devon00 Posted May 8, 2006 Share Posted May 8, 2006 Agh, so I'm back where I started. I'm taking a very small dose of Celexa once a day and I've been doing and feeling quite well lately. The depression seems to be in remission. But...the problem that always is there is the medicine's effect on sexual functioning. Basically, when I take the medicine I'm "dead" sexually. I have little or no interest or sexual response, and forget about having an orgasm...it's just impossible. I actually get to the point sometimes where I forget what it's like to have sexual feelings or impulses, it's that bad! But...if I skip a day it all comes back and I start to remember what I've been missing. I dunno if there's any solution, but this just doesn't seem a reasonable tradeoff to me. Yet, no other medications (including Wellbutrin) have worked for me, and I'm guessing that the reason I'm feeling so good now is that I've been taking my medication regularly. Still, it's miserable. I mean, it's like working in a candy store when you're a diabetic...it just seems so unfair. I'm wondering 1) if any of you can commiserate 2) do you have any ideas other than trying a different medication (as that has never worked for me) 3) what about my only taking the medication every other day but taking twice the dose?? Has anyone ever tried this? If it's safe to skip it occasionally, then what about doing it more often? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
