Drug-induced male sexual dysfunction.

Author information

  • 1Division of Urology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia.


Many commonly used drugs can interfere with male sexual function, either by decreasing libido, interfering with erectile function, or causing absent seminal emission or retrograde ejaculation. Although drug-related effects on sexual function may be difficult to distinguish from the effects of organic disease, anxiety, or depression, it is important for the physician to be aware of the drugs most commonly associated with sexual dysfunction. This article considers these drugs and the potential mechanism by which they exert their adverse effects.
