Treating sexual dysfunction associated with antidepressant medication is an important but relatively unexplored issue in psychopharmacology. A thoughtful diagnostic evaluation, including examination of the possibility that some sexual difficulties attributed to the antidepressant may have another etiology, is mandatory. Should the sexual dysfunction be reasonably attributed to the antidepressant, both general and antidote treatments should be considered using an individualized approach.
