Abstract Psychotropic medication continues to be a central element in the care and treatment of people experiencing mental health problems. Nurses have a key role to play in patient education and in monitoring the benefits and side effects of prescribed drugs. However, evidence suggests that nurses tend to ignore or minimize side effects that impact on sexuality and sexual function. The focus of this article is on exploring the literature on psychotropic medication and sexual dysfunction.
