    I've been on citalopram now for around 3 months and have found a significant loss in my libido, i'm a female and have constantly been very dry and when with partners i've not been as wet as i used to be, and have found sex rather uncomfortable and not even pleasurable. I'm not feeling as sexy or as horny anymore, and although im single it is ruining my personal sex life.

    any advice, although it's the medication i want to regain the person i was again.

    I tried citalopram and it made me feel so strange that I stopped very quickly. Do you have a strong need for this betablocker?

    By definition, a betablocker is going to reduce any strong emotions you feel, such as desire for sex.

    Don't quote me on this (possibly look this up) but I have heard that people can adapt to betablockers and these secondary effects can be reduced slightly.

    I think that the only solution for you is (artificial) lubrification or considering to ween yourself off citalopram.
