Viagra-type meds: The only medications that seem to work consistently for ssri-induced sexual dysfunction are the pde-5 inhibitors (viagra, cialis, levitra). Other medication (e.g. Wellbutrin, (bupropion) ritalin, adderall, others) have been studied, but none has been shown to be consistently effective.

Newer antidepressant: Most ssri cause erectlle dysfunction however a newer drug called vilazodone shows promise in minimizing these side effects vilazodone is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) and is also a 5ht1a receptor partial agonist. This type of receptor has been show to facilitate sexual behavior and arousal. But always evaluate your hormone status especially men.

ED and Prozac (fluoxetine): Generally ED is not caused by fluoxetine, rather ejaculatory dysfunction. All pd5 inhibitors (viagra, levitra, (vardenafil) cialis, staxyn) work well with those patients on fluoxetine. The pd5 may also help with delayed ejaculation as it may help you keep your erection longer.
