Sexual dysfunction (SD) is a common side effect of antipsychotics. The community pharmacist assessed a patient with SD and suggested a change in prescription from risperidone and haloperidol to aripiprazole that improved SD. This is the first report on amelioration of antipsychotic-induced SD by early intervention by community pharmacists.
