Hello im new... ive suffered depression twice before but its come back full force this time and seems theres no hope left at all!! im 23 yrs old, started this episode back in october, went onto citalopram.. agen!! this time after 6 weeks was still depressed and side effects seemed to be getting worse.. so gradually stopped with bad side effects but then they stopped....
Since christmas my depression has just seemed to have been getting worse and worse without any cause!! im now barely able to function properly and have many mates but i just dont want to socialise with them anymore at all.. some days i just feel brain dead and cant have a laugh anymore iv jus got no interests or cant think of anything i like anymore!! I dont know if another medication would work, im scared because they reduce sex drive and thats the last thing i want... help????

Hi blockheed, love your user name!

Sorry you are feeling so rubbish. So are you drug free at the moment? I think you should speak to your doc about another drug. They dont all have the side effect of lowering your sex drive. And even if they do there are things you can do to combat it.

I know what you mean about not wanting to see anyone. im feeling not to bad at the moment, but i do feel like that when im not well

hope you get help soon
