Stay Alert for Sexual Dysfunction With Antidepressants

Many patients on antidepressants (SSRIs, SNRIs, etc) have sexual side effects...but are reluctant to talk about them.

The main concerns include decreased sexual desire, orgasm problems, and erectile dysfunction. These often lead to nonadherence.

Ask open-ended questions about general side effects...GI upset, headache, etc. Mention sexual side effects along with the others...to help patients feel comfortable.
