What can one do to prolong an erection when on celexa and abilify? What if desire and arousal are there, but sensations then plateau, and the erection goes away?
Antidepressants such as Celexa can affect your sexual performance.
This is a very common side effect of antidepressants so don't hesitate to talk to your doctor.
A small dose reduction could help but don't try this until talking with your doctor.
Timing may also be an issue. If you take your meds just once a day you may be able to solve the issue by taking your medicine after the time of day you normally engage in sexual intercourse.
You may need to consider switching brands of antidepressant. Your doctor may suggest a brand that is less likely to cause sexual side effects.
Your doctor may also suggest erectile dysfunction medications such as Cialis, Viagra or Levitra to help maintain an erection.
