Sexual side-effects are rarely listed, and very common. Meta-analyses seem to show a 40-70% likelihood with major drug classes like MAOis, TCAs, and SSRIs. I doubt that the other TCAs are any better on these side-effects. Amitriptyline and clomipramine I know can cause them.

> Nortriptyline proved to have one noticeable side effect for me that I've seen little mention of. Namely, sexual dysfunction, specifically weakened and short-lived erections along with some loss of libido. It was barely mentioned in the patient prescription printout I received with just a brief reference under the rare side effect listing and an admonition to call your doctor immediately (which my pdoc didn't understand at all).
