Evaluate Medications

  • Identify medications that may negatively impact the sexual response.
  • Interventions:
    • Consider a medication with less sexual side effects
      (e.g., changing SSRI to selective dopamine-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor)
    • Medication drug holiday or decreasing dose in relation to sexual activity
      (e.g., altering medication dosing over weekends only)
    • Consider addition of other medications as “antidotes” such as buproprion.
