I am new to the website. I need advice on a particular subject.
I have been taking celexa for depression and anxiety for about five years, and I think I am experienceing some side effects.
 
I am not writing this to be perverted I just need advice. I am a newly wed, and I have no sexual drive I rarely get excited. I think it might be a side effect of the medication. I want to go off of the medication but I am fearful of getting anxiety attacks. If anyone have advice I would be glad to hear it.

Hey Kini,

I had the same problem with an anti-d. Because the anti-d was working SO well for me, I would skip a day once each week and plan a special evening with hubby. I couldn't believe how well this worked. I'm not sure if it really did help or if it was psycological, but I didn't care . . . as long as it worked.

Hope this helps!

Blessings!

Hey Kini . . . I should add that skipping a day of any med should be approved by your doc first.

Blessings! (and good luck . . wink!)
