Antidepressant Drugs and Sexual Side Effects.

 Jay S. Cohen, MD has a very good web site known as Medication Sense.  Cohen was early to question the use of cholesterol lowering drugs.  He addressees a long standing and troubling problem from antidepressant drugs in a new article.

Sexual Side Effects from Antidepressant Drugs: Treatments that May Help.

Many types of medications can affect sexual functioning in women and men. Blood pressure medications and muscle relaxants often do so. Many types of antidepressant drugs can also cause sexual dysfunctions, most notably antidepressants of the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) and SNRI (serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) groups.

The SSRI antidepressants include Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, Prozac and Zoloft.

The SNRI antidepressants are Effexor, Pristiq, and Cymbalta.
