can get hard, do everything but I just can't reach organom. 

Before I'd be having sex all the time all day with my partner. And when I wasn't I'd be having a w**k.

Now my sex drive is at a 0 and I havnt cum in like 2 weeks. 

Does anyone have any advice or can relate. I might change or come off my tablets. I'm a sexual person and these tablets are a buzz kill.

    Hi there the inability to achieve orgasm is a temporary side effect of most anti depressants, some are actually prescribed for premature ejaculation and performance anxiety

    Give it a bit more time and your sex drive will return but don't expect it overnight.

    Unfortunately this is a common side effect of this drug and other SSRI's. What is not so common knowledge is this can become permenant. No way to know what the outcome will be.

    Hi Mpa, I know this isn't going to be what you want to hear but the lack of orgasm (anorgasmia) will eventually disappear but, in my case at least, the loss of libido is permanent until you stop the Citalopram.  I hope you manage to cope.

    I must say, I'm glad to see this problem isn't just mine. I have just decreased from 30mg to 20mg because of my inability to orgasm (or it would take aaaaages).

    However,the fact that I've decreased on my own overnight has really affected my ability to function in general, and I'm considering increasing again.
