Are the sexual side effects of antidepressant medications reversible?
Side effects from antidepressants are reversible and often respond to a reduction in dosage. Unfortunately, decreases in dosage can compromise the medication’s therapeutic efficacy. It is important to tell your psychiatrist what sexual side effects you are suffering from and explore treatment options. Do not make any changes without consulting your psychiatrist as most antidepressants have unpleasant withdrawal effects when dosage is changed.
