Celexa and Possible Sexual Side-Effects
Celexa (and Lexapro) are both known for inhibiting orgasms in women and often cause erectile dysfunction (difficulties) in men.
One of my husband's male friends had started on Celexa and had been on it for two weeks. He was very freaked out by these types of side-effects. He came to dinner and shared with my husband and me about his issues. He did not realize the issue was a Celexa side-effect. After two weeks of Celexa, it took 4 weeks of Celexa discontinuation for these side-effects to clear (for him).
Many female friends talk with me about the inability to have an orgasm when taking Celexa.
Citalopram is helpful for anxiety, for anxious depressions and for pain.
A different type of antidepressant, bupropion (Wellbutrin SR) is often thought to be the antidepressant with the least interference with sexual functioning.
Hope this information is helpful. Am sure your doctor can more thoroughly answer any of your concerns.
Take care, Gunny!
