Penis Problems Due To Antidepressants

Penis Problems Due To Antidepressants

Penis Problems Due to Antidepressants

Advances in the mental health field have benefited countless people in recent years. The rise of antidepressants in particular has enabled many whose quality of life would otherwise have been severely impaired to experience happier, less anxious lives. Of course, as with all mediations, antidepressants do come with potential side effects which may bother some people - and surprisingly, sometimes these side effects can potentially have an impact on penis health. So for men taking antidepressants, it's valuable to know about penis problems that could possibly result.

How antidepressants work?

People often say that antidepressants "cure" depression, but that's not exactly true. What they do is work on certain brain circuits and neurotransmitters in such a way that chemicals are released that seem to ease depression.

There are a variety of antidepressants, but the ones that this article is concerned with belong to a class called reuptake inhibitors, and specifically to a subclass of these known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). The way SSRIs work is by keeping neurotransmitters "active" for a longer period of time, thus improving communication between the nerve cells. This helps the brain regulate a person's mood (including feelings of depression).

Potential penis problems of SSRIs

There are potential penis problems associated with the use of some antidepressants, especially SSRIs. Exactly how prevalent are these problems? That's hard to determine, although one study estimates that 60% of people (men and women) who take SSRIs experience sexual side effects. However, which of these side effects they experience, how often, and to what degree are harder to determine. It's also difficult to know whether the sexual issues may have been in existence before the subjects began taking the medication. (Depression itself is often a factor in the development of sexual issues.) However, it is safe to say that some men who take SSRIs will develop some form of penis problems at some time.

For men, there are three potential penis problems to know about:

- Decreased libido;

- Erectile impairment;

- Delayed or blocked ejaculation.

Why might SSRIs contribute to potential penis problems? The way they work is by raising the levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the body. But serotonin tends to decrease the amount of two other neurotransmitters, dopamine and norepinephrine, which are important contributors to feelings of desire and arousal. In addition, serotonin tends to dampen the physical sensitivity of the penis and the production of nitric oxide, which is crucial to keeping penile blood vessels open to receive the increased amounts of blood that create a firm erection.


Fortunately, penis problems from antidepressants are not permanent. If a physician believes an SSRI is causing issues, he can see if changing the dose can help. Alternatively, he may try a different antidepressant that may not have the same side effects. (Changing medication or dosage should only be done under the care of a physician.) If the problems seem to be related to something other than medication, the physician can recommend further treatments to address the root causes.

Balancing the need for antidepressants with any penis problems that may result can be a matter of trial and error. It can be made easier if the penis is already in its best health state, so it behooves a man to apply a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). For best results,, check the ingredients list for both L-arginine and L-carnitine, two important amino acids. L-arginine helps the body boost production of nitric oxide, which helps the penis accept more blood when an erection is desired. L-carnitine, meantime, helps protect against loss of sensation and allows better retention of appropriate penile sensitivity.

Size of penis does not increase after 17 to 18 years of age. Moreover average penis size of Indian males is between 4 to 5 inches. Most of the men who feel that their penis size is small usually are having normal size penis. Early ejaculation is the actual cause of the lack of sexual pleasure. Its treatable with counselling and medicines but more details are required to understand the exact nature of your problem before starting treatment.

How Are You Putting Yourself At The Risk of PCOS?

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Play video


I am Dr. Neha Jain. I am a consultant gynecologist and obstetrician and also infertility specialist.

I have done my MBBS and post graduation from Lady Hardinge Medical College, currently, I am running my own clinic with the name Dr. Jain's bliss and bless women's health clinic and Dr. Jains Pathlab in Mehrauli. I am also associated with a visiting consultant with Hospitals like Fortis Hospital and Adiva Hospital.

Today I would like to talk about PCOD that is Polycystic ovarian disease as such the incidence of PCOD reported worldwide is something around 7 to 22% but in our day to day, a clinical practice we see one out of every 2 patient is suffering from diseases. Now first I would like to talk about the symptoms of PCOS, the commonest symptom of PCOS is menstrual irregularities that are there will be daily cycles, short cycles or frequent cycle these all are signs of anovulation. The next symptoms are the signs and symptoms of hyperandrogenism, androgen is like male hormones and here we will see that the patient may have hirsutism that is excessive hair growth or male pattern baldness or acne. If you go to your doctor then your doctor will suggest you some test and on these tests, you may get reports like access free testosterone levels or free androgen index is high. Then the third symptoms is of polycystic ovaries on ultrasound, if one is having polycystic ovaries on Ultrasound that does not mean that the patient is suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, in fact in people with polycystic ovaries only about 20% have problem of PCOD, then your doctor with rule out other causes of hyperandrogenism that is hypothyroidism or hyperprolactinemia. Now PCOD is associated with mostly with obesity and the lifestyle issues, it is also seen in ladies with a family history of diabetes or metabolic syndromes. Now the foremost important thing is I would like to talk about is the treatment, of course, lifestyle modification is the first thing which we advise to our patients. In lifestyle changes patient need to do exercises and almost 30-40 minute exercises per day are recommended which have to be moderate-to-severe in nature. Then dietary changes need to be made, patients are advised to avoid fried food, fatty food, junk food than sweets, sugar, empty calories have to be avoided. Reduction in 5% of the weight can result in 50% improvement of your symptoms or chances of women to become pregnant. So that is the mainstay of treatment then next your doctor will suggest you some medication like metformin or combined oral contraceptive pills.

So, in short, that is what I wanted to talk about PCOD which is mainly a lifestyle problem and you need to improve your lifestyle in order to get rid of this disease.

In case of any problem or any such issue, you can come to my clinic or book an appointment via Lybrate. Thank you.

Hey! I Have a husky voice since I was in class 6.I underwent endoscopy and many other test for the change in voice, they said there is no nodules in my voice box but certainly there is dust particles in lungs. I actually want to hear my real voice. I like my voice very much but it's husky and I sometimes feel bad. Isn't there anyway I can get my actual voice.

General Physician, Fatehabad
Hi, As per Ayurveda, voice is controlled by Vata Dosha. For a good voice, you require regular practice and diet control. Along with that, these natural tips might help you improve your voice. 1. Ghee – Take half a teaspoon of ghee, everyday morning, before food. You need to drink a small cup of hot water after taking ghee. Avoid this in cloudy days, when you have cold, cough, fever or indigestion. 2. Chew a small piece of Yashtimadhu – Licorice is known to improve voice. Chewing a small piece of licorice, for a minute or two, helps improve voice. 3. Pepermint Tea: Peppermint tea is the best herbal tea to use if you suffer from a lot of phlegm. Phlegm is every singer’s enemy because it sticks to the back of your throat and you have to clear it while you are singing. The qualities in Peppermint tea reduce phlegm production without drying your voice out, so it’s perfect for singers. Add a little honey if you have a sore throat and it works wonders. Go for the proper leaf stuff that you have to steep in a pot. Quality tea makes a big difference. TIP: Picking fresh leaves from a peppermint plant and steeping them in hot water works just as well as dried out tea leaves. 4. Steaming: Steaming is an age-old secret and it works a treat. Just boil up some water, grab a cooking pot and throw you’re a towel over your head as you breathe in that steamy goodness. If you’re really suffering from a cold, add two drops of Eucalyptus Oil and it will clear you up instantly. Just make sure you don’t put too much in otherwise its vapour can sting your eyes. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

I have a sharp pain in my heels from last one week. The uric acid level is 6.2. Thanks.

I have a sharp pain in my heels from last one week. The uric acid level is 6.2. Thanks.
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.
