Antidepressants Cause Sexual Problems

Do you think you’re depressed now? Just wait till you take antidepressants and see what it does to your sex life. Iranian scientists, in a study on nearly 200 men and women, found that Prozac, Zoloft and Oleptro (fluoxetine, sertraline and trazodone) caused significant sexual problems, including decreased arousal and impaired orgasm. Prozac reduced sex drive in nearly 50 percent of users. Oleptro had the least effect on arousal and orgasm. Zoloft was in the middle, causing sexual impairment in 40 percent of users. Antidepressants can improve mood, but they can have severe effects on sexual performance and enjoyment. (General Hospital Psychiatry, published online October 30, 2014)
