User Comments about Cipralex
02 Sep 2015 THIS DRUG PERMANENTLY CASTRATED ME. I took 10 mg a day for 5 weeks and lost all sexual function. It has been a year after discontinuation and I have not regained my libido, arousal, desire. Am completely asexual. I am not taking any drugs and have not taken any before in my life. Will most likely commit suicide. THANKS LUNDBECK! I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL!!!

23 Aug 2015 I have been on it fairly 2 weeks and its way to early to give any evaluation but as far as i can feel the loss of energy is interfering with my daily chores.Otherwise it has definitely reduced my anxiety and anger issues and i feel generally way calmer.

19 Jun 2015 Not my fist antidepressants, been on Prozac yrs ago, was going to separation with alcoholic hubby, kept working and tok care of my son the best I could. First months, I felt better, maybe it eas supportfrom dr. changed for Cipralex couple of yrs ago, tremors and and feet, the face. Freaked me out. Always so tired, could barely get un, take. care of child and work, Dr changed from 20 mg to 10. for thyroid I got Synthroidd, but still exhaustion, hardly can climb of bed and do my day. Just want to sleep. Will ask dr to stop Copralex, I am a walking sleepy zombie, no projetcs, nor dreams, that is not a life. If somoone get out of this coma, that would be encouraging!

19 Mar 2015 I have had excellent success with cipralex, treating anxiety and depression. Ive been on it for almost three years. In the past year i have noticed some symptoms which i suspect is the drug. The symptoms are loose stool, mild nausea, intermittent sleep issues amd weight gain of about 10 lbs. i need at least 8 hrs of sleep at night and do not have the same energy as i had before. In addition to cipralex i also have incorporated meditation, follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise. As a result i have been able to reduce my dosage by half. Overall ive had excellent results with cipralex.
