Welcome to episode 384 of Sexology Podcast! Today I am delighted to welcome Dr. Josephine McNary. In this episode, Dr. McNary's insightful discussion sheds light on a topic often overlooked in healthcare conversations. By addressing the sexual side effects of medications, she highlights the significance of holistic patient care. Her emphasis on strategies for managing these side effects underscores the importance of proactive healthcare planning and patient education.

Moreover, Dr. McNary's focus on the crucial role of communication between patients and healthcare providers reinforces the foundation of a strong patient-provider relationship. This open dialogue can lead to better understanding, increased trust, and improved overall health outcomes.

Lastly, the mention of the potential for sexual function to return to baseline after discontinuation of medication offers hope and encouragement to those facing these challenges. It serves as a reminder that while side effects may be temporary, the benefits of proper medication management and healthcare support can lead to a positive outcome.

Dr. McNary is a board-certified general psychiatrist, working with a variety of patients in her outpatient practice. She specializes in medication management and is particularly interested in the use of complementary medicine for mood and anxiety disorders.

Dr. McNary has her BA and MA degrees from Stanford University and her MD from Tulane University. From there, she completed her psychiatry residency at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, where her training included women’s mental health, mood and anxiety disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy, and couples and family therapy.
