Depression is a common mental disorder in the general population and confers a significant burden on the individual and his or her family. Although it is a condition that is viewed as highly treatable, with numerous available treatment options, many of the agents used, may, in themselves, impose a burden in terms of associated adverse effects. Antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction is a complaint which, although it occurs with relative frequency, is often not discussed owing to the sensitive nature of the topic. It is imperative to address this issue with patients in order to ensure optimal treatment response, compliance and adherence to medication.
