Antidotes: There are several things out there that help as antidotes to the sexual dysfunction caused by serotonin reuptake inhibitors like prozac (fluoxetine). Suggest to your girlfriend that she ask the doctor who prescribed her the Prozac (fluoxetine) for suggestions for antidotes, and if the psychiatrist is not familiar with these, suggest she someone with psychopharmacology specialized experience.
