Abstract

Sexual dysfunction is a common side effect seen in patients taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Spontaneous resolution may occur in some patients, but modifications to therapy can be employed to eliminate undesirable side effects. These include reducing drug dosages, altering timing of drug dosages, taking drug holidays, adding an adjunctive drug, and switching to alternative antidepressants.
