Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors present three case reports illustrating that a conservative approach to anorgasmia induced by effective treatment with the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) phenelzine can result in spontaneous remission. Precipitously stopping phenelzine or adding another medication to counteract the side effect can be avoided. The apparent synchrony between the development of the side effect of anorgasmia and positive treatment response may represent a valuable clinical marker.
