Medical literature concerning sexual dysfunction associated with antidepressant drug therapy in men is reviewed. Available information consists mainly of individual case reports or small series of cases. A complicating factor in understanding this area is the lack of sufficient information concerning sexual dysfunction associated with depression. Both erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory problems have been reported with the use of the clinically available antidepressants. No single agent seems to be implicated more frequently than the other drugs. Changes in libido have also been reported. The authors found no reported cases of priapism, which has been reported as a side effect of antipsychotic therapy.
