    PSSD Post-SSRI sexual dysfunction

    Galvanar09 I get what you are saying. I have seen small improvements in 3 years, but nothing major. I feel my libido and overall PSSD has gone from about 5% of how I used to be pre PSSD, to about 12% of how I used to be pre PSSD. So not much. How much would you say your PSSD has improved in the last 3 years using percentages?

    Anubhav: Lexapro cold turkey

    @dj2010 I wish it was that easy.... We are in relationship from the last 3 years... We have Soo much of memories, shared Soo much We both loved each other Soo much I don't want to give up on all that just because of withdrawal that is a temporary situation She's caring, she understands m going through something but my way of handling situations is just fucked up but it ain't my fault and I don't blame her also... I mean who wouldn't get frustrated if one moment the person is all okay and the next moment he's freaking out on small issues everytime I think my brain was used to that poison escitalopram for handling stressful situations.... Now when it's not getting that, it is behaving in a very chaotic way At one moment I feel happy, I get feelings, goosebumps, I get excited and then next moment I feel nothings worth it, there's no point of life and when a stressful situation comes then don't ask my brain just gives me Soo much of random thoughts & over thinks Soo much phewwww

    methuselah: Hi all! Brief intro and advice?

    Methuselah, how are you feeling now? I hope things have stabilized.
  9. Yes, actually I saw a psychologist after this and the way we worked was useful, at one point I told him how I was putting strategies and coping mechanisms in place and he said "that's CBT", so I was doing it naturally. I guess it boils down to the person and the way they use it that makes the difference.

  11. Hello, Help and support needed after 3 bad nights of sleep Just an update. I've felt largely better over the past 3 weeks. I've been charting my sleep and while nights where I sleep all night are a minority, most nights I have around 5 hours and can jut about cope. But I'm so easily triggered into a night of 1-2 hours and then feel I just can't function - last night was one of these and I feel terrible It's made me come back here to research reinstating. I really don't want to as I've now had a few Somatic Experiencing sessions and I feel it's going to be really helpful for making me feel physically safe again (my nervous system is trapped in the fear response, whether due to withdrawals or past trauma I'm not sure). But I can only have one more session before a long summer break, plus is isn't a quick fix, and this morning I feel at the end of my tether! Then again, some nights I go out like a light and feel normal during the day. It's so up and down and I feel trapped in this cycle So UK sertraline/zoloft people, how did you taper using your NHS pills? What's the lowest dose I can get from the Dr and then can I divide it up with a pill cutter? Suggested minimum doses? (I was on the lowest prescribed dose of 50mg for a year and have been off for 4 months with withdrawal insomnia in cycles for 3 months). Help!

    Anubhav: Lexapro cold turkey

    looks like you had delayed withdrawals, withdrawal can hit a few months later, it did with me 3 months after my last dose, be risky reinstating now, sounds like you are doing very well though the relationship with your girlfriend sounds stressful and more trouble than its worth, plenty more fish in the sea as they say best just focusing on self while going through withdrawal,

