Sir: The incidence of sexual dysfunction with antidepressant
drugs varies from a low of 1.9% to a high of 91%.1 Such dysfunctions
are believed to result from interactions with various neurotransmitter
systems. One of the most dramatic and potentially
disabling is priapism, which is a prolonged, dysfunctional penile
erection that is painful and impairs sexual desire.
