> I have been on celexa since 11-24 and am up to 60mg. I did not know this was a high dosage until checking the net. I had several days of anxiety and lightheadedness during first week and at each increase in dosage. This is my first time on such medication and I am embarassed to be on it. I also am having sexual trouble. Almost immediately I could not get a erection or ejaculate. This condition has improved but is not at premedication levels. The Dr. tells me to let some more time go by and then if need be we can add medication to help mitigate the sexual side effects. I also have gained some wt and am more tired but have trouble sleeping. Dr. said that should pass too. Have any guys had their sexual activity restored to premed days?> I have been on Celexa since September 24th. I noticed almost immediate results. I'm on it for depression, anxiety, and OCD. I still feel anxious, depending on certain situations. However, the depression and OCD have been diminished greatly. I have searched high and low for side effects, drug interations, etc. The 1999 PDR does not even contain info on this drug. There is very little info provided by the pharmacist. My side effects have been severely decreased sexual libido, great tiredness, and inability to make myself exercise. I hate all of these side effects, but love the fact that my symptoms are so minimal now. My doctor and counselor keep telling me to push myself and try to at least walk or keep moving and hopefully the sleepiness will diminish.
> < I have been on celexa for 5 weeks. I feel good, I'm on 20 mil. I've never been on antidepressants before celexa. (wait, thats not true, I tried paxil for 1 week and never got up out of my living room floor)As far as exercise I dance the tango and seem to have a lot of energy. I have also maintained muscle, therefore It has not affected my ability to work out. However, I do have one side effect and that is sexual.
