If An Anti-Depressant Causes Uncomfortably Low Sex Drive Or Impotence

Next » « Previous


One of the side effects of several anti-depressants is lowered sex drive or impotence.

One recommendation to counteract these effects is to take the pill early in the morning. It can help lower the rate of erectile dysfunction in the evening.

There are other drugs to help counteract the side effects such as BuSpar (buspirone) an anti-anxiety drug, and impotence drugs such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra).

An alternative is to switch to an anti-depressant less likely to have a similar effect such as bupropion (Wellbutrin) or nefazodone (Serzone).
