SSRI - part of treatment for sexual offenders


Recommended Posts

"Selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may be indicated in sexual offenders with a paraphilic disorder and comorbid depression or anxiety because they may cause sexual dysfunction in some patients while ameliorating depression and anxiety symptoms.

However, while there is evidence that SSRIs may cause sexual dysfunction in some who take them, “almost all SSRI-related sexual dysfunction data derive from studies involving male and female patients afflicted with depressive and anxiety disorders and not paraphilias,” Saleh pointed out.

In addition, they may not reduce a person's sexual urges, but simply interfere with sexual arousal and/or orgasm, which wouldn't necessarily stop a sexual offender from reoffending, Saleh noted. That is why he recommended their use only for sexual offenders with anxiety and depression."




Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey. 


There is a crack in everything ..That's how the light gets in :)
