    Have you had your prolactin levels and estrogen levels checked? Yes i know you're talking about SSRIs however there is a link with these as well SSNRIs to prolactin and estrogen levels . This may be the cause from my speculation as to why it causes things like lethargy - head aches - mood swings - erectile dysfunction and some other side effects depending what medication a person is on . You see , your standard Cialis is trying to patch up the issue but it's not targeting the root cause and if someone does not have blood work , hormonal panels to look at , you can see how it is pretty hard to say what may be causing you trouble .

    When it comes to libido , too many factors play in but of course , medication always warrants some investigation . I would consider this and if it's not your issue then , what is your testosterone levels at i have to ask? is this medication you're on even working then or do you still have anxiety / have you gained anxiety recently . There must be some hormonal , mental or physical cause for this and that's the issue , you have to play detective on yourself and your life , it can be a combination . Do you have good blood pressure? good blood flow and circulation .

    try to go back to the drawing board my friend , hope this helps

    Does the doctor who prescribed SSRIs know you have low libido? If so he/she might prescribe buspirone HCL (Buspar). That's pretty standard

    To get libido back you need to stop the citalapram.

    Wean it off for a couple weeks at 20mg, dont stop all of a sudden.
