Sexual Pharmacology: An Overview of Sexual Effects of Commonly Used Drugs and Medications
Description: This session will present an overview of sexual side effects of commonly used drugs/medications, including those purported to be pro-sexual. The presentation will also include an overview of physiological and neurohormonal bases of sexual response and of the pharmaceutic interventions available for the treatment of sexual disorders. The final discussion will focus on understanding comprehensive, integrated approaches to treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders and the need to be better informed about substances and their impact on sexual functioning.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: describe the neurohormonal and physiological mechanisms that modulate sexual response, as the basis for understanding the various chemotherapeutic interventions in the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders; identify the sexual side-effects of commonly used licit and illicit drugs, including those substances purported to have "prosexual" effects.
