I have been taking 20 mg of citalopram for almost a month and am having problems during sex, I am having difficulty achieving an orgasm. I am a male and wonder if any other men have or had this problem and if it gets better after prolonged use of this drug? This is the only antidepressant I take .
Hello KLY1966. A decrease and lack of libido occured in 3.8% of men and 1.3% of women when taking Citalopram/Celexa in clinical trials. ED occured in just under 6% of men using the drug. The possible remedy is that if your dose can be lowered, this often solves the problem. If not possible, another drug is used and the Citalopram is replaced. My own opinion, give it a bit more time and if no improvement try the allternatives. Regards pledge
