Letter to the Editor

Sir: The case report by Drs. Ashton and Bennett (January 1999 issue) is a welcome addition to the body of literature regarding the treatment of antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction. One point needs clarification: the authors state that their cases possibly represent the first patients treated with sildenafil for antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction. To date, an open trial and 3 case reports have described the successful use of sildenafil to treat a most unwanted side effect.
