Hi all,

Newbie and first post.

After years of denying I had an issue I finally went to my GP approx. 7 months ago and was prescribed Citalopram. The good news is the pills are working great and really taking the edge off my negative behaviour.

The problem is that I have been unable to reach ejaculation during intercourse since. I told my GP who seemed surprised and prescribed Sildenafil to try.

Has anyone else experienced these issues and maybe know if this will work?

I appreciate your help.

Hi AndyG and :welcome:

Often these kinds of problems become less on lower doses? I had something similar with Risperidone, and found both my energy and my sex drive much improved on a lower dose.

I am only on 10mg, so cant go any lower unfortunately. GP advised I wait until I have seen physiologist before attempting to come off them.

the inability to ejaculate is a common problem on all stimulants, from amphetamine to prozac.

if a man can ejaculate on his own but not with another person, then thats an anxiety issue.

unhappiness and anxiety tend to go hand in hand.

I had a number of witty additional things to add here but, as I am the New Reformed Sensitive Rasselas, I'll leave you guessing.

I wouldn't want to affect the thrust of the thread. Joking would be premature.

Think sex can become a major issue for people on psychiatric medications, for various reasons.

In part i'm content being single, & feel asexual a lot of the time - although i do masturbate - the reality of actual sexual relations i find off putting a lot of the time. Hard to explain. Have been single 16 years - in part i never cross paths with someone i deeply resonate with - But there is something in the condition/medication that seems to block relations as well.

Anyway - i don't see anything wrong in being single - i think it's a lot better & simpler a lot of the time - & less painful.
