Lexapro is the "improved" form of celexa. It takes half the dose of Lexapro to equal a dose of Celexa. Celexa is a generic and dirt cheap, where Lexapro is still under patent and costs much more. Years ago, I was on Lexapro, and stopped taking it 5 years back, cold turkey, no issues. I have been through all that I have been through in my twisted PC journey without any anti-depressents. My GP thinks I need to be back on it, I disagree, but I have an open prescription that I have never filled.
With both Celexa and Lexapro, while neither prevented me from having sex, as in the mechanical sense (non ED), I never wanted sex or even thought about sex while I was on the meds. Since I am blessed with no ED issues, sure don't want to be on anything that would spoil my fun.
If I really thought I needed to be back on an anti-depressent, I would not hesitate. There's a lot of good meds out there, that's between you and your doctor to sort out what is best for you.
As far as any home cures or off the shelf remedies, buyer beware is all I will say.
