Anorgasmia during pregabalin add-on therapy for partial seizures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Anorgasmia is the inability to reach orgasm during sexual intercourse, and, although it is believed that around 90% of anorgasmia problems are related to psychological issues, the use of serotoninergic drugs, including antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics, is a common cause of situational anorgasmia. Pregabalin is a new antiepileptic drug, structurally related to gabapentin, and commonly used as adjunctive therapy for partial epilepsy and treatment of neuropathic pain in adults. Herein, we describe three men with epilepsy, who experienced severe anorgasmia after pregabalin add-on treatment.
