They cannot admit it because then they admit their negligence, their harm. Hannah Arendt, the German philosopher called it "the banality of evil" after eichmann said of authorising Hitler's final solution, "I was just following orders".  I'm sorry everyone is going through this. 

I gave up on talking to psychiatrists about the damage done to me by anti depressants. They know everything & its all in my head - how wonderful they have a complete & irrefutable understanding of how the human brain works. I'm sure that's what they thought back when they were performing lobotomy's on unsuspecting vulnerable children. God forbid if the drugs they are prescribing actually do more harm than good, these people would be out of jobs and we cant have that!

How long do sexual side effects last after stopping?

When sexual side effects persist after the antidepressant is stopped, there is no specific timescale for recovery.

Some people report a certain degree of natural improvement over a period of time – sometimes months or years after stopping the antidepressant. However, the term “recovery” in this sense can be misleading as closer scrutiny often reveals that there hasn’t been a full return to pre-drug state.

Many sufferers fail to recover to any significant degree, with some having had the problem for over 20 years without any sign of improvement.

For some people, PSSD may be permanent.

 

Thinking I fall into the above category.... nothing to see here same old thing.

if all else fails remember this quote from the quote page I did not get a link but I will

“If is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it”

Thanks Noloft, your positivity is uplifting :) 

I try to have the same mindset as you - people are a lot worse off in this crazy world. I also hold onto hope as in 2 years there has been SLIGHT day to day improvement for me and also some ‘windows’

 

I just wondered if some of you are in the UK? (If I’m allowed to ask)

 

Sending love and hope to you all guys

So, posting here on behalf of my girlfriend.

She just turned 50 and is menopausal since about one year.

She's absolutely not depressed but four months ago her doctor prescribed her Zoloft as she was suffering of  light anxiety,

but shortly after starting taking that she became unable to climax. We have been reading about this side effect a lot and she decided to

quit taking Zoloft after about a couple months - after all, she was not really in need for an anti depressant medication in the first place!

Now, after about one month since she stopped taking it, still she is unable to have an orgasm.

She can always  reach the climax point but it never ... triggers.

While I understand that PSSD is an unknown territory so it is impossible to know how long it would take to recover

from the situation, I would like to hear if any other woman in this forum has had this exact same situation

(arriving almost there but then it does not happen), and if has eventually recovered from it.

Thanks in advance

Rick

I think we have to be very careful when we say. I am nowhere near being healed but in my most ill periods this statement used to invoke terror in me. Healing has sure been slow for me but there is progress. What do other's think?

In withdrawal people have what here long ago coined "neuro emotions" just about anything can invoke terror... let alone the idea of not ever having an orgasm or real man woman type relationship again... to tell you the truth while it is or was or can be a huge part of a normal life sex was not that big a deal when I was in hard withdrawal sex was the last thing on my mind surviving was paramount... for the terror inducing parts of withdrawal ... could be anything... check the pages her for neuro emotions... idea there can help you get an handle on these issues.

And another story of PSSD recovery:

I It’s been so many years since I was on this forum. I decided to check in on this site because I saw a post online that mentioned a website that reminded me of this forum. PSSD honestly was one of the WD symptoms that took extremely long to recover from — I finished all meds from a short taper in May 2013, and I considered my PSSD about 70% healed in late 2017, when I started to notice hormonal changes. 

 

What honestly worked for me was time. I hope that you are doing well these days. Sometimes, things take time and the only way out is through. Sending peace and kindness.
