hello there,

maybe i do overreact but it's driving me crazy.
i've been on citalopram for around a year in 2009/10 and it did great on my Depression. No clue about pssd the. After that i had an ok Sex live, but it never was that great and fullfilling as it's supposed to be i think.
well, all that started to normalize in the last year or so, with my actual girlfriend everything went fine so far and i've been very happy until my anxiety struck again. After several doctors and psychologists told me to retake citalopram i decided to take it. i took 10mg for 5 days and stoppe asap i recognized my dead Sex drive. drives me crazy. now i'm 3 days of the drug and i'm very scared i might need a long time do recover, if at all.
do any of you guys have experience with recovery, taking the drug again, and a dead sexdrive?
if i recovered in the past, do you think i'll have to worry that it's finaly it and i won't recover this time? i'm scared and angry as und i knew the risk and now i'm facing the symptomes.
thanks a lot and have a nice Day,
nuc

Don't worry, the vast vast majority of people recover their sexual function within the first 6 weeks, what you're currently experiencing is most likely withdrawal symptoms. One to avoid doing is stressing and get frustrated, especially during masturbation and other sexual situations as that can create pelvic floor tension and related symptoms.

Relax...you will most certainly recover but it might take up to 3 or 6 months to recover fully.
Right now you should just relax and not think much about it.
I would also advise you to take viagra or cialis to boost your confidence and relieve the stress (and performance anxiery) of losing your libido.
