Celexa - Is there anything I can take to counteract the decrease in my sex drive
There is anything that will help by increasing your sex drive, if Celexa is the cause. In these circumstances, where a medicine causes decreased sex drive, then going off the medicine is the only way to reverse the sex drive. If you have erectile dysfunction then perhaps something like Viagra might help... but I don't think can anything can help increase your sex drive. Please discuss with your doctor... if it's really bad then your doctor may look at changing your antidepressant. I've been taking Celexa for about 2 months now and my life is completely different. I have been struggling with depression on and off for about 14 years now. It was getting really bad for me, I was at the point where I couldn't control my emotions at all. It made me very drowsy at first, but that subsided after a couple of weeks. I feel so much better inside and people around me can tell a distinct difference too. I like the fact that it doesn't make me emotionless, just that my emotions aren't so strong and out of control. I still get sad, but that is a normal human emotion. I am so thankful that there are ways to make people like me feel better. Depression is a disease, not a choice. I was fortunate to have found an effective method of treatment for my depression after trying only a few different medications. I began with Lexapro, which gave me drymouth, provided little relief and resulted in an uncomfortable feeling if a dosage was missed. Cymbalta gave me a constant headache. I started on 20mg of Celexa and after a few weeks I felt more like myself. I have been taking 40mg for three years and have had great results with few side effects. Mild decreased in sex drive.
