If you develop any sexual side effects while taking an antipsychotic
, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. Although it may be embarrassing, your healthcare provider can help you manage this troubling side effect. It is very important that you do not stop taking your antipsychotic or reduce the dosage without first talking to your healthcare provider.
After discussing your sexual side effects, as well as the benefits of your antipsychotic treatment, you and your healthcare provider can come up with a strategy that is best for your particular situation.
