Letter to the Editor
Sir: The suggestion that psychostimulants, particularly
methylphenidate, could reverse the sexual side effects associated
with serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) is intriguing.
Empirically, since other dopamine agonists (such as
amantadine) may be effective for relieving sexual dysfunction
associated with SSRIs, it seems reasonable to assume that methylphenidate
would be effective as well.
However, in our case series we were using methylphenidate
primarily to augment the antidepressant response to SSRIs.
