Quoted from the article:


Key points

  • At least 45 million adult Americans monthly fill prescriptions for SSRI antidepressants.
  • Multiple studies find the drugs “may cause sexual dysfunction in 40 to 65 percent of individuals” prescribed them.
  • Physicians must distinguish the medical condition from a relapse of depression and provide the best prospects for recovery.
