    Hi, I have been taking Citalopram 20mg for 8 weeks and I too find it almost impossible to orgasm (you will find a way when it goes on too long believe me!!) I get the feeling that I am stuck with it until I come off the medication! sad

    Hi, I have been taking citalopram for almost 6 months and still cannot orgasm which is now distressing myself and my partner. I think I will discuss it with my gp next time I have a med review.

    Im 11 weeks in and I find I can orgasm now, but you need to stimulate your mind more...

    I find I can just stop sex half way through and not care though... which is frustrating for my partner..