    Anubhav: Lexapro cold turkey

    Okay this is going to be a big reply.....I need some help.... So here's the thing Okay I quit my escitalopram 5mg in December, everything was fine till in February I had an argument with my gf, I was ignoring her so she decided to get my attention by putting a status that she's Going on for a date with some other guy and I reacted in a very rude way guess that's what these pills make you do So she blocked me, that's when it got hit in my head bam.... I started panicking felt like everything is moving away So I got emotional and she said she needs some time, I said okay, then we started talking again on phone... Things were getting good but I was kinda feeling nervous, so every now and then I used to msg her whether she wants to stay or leave, she said not to eat her head as she has already said she needs time but still we were talking on phone it was okay, I was sleeping well, eating well Then in March I told one of my friend that how my relationship is going she said to meet my gf and sort out the things, then I messaged my gf and told her that I talked to one of my friend and ol..... But here's the thing my gf went to other state last year for her BSc in nursing, so I couldn't meet her.... Then my gf said everything that is happening is happening because of me the way I behaved ND ol which I think she was right about because I did behave in a very rude manner to her in November and December not giving her time, was busy with my own things Nd one thing I noticed while on these pills I always used to think about future, doing many stuffs at a time like I decided to try in acting but after few months I began learning direction, photography, script writing... I never stayed at one thing Anyway then I asked my gf again on whatsapp wt she wants to do, she said we should separate our paths, as she doesn't feels the same way and ol.... Then again bam I started panicking, crying, I called her and she said it's over, move on and she cut the phone and blocked me from whatsapp.... This is when I started vomiting every morning when I used to wake up, stopped eating food, looking at food I felt like throwing up And I used to think about her Day And Night, then I began sending her Sms and start calling her again and again.... One day she picked up the call and we had a nice talk and we started talking again, but every now and then she used to make me jealous by telling that she's talking to this guy on insta and this guy said this to her, and I just could not handle this all these jealousy type situations I just start to panic and my body used to shake and my mouth went dry, so from here my withdrawal began I guess I used to just worry about loosing her and just started getting anxious over and over but still we were talking, chatting.... In short everything was okay, beside some random day she used to try and make me jealous and that used to trigger my symptoms more So From March 22 I had my exams for which I had to go to my hometown , so I decided I ll study hard and give my best.... So I used to have my written exams first and then practical but this year the pattern changed, this year it was like first practical then written exams, so I had my practicals from 18 and I got to know about it on 17th March.... Ohhhh man my anxiety it just went like rocket, I was like how m gonna manage, wt if I fail, I can not fail, then began sweaty palms and diarrhea.... I had Soo much of sweaty palms and feet that my slippers used to get away from my feet while walking.... Anyhow I gave my practical somehow, I passed in it.... My exams were going pretty good but all this while I was a anxious freak with symptoms like sweaty hands, dry mouth, and diarrhea... I always used to talk to my gf after giving my exams.... One day wt happened I texted her and she didn't reply and I said wowww you just saw my msg and you can't reply, she said yes.... Again bam I lost it, I said block me then, I ll go from your life she said she won't block me and I need to stfu.... So I started calling her, she rejected my call then I began texting her on whatsapp like pick up the call ND ol she blocked me on whatsapp too.... So next day it turns out that she was having video chat with her mom at the moment that's why she didn't reply to me at the first place.... So from 22march to 24th April I had my exams, all this one month I went through hell, sweaty hands, diarrhea, fear of everything, weird dreams, used to wake up in the middle of night with panic and thinking that I just want my girl and every now and then my gf used to mock me by saying m not the one ND she ll slowly slowly forget me for which I actually don't blame her, she's always been kinda like this... She always tried to make me jealous that I feel was okay coz she's the Cute and Innocent girl but this time all these words just used to kill me I mean literally kill me coz my brain could not handle all this So on 24th April I gave my last paper of mathematics and I was Soo excited to talk to my girl after exam, I asked her to unblock me... She didn't unblock me, idk why maybe I would have said something before I don't remember but when she didn't unblock me I started panicking again and again, started sending her msgs and she didn't reply.... Again no sleep for many many days... So I came back to Mumbai and when my mom saw me she was like wth has happened to you, I lost 8 kg of weight, my skin became dark, because of dry mouth my teeth became yellow, charm on my face was gone completely So in May some of my symptoms subsided, like anxiety wasn't 24/7,sweaty palms were not there, diarrhea wasn't there.... So the mistake I did was I started Stalking my gf on social media and my symptoms used to get triggered when I saw she has commented something and ol.... I should not have done this coz now I feel my brain is just not ready to handle such emotions, anyway this lead to extreme insomnia, and deattachment from world, I could not watch TV, anyway I was still talking with my gf and things were going ryt, when I used to have a nice chat with her I felt happy, so for few days this continued and I started feeling happy, started eating properly, started sleeping well, loss of memory was there but things were heading in proper direction She was to come in mumbai on July 1st and said she would reconsider about our relationship but I was anxious how m gonna meet her coz it's a 2 hour drive from my home if I want to see her, where we used to meet in Mumbai i.e marine drive and I fear I ll get a panic attack as mumbai is crowded too and now it's been 17 days and I haven't met her, she asked me to meet her but I just couldn't go ๐Ÿ˜ขand last week she went out with a guy who asked her to meet, and when I saw the status again I overreacted body went cold, headache, I just could not handle it had a argument then she blocked me.... Insomnia has come back, not feeling like to eat, diarrhea .... Because of this argument she said that she was thinking about to reconsider it but now she thinks it was a mistake :(.... And I just hate myself for not able to control situations like this or over reacting... M just ******* it over again and again by making such mistakes ๐Ÿ˜ข I don't Wanna loose her, I know even she doesn't wants to loose me but the way m reacting its just making everything worse.... Now she ll go back to her college on 28th July and I just hate it that I had such a nice chance to make it work out but I ****ed it up... I can't help it ๐Ÿ˜ข I m not able to handle such situations..... I have told her that I ll meet her tomorrow but again m freaking out to go this far from my home.... Someone help me Today also she messaged me and asked how m feeling.... She's such a sweetheart

    Sorry for my english. Think the Word may be interval training (HIT). It will increase /regenerate things that helps your hormones (growt hormones, testo etc) and overall better blood flow. Interval training is a little bit tricky to start with since many think its boring and forced. But its not when you learn how to do it.

    PSSD Post-SSRI sexual dysfunction

    Havent read full thread but writing this anyways. IF you havent tried running splits 3 times/weeks I advise you to try it. Try for one month and see. Its can be fun too but start slow.

    Hyperbaric oxygen treatment

    it was a hard chamber, I am certain it did cause detoxification because the day after I developed intense mouth ulcers, I know they are a common sign of detox, something to do with toxins being pushed out through skin, I wont be trying the treatment again until I am much stronger, when I do try again I will try at a lower ATA and a shorter session and build it up, luckily my sleep is now returning to baseline since I had the session,

    PSSD Post-SSRI sexual dysfunction

    At times I do, there are times where I can get an erection but itโ€™s forced if that makes sense? My libido is definitely different to what it was before. I seem to have good and bad days but my function has not returned 100%
  23. We don't tend to recommend many herbs or supplements here because because in withdrawal our systems can be very sensitive and react in unexpected ways. Individual responses can vary hugely - what helps one person could be terrible for someone else. If you decide to try anything it's best to try only one thing at a time and start at a very small dose, to see how your system reacts to it.
  24. How about starting with 5 beads? Any Effexor capsule will do -- but always take beads from a consistent dosage capsule from the same manufacturer. We need to see how you do before determining how long you might be taking a bit of Effexor.
  25. SO exciting Rosetta....the 'new' you are having is beautiful!!! It seems many of your clearest windows have been in your memories and thoughts of all you are experiencing and feeling...its lovely!! Happy for you!!! ๐Ÿ’œ
