Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common problem in the general population, but also a symptom of both treated and untreated depression. As a side effect of antidepressant medication, erectile dysfunction appears to be one of the principal reasons for discontinuing antidepressant treatment. Avoiding or switching antidepressants is problematic, as this may lead to an increase in depressive symptoms. Our review shows that oral phosphodiesterase inhibitors are an option in treating both ED resulting from depression and from antidepressant medication.
