    I was prescribed Citalopram yesterday by my doctor for depression/stress... I have been reading online about the reviews, most complain about sexual decrease or unable to orgasm but can perform for hours...

    My sex drive was/is perfect...yet i've only been on the pill for 1 day. lol

    My question here is has anyone experienced or know anyone thats been on Citalopram with sexual side affects and what not?

    A lot of antidepressants lower your libido. Just like a lot of depressed people masturbate more than the average person. Unfortunately, you can't have it both ways. :]

    I was on that plus cymbalta, abilify and depakote. It never affected my sex drive. Everyone is different though. It will take a couple of weeks before you know since it usually takes that long to get in your system. I wouldn't worry about it though. The more you worry you could just bring it on by worrying.

    True. In all honesty I believe i can already tell a difference on how I'm feeling, but that's probably just myself psyching out.... As you said each individual is different and time will tell. Just all of the reviews are negative but most people won't post positive things...

    I've been on Lexapro for anxiety and panic attacks for years and it has lowered my drive a little. And lengthened my stay power a bit.
