Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors (citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), or sertraline (Zoloft)) cause worse sexual dysfunction (a common side-effect) in people with this SNP. Note that research has shown Saffron is effective at reversing the sexual dysfunction from SSRI anti-depressants.[PMID 22552758][PMID 23280545]
