Question: Citalopram and infertility

Can Citalopram affect fertility?
|Dr. Tamer Fouad - Wed Jan 04, 2006 3:57 pm||
Citalopram (Celexa) is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) indicated for the treatment of depression. Common sexual side effects include decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm.
Regarding fertility, there is one preclinical trial which found a reduction in fertility of male mice. To my knowledge, there have been no human trials that confirmed this.
