Serotonin Selective Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD): Hypothesis on its Association and Options of Treatment.

Curr Drug Targets 2018 ;19(12):1352-1358

Zwirki I Wiguri 62, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.

Sexual dysfunctions are commonly seen in women on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). The complexities of female sexual functioning are reflected through modulation of inter- playing factors like the neuropsychophysiological factors, inter-personal and relationship issue, psychiatric co-morbidities and physical disorder. The incidence of SSRIs-induced FSD is difficult to estimate because of the potential confounding effects of SSRIs, presence of polypharmacy, marital effect, socio-cultural factors and due to the design and assessment problems in majority of the studies.

aDepartment of Nursing bPsychiatry Department, University Hospital of Salamanca cIBSAL Neurosciences Area, University of Salamanca, Salamanca dDepartment of Clinical Medicine, Miguel Hernández University, San Juan de Alicante, Spain.

Purpose Of Review: Psychotropic-related sexual dysfunction is a quite frequent issue in clinical practice, mainly in chronic treatments affecting both quality of life and compliance.

Recent Findings: In the last decade fortunately antidepressants and antipsychotic compounds have been deeply screened in order to identify sexual adverse events that were commonly underdiagnosed and previously underestimated by clinicians and perhaps by pharmaceutical companies as well. Some differences in the mechanism of action are the nucleus of this poorly tolerated adverse event. Read More

Men with Sexual Problems and Their Partners: Findings from the International Survey of Relationships.

New England Research Institutes, Inc., 480 Pleasant Street, Watertown, MA, 02472, USA.

Epidemiologic studies of sexual function problems in men have focused on the individual male and related sociodemographic characteristics, individual risk factors and lifestyle concomitants, or medical comorbidities. Insufficient attention has been given to the role of sexual and relationship satisfaction and, more particularly, to the perspective of the couple as causes or correlates of sexual problems in men or women. Previously, we reported results of the first large, multi-national study of sexual satisfaction and relationship happiness in 1,009 midlife and older couples in five countries (Brazil, Germany, Japan, Spain, U.
