Fetzima and Sexual Side Effects

Final Thoughts

There is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will develop sexual side effects with Fetzima. In addition, depression itself can cause sexual dysfunction. Therefore, it can be difficult to know if sexual problems are due to the drug, depression, or a combination of the two.
If you develop sexual side effects while taking Fetzima, or if any sexual problems you had at the beginning of treatment worsen or do not improve, talk with your healthcare provider. Although it may be embarrassing to discuss your sexual health with your healthcare provider, he or she can help you manage these troubling reactions. Do not stop taking your medication or reduce your dosage on your own. Doing so may cause other serious problems, including a return or worsening of your depression symptoms.
