Many commonly prescribed antidepressants can have sexual side effects resulting in lack of interest in sex, lack of arousal, or an inability to reach orgasm. We are conducting a clinical research study to better understand the effects on sexual functioning of an investigational medication which has the potential to relieve this problem when compared to an approved medication.
You are eligible to take part in this study if you meet the following requirements:
• Age 18-55 and diagnosed with having a Major Depressive Episode
• Currently taking only Celexa ® (citalopram), Paxil ® (paroxetine extended relief), or Zoloft ® (sertaline) for a minimum of 8 weeks.
• The depression must be currently stable and well controlled
• In addition, patients must be experiencing sexual side effects thought to be caused by the antidepressant medication.
What taking part in this study will involve:
The study will last 12 weeks in total and will require between 7 -10 visits to the study center.
What are the benefits of participation in this study?
While the study is taking place you will receive at no charge to you:
--a psychiatric evaluation
You will be treated, supported, and monitored carefully by a team of experienced doctors and nurses.
You will have the opportunity to treat your depression and improve your sexual functioning, while contributing to science development that can benefit others as well.
