hi there
im on citalopram from 20mg down to 10mg. i feel great on it,no side effects except at the beginning,the only problem is my sex drive is zero.:((im trying the herbal stuff you can get to see if that makes any difference. Such a shame because other than that i cant fault the drug.
thanks

Not a problem for me!!

I've not had this problem with citralapam and I take 40mgs a day. Maybe for me It's just the lack of opportunities !!! :(

I was on 60 mg but I didn't really notice any change in sex drive, just my level of satisfaction if you know what I mean. And I didn't realise how much until I came off them!
