oa SA Pharmaceutical Journal - A review of medicines that affect sexual performance : review
Medicine-induced sexual dysfunction is an adverse effect that is relatively common, and yet is poorly understood. Several classes of medicine cause or contribute to sexual dysfunction in both men and women. Sexual dysfunction attributed to the use of medicine can be a major cause of non-adherence to treatment. Healthcare professionals often find it difficult to discuss sexual function with their patients, and patients may also find this to be an awkward topic to raise. However, it is an important issue that needs to be understood and managed accordingly.
