Nowadays, we talk more and more often about sexual
disorders, and depression in one of the possible etiologies of them.
Depression could lead to sexual disorders or induce them indirectly.
Paradoxically, depression treatments, such as tricyclic antidepressant or SSRI
could induce this kind of disorder. Tianeptine, the only molecule
representative of this pharmacological class, has proved its good
acceptability on the libido, as shown by the results of a meta-analysis.
The respect of the sexual function is essential to obtain a good observance of
the antidepressant treatment.
