We report sexual symptoms in a 44 year old man with schizophrenia who was receiving treatment with the atypical antipsychotic quetiapine. The symptoms consisted of an increased drive to masturbate and spontaneous ejaculations at night time. We discuss the potential neuro-chemical mechanisms for this and argue that quetiapine’s unique pharmacological profile may have contributed to the development of his symptoms. 
Hypersexuality associated with paliperidone.
TLDR
A case of unusual sexual symptoms in a 43-year-old female patient with schizophrenia, who was being treated with a depot formulation of paliperidone palmitate, an atypical antipsychotic medication, is reported.
Increased libido during fluvoxamine treatment
TLDR
The present findings suggest that organic brain dysfunction could be a risk factor for the development of vascular dementia and sexual stimulation associated with fluvoxamine administration has been rarely reported.
Two Cases of Hypersexuality Probably Associated with Aripiprazole
TLDR
It is argued that aripiprazole's unique pharmacological profile, partial agonism with high affinity at dopamine D2-receptor, may have contributed to the development of hypersexuality symptoms in two female patients with schizophrenia who were receiving treatment with aripIPrazole.
Aripiprazole induced hypersexuality in a 24-year-old female patient with schizoaffective disorder?
CASE REPORT The 24-year-old female college student was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder in 2003 after 2 episodes with auditory hallucinations, delusions of persecution, social withdrawal,
Sexual dysfunction related to psychotropic drugs: a critical review--part I: antidepressants.
TLDR
There is consistent evidence to suggest that antidepressant medication adversely affects one or more of the 3 phases of sexual response (desire, arousal and orgasm) and Clinicians must be aware of drug-induced sexual dysfunction.
Sexual dysfunction related to psychotropic drugs: a critical review part II: antipsychotics.
TLDR
The reviewed literature shows no consistent evidence that any one antipsychotic drug has a significantly superior side effect profile over another and current information on this topic is often based on methodologically weak research.
Aripiprazole-induced behavioural disturbance related to impulse control in a clinical setting.
TLDR
A 57-yr-old male who had his first depressive episode with insomnia, loss of concentration, and suicidal ideas at age 22 yr is treated with aripiprazole for treatment of bipolar disorder and reports unusual sexual desire and a strong urge to masturbate, although he is still in a depressive state and showed no other manic symptom.
Recurrent Episodes of Paraphilic Behavior Possibly Associated With Olanzapine and Aripiprazole Treatment in a Patient With Schizophrenia
TLDR
This case illustrates that hypersexuality may be a rare adverse effect of treatment with second-generation antipsychotics, and additional research is warranted to delineate the possible neurobiological substrates of hypersexual and paraphilic disorders in patients treated with second.
Demographic and clinical correlates of sexual dysfunction among Nigerian male outpatients on conventional antipsychotic medications
TLDR
The high prevalence of sexual dysfunction found in this study suggests a need among clinicians for increased awareness and recognition of the sexual side effects in patients taking conventional antipsychotic medications.
A human laboratory study of the effects of quetiapine on subjective intoxication and alcohol craving
TLDR
This study contributes critical new information about mechanisms of response to quetiapine for alcoholism, which, in turn, can inform larger-scale studies and ultimately, clinical practice.

A new atypical antipsychotic: quetiapine-induced sexual dysfunctions
TLDR
The results suggest that SDs are an important problem using even novel antipsychotic, quetiapine, and the most frequent SD was diminished libido in both male and female subjects.
Comparison of sexual dysfunction in male schizophrenic patients maintained on treatment with classical antipsychotics versus clozapine.
TLDR
Maintenance therapy with the atypical neuroleptic clozapine may be associated with a lesser degree of sexual dysfunction than the classical antipsychotics in male outpatients with chronic schizophrenia.
Frequency of Sexual Dysfunction and Other Reproductive Side-effects in Patients with Schizophrenia Treated with Risperidone, Olanzapine, Quetiapine, or Haloperidol: The Results of the EIRE Study
TLDR
The results suggest that none of the atypical antipsychotics that were studied significantly improved sexual dysfunction and other reproductive side-effects of the conventional antipsychotic, haloperidol, in stabilized patients during long-term treatment.

TLDR
Clinical reports indicate that atypical antipsychotics are associated with a lower incidence of sexual adverse events than conventional antipsychotic drugs and that there may also be important differences between them in this regard.
Review of recent clinical studies with olanzapine.
TLDR
Data is reviewed on the pharmacokinetics, efficacy and safety of olanzapine, its benefits for quality of life, and economic aspects to assist clinicians in determining where they can usefully employ it.

BACKGROUND Neuroleptic treatment in schizophrenic patients is associated with sexual dysfunction. However, it is not clear to what extent the psychiatric disorder and/or the pharmacologic treatment
Subjective utility ratings of neuroleptics in treating schizophrenia.
TLDR
The subjective utility of neuroleptic medications for schizophrenia is most justifiable from an institutional perspective, and side effects are significantly less bothersome than symptoms when considering costs to society.
A Randomized Open-Label Study of the Impact of Quetiapine Versus Risperidone on Sexual Functioning
TLDR
Sexual dysfunction was less common in patients treated with quetiapine than with risperidone, and direct questioning about sexual functioning is necessary to avoid underestimating the frequency of sexual side effects in patients with schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders.
Prolactin levels in male schizophrenic patients treated with risperidone and haloperidol: a double-blind and randomized study
TLDR
Risperidone is associated with a robust effect on prolactin secretion in contrast to the conventional antipsychotic haloperidol, and Prolactin monitoring during ris peridone treatment should be performed.
Strategies for managing sexual dysfunction induced by antidepressant medication.
TLDR
For men with antidepressant-induced erectile dysfunction, the addition of sildenafil appears to be an effective strategy, and small numbers of trials assessing each strategy failed to show statistically significant improvements in sexual dysfunction compared with placebo.
