Abstract: Bupropion (Wellbutrin), nefazodone (Serzone), amitriptyline (Elavil), and moclobemide (Manerix, a reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase type A not available in the United States) have been shown to cause less sexual dysfunction than selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). [Strength of recommendation: B, based on individual randomized controlled trials (RCTs)] Among SSRIs, fluvoxamine (Luvox) may cause less sexual dysfunction than sertraline (Zoloft). [Strength of recommendation: B, single RCT] No other differences between or within classes of antidepressants have been demonstrated in RCTs.
