Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This comprehensive reference on the sexual side effects of drugs, both positive and negative, covers the hundreds of commonly prescribed medications that cause sexual problems as well as the smaller, but growing group of drugs that has the potential to diminish sexual dysfunction. It provides a system for evaluating any and all drugs, even ones not yet on the market, by summarizing sexual mechanisms of action. Medical management of drug-induced sexual dysfunctions is covered, along with different indications for men and women. After discussion of hormonal therapies and the effects of alcohol, nicotine, and marijuana, coverage proceeds through three major classes of drugs: antihypertensives, psychotropics, and drugs for internal medicine. For each drug, the research is summarized and evaluated, and alternative medications and therapies are suggested when it seems that the sexual side effects of the drug might hinder compliance.
