Hello
Antidepressants do cause sexual dysfunction in males .However this problem is completely reversible once medication is stopped after the completion of treatment. If it is very distressing, you can request your psychiatrist to prescribe bupropion which is helpful in overcoming sexual side effects caused by medications like fluoxetine.
