    I had that exact issue which actually started after I went on Citalopram, 7 months on it now, (6 months on 20mg) and I just decreased down to 15mg to see if that would help and it has, I have to say 3 weeks into the decrease and I already feel my emotions coming back, and I am able to do much more then I was on 20mg. I think there is a point where it's just too high of a dose for certain people and I'm noticing now that the numb feeling just might be an effect of being on too high of a dose.

    Best Wishes!
