A community pharmacist's intervention in antipsychotic drug-induced
sexual dysfunction in a patient with schizophrenia
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.
