Depression Medication Causing ED: Are there alternatives?
The most common medicines used to treat depression are associated with ED. These include the SSRIs, SNRIs, and TCAs.
There are a few antidepressants on the market that are unlikely to cause ED.
The main ones are:
- Wellbutrin (bupropion)
- Remeron (mirtazapine)
- Viibryd (vilazodone)
- Trintellix (vortioxetine)
There are also non-pharmacologic treatments for depression that can be useful such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Talk to your doctor to see if one of these may work for you.
