Social phobia - side effects of Celexa

Posted by Douglas Thomas on August 16, 1999, at 18:40:15

I have been suffering from mild social phobia for the last 20 years. It usually manifests itself by sweating in certain social situations when I am the center of attention. I had learned to live with it(mostly through avoidance), but finally after a particularly bad/embarrassing episode, I decided to seek professional help. I was prescribed Paxil and took 10 mgs a day for a week then 20 mgs daily for a week. The sexual side effect of extrememly delayed ejaculation or even no orgasm was unacceptable, and my doctor said this type of side effect usually doesn't subside. I was then prescribed Celexa in hopes of alleviating the sexual side effect. This is my third day of 10 mgs of Celexa. I amm supposed to gradually increase the dosage. I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with Celexa or any other ssri as part of a treatment plan for social phobia. Also, is anyone taking Celexa without experiencing similar side effects ?
