Why don't doctors recognize and treat victims of post-ssri sexual dysfunction? Contrary to drug company propaganda, victims are a silenced majority.

Why don't doctors recognize and treat victims of post-ssri sexual dysfunction? Contrary to drug company propaganda, victims are a silenced majority.

Yelling at Doctors: I do not believe this is an appropriate forum for your accusations. The physicians here are here volunteering their time for free; we do not and cannot speak to the specific practice of a physician we do not know. And your accusation is not true of all physicians, including this one. ...Read more

Are there over-the-counter drugs available for sexual dysfunction?

Are there over-the-counter drugs available for sexual dysfunction?

Sorry but no: "sexual dysfunction" is a pretty vague term which can refer to lack or loss of sex drive (libido), inability to get or stay aroused/erect, inability to orgasm (anorgasmia), and even (undesired) pain w/sexual activity. Unfortunately, there are no over-the-counter medications, herbs, or dietary supplements to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent sexual dysfunction. Instead, go see your family physician. ...Read more

Is the sexual dysfunction I'm experiencing due to previous usage of risperdal and current usage of seroquel (quetiapine)? Also other psychiatric drugs. Solution?

Is the sexual dysfunction I'm experiencing due to previous usage of risperdal and current usage of seroquel (quetiapine)? Also other psychiatric drugs. Solution?

Probably not: I don't think it maybe due to previous usage of Risperdal, very unlikely it is due to Seroquel but other medications may be causing it to some degree. You should openly discuss it with your doctor, as well as ask for other options, like adding Wellbutrin or using Yohimbin, as well as other options, like Viagra, Cialis or Levitra (vardenafil). ...Read more

Which antidepressant drug has less sexual dysfunction side effects: Effexor (venlafaxine) XR or Prozac?

Which antidepressant drug has less sexual dysfunction side effects: Effexor (venlafaxine) XR or Prozac?

Hard to say: Both agents have sexual dysfunction as potential side effects. Around 20-30% of chances. It depends on individual susceptibility and also it varies upon the dose. So the lower the dose, less the risk . In my experience however, Effexor (venlafaxine) XR would be less prone to cause it than Prozac. ...Read more

Would female Viagra (sildenafil) help with sexual dysfunction caused by antidepressants ?

Yes and no: I assume you are asking about the use of Viagra (sildenafil) for women with sexual dysfunctions caused by antidepressants. It might work, but the typical problems from antidepressants are normally not about the blood flow to the clitoris. They are lack of desire and inability to climax. For this, other medications might work better. Sorry I am limited in numbers of words for the answer. Talk to your doctor or ...Read more
