> been on prozac > 1 year. the no orgasm thing was getting intolerable. asked MD about celexa. been on it x3 weeks, 20 mgs. well, been so busy arguing and fighting with the husband, haven't had time to have sex. so, don't know i celexa helps with that or not. feel like crying as i;m writing this. started on zoloft 3 years ago so i wouldn't break things, say terribly mean things and hurt the kids: a pms thing. had to work through that 'i don't really need meds for this, what a loser that i can't handle life without meds'. worked through that.... don't know what to do. see the md on fri. keep taking the celexa? stop? i have been exercising again. don't like being angry, snappy and bitchy (unless i want to be) and would like to have orgasms. but if anorgasmia is the price to pay so i don't feel like a angry, depressed, slovenly bitch i guess it's worth it.?.

i have been dealing with medical issues for several years and it was destroying my marriage and the financial crunch was becoming a problem in itself. i've had bad spots before but recently found myself sobbing uncontrolably or pitching major temper tantrums for no aparrent reason. lots of suicidal thoughts. i've been on celexa for a month now and have felt tons better. i still get weepy for no reason but can push it off and i'm not as irritable. the only side effects i've had are the yawn attacks-sometimes feel like my jaw is going to pop, yet i don't feel sleepy. i do have a hard time getting up in the a.m. and sleep like a rock. i can't comment on the sexual side effects my libido's been nil for a while now. i have been taking ginko for a year now and i haven't experienced any forgetfulness with the celexa either-not sure if it's the ginko or not.good luck to everyone-i'd appreciate a pen pal from anyone out there, no one in my family has ever had this type of problem so no one really understands that no matter how positive you try to be (the most common lecture) that it feels like someone else is driving the emotions and you're just there for the ride.
