Altered testosterone levels associated with venlafaxine use: a case report

Kimmyben Patel, Ankitkumar B Patel, Pokhraj P Suthar, Kewal A Mistry.


Sexual dysfunction is a frequent side effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. However, accompanying the alteration in testosterone levels is uncommon. We present the case of a patient with major depressive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder, whose symptoms were well-controlled with venlafaxine-extended release (150 mg/d). Because of low testosterone levels, the venlafaxine treatment was tapered off.

Key words: Venlafaxine, testosterone level, psychiatrics
