Our expert says:
As I so often have to point out - and it really annoys me that so many doctors apparently don't thinkm of this issue or ask about it - ALL Ad;s CAN produce sexual disturbances including loss of libido in SOME paope ; NONE of them does it in everyone. So a good doctor should ALWAYS ask about this possible side-effect, along with other side-effects, and if it is a significant problem, a GP should ABSOLUTELY ALWAYS get the advice of a specialist psychiatrist, and switch to a different type of AD to find a way of treating the depression without causing this problem.
And of course CBT counselling is very effective in treating depression, at least as good as AD meds, and does not have this side-effect
