The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of trazodone in the treatment of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor(s) associated sexual dysfunction. The secondary domains assessed were the relationship between 5-HT2A polymorphism and treatment efficacy.
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||The Efficacy of Trazodone for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor-induced Sexual Dysfunction
Primary Outcome Measures:
- The differences between trazodone and placebo in the Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale-Chinese Version scale at the end of week 6 were used as the primary study outcomes. [ Time Frame: week 0 and week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- The association between 5-HT2A polymorphism and the changes in Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale-Chinese Version scale were evaluated. [ Time Frame: week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
The secondary domains assessed were the difference between trazodone and placebo in the Clinical Global Impression scale, 10-point Visual Analogue Scale, Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, and Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale at the end of week 6. Besides, relationships between 5-HT2A polymorphism and the changes in Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale-Chinese Version scale were also evaluated.
