Actually, it was the Post by Elizabeth,
quoting the Editorial in Biological Psychiatry
(I hope I have those facts right).

I recently posted a note to someone whose
Pdoc was quitting practice, relaying how I happened to find my
Psychiatrist. In regard to buprenorphine, I gave her the Journal article, we discussed whether I
would continue taking Celexa with it, but as the main goal was to recover
from the antisexual effects of the SSRIs (if that was indeed the cause of my
anorgasmia -haven't decided yet) we decided to drop the Celexa.

She had no problem with it, nor did the local pharmacy {Wal-Mart} (haven't tried my
mail-in insurance pharmacy yet. Wal-Mart did have to order it, but it was in the next morning.
