I have been taking 20 mg of celexa (citalopram) since September 2014, about 4 months now to treat my anxiety. Anxiety and mild depression runs in the family, my father takes prozac for the very same reason I am on Celexa.
Anyways, I've been hooking up with this new girl for the past few weeks and have been having issues getting it up and keeping it up. This is my first girl I've been with while on the SSRI's, so I know I am experiencing sexual side effects. I have not been able to bone with her yet due to my side effects. I'm real bummed out and am considering quitting celexa for good or getting myself some viagra or something similar to assist with my mechanical issues (I still wouldn't come to a finish on viagra, but getting a chub would be nice). I've never had ED issues before, I know this is a side from the meds.
What are your recommendations for tapering off this drug and have any of you had similar experiences? How long did it take for your sex drive to come back? Starting today, I've been cutting pills in half, effectively lowering my dose to 10 mg daily.
I've emailed by GP a similar email to this thread, I'd jus appreciate your feedback and experiences as well.
