Hi does anyone else have this problem - I'm a girl btw - I never normally have any problems in this department, I have been affected by other meds before a tiny bit, but this is off the scale - it's like major numbness inside (sorry to be graphic). There is no libido problem, no dryness (again sorry if too much info) just numbness and failure to 'get there' either alone or with my partner. Like I said, has never been a problem before....
I started the clomipramine about a month ago 10mg for two weeks, rising to 25mg for two weeks, this week I was due to go up but having discussed the things i've just mentioned my doc has said to hold off and see if side effects subside (also getting lump in throat, palpitations, dizziness - but I can handle those).
Sex is important to me, not in an unhealthy way, but it's one of the fun things in life and part of how you bond with your partner - so don't want what wasn't a problem area to become an issue.
Other than this Clomipramine has been amazing for me, has really really helped and I hope it continues to do so..... it stoped working a few days after week two, but when I went up I stabilised after a couple of days and seems to be going ok (touch wood).
I guess my questions is firstly - do any other girls out there have this problem with it?
Secondly... Is there anything I can take to counter act the numbness if things don't improve of their own accord? I know blokes are sometime given Viagra for it, but what can girls take?
Suggestions and advice all welcome,
love and light
