Antipsychotic medication and sexual functioning (REMEDY)

Lots of people who take antipsychotic medication find they experience sexual problems. Both men and women can be affected by sexual problems, which may include a lower sex drive or getting less pleasure from sex. At the moment, we don't know the best way to help people. One possible option is to change to a different medication that may cause fewer sexual problems.

The REMEDY study will compare a group of people that stay on the same antipsychotic medication to another group that changes to a different one to see if there is a difference between the two groups. We will also offer all people advice and support aimed at helping improve their sexual functioning.


We are looking for:

participants who must be:

  • currently taking antipsychotic medication to treat a condition like psychosis
  • experiencing sexual problems 


  • London
  • Yorkshire & the Humber
  • North East & Cumbria


We will cover travel expenses for meeting the study researchers and completing  questionnaires. You will be given a £10 voucher half-way through the study and a £20 voucher at the end of the study to say thank you for taking part.
