Welcome to HCM Forum
I can understand dilemma u must be suffering.
Erectile dysfunction(ED) in a patient of on treatment for depression
could be either part of depression itself or medication induced.
If its part of depression itself that is ur ED problem was there before start of treatment and still continued - can be treated by increasing dose of medicine or adding another medicine to this.
If its medication induced that is ur ED problem is newer,developed recently - then it requires gradually lowering dose of ongoing medicine if it permits.If lowering dose will create problem then adding another medicine which counteracts side effect of same i.e. Cyproheptadine
,L-methylfolate or adding another antidepressant will help.
Remember that there are better and safer alternative drug option also available for change of medicine also.Discuss your problem in person with your psychiatrist
- depending on progress of illness he will suggest you best option.
Hope it helps.Best Regards.
