Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My name is Tomasz and I'm 30 man from Poland.

 

I took sertraline for 3 months almost two years ago and lost all sexuall funcions. No libido, severe ed, pleasureless orgasms, total genital numbness and also emotional numbness.

 

I do not have any wave and windows - just constant emptyness and disconnection from my sexuallity. Pre-ssri it was very strong part of my personality. 

 

I do not believe in any recovery story - its been two years and not a single sign of progress..cant event get it up to porn...

01.12.2018 - 01.03.2019 - Took sertraline and than fluvosamine for major depression. 

 

Got SEVERE PSSD (no libido, no erections, pleasureless orgasma, total genital anesthesia, emotional numbness, lost of personality)

 

No wave and windows, no improvement so far. Just lije 1-2% in numbness in first two months post quitting. 

 

Im suicidal because of pssd. I dont believe in recovery since my state didnt improve in any significant way.

@Naczoz  It has been explained to you several times that you are only allowed to make posts on this thread until such time that the management decides you can post elsewhere. Until this happens any post you make anywhere else will be deleted, and if this continues to happen you will be issued additional warning points. When you reach a total of four (4) warning points you will automatically be banned from the site and not allowed to return.  We have very few rules here, but we require our members to adhere to them if they wish to participate.


20 years on Paxil starting at 20mg and working up to 40mg. Sept 2011 started 10% every 6 weeks taper (2.5% every week for 4 weeks then hold for 2 additional weeks), currently at 7.9mg. Oct 2011 CTed 15oz vodka a night, to only drinking 2 beers most nights, totally sober Feb 2013.

Since I wrote this I have continued to decrease my dose by 10% every 6 weeks (2.5% every week for 4 weeks and then hold for an additional 2 weeks). I added in an extra 6 week hold when I hit 10mg to let things settle out even more. When I hit 3mgpw it became hard to split the drop into 4 parts so I switched to dropping 1mgpw (pill weight) every week for 3 weeks and then holding for another 3 weeks.  The 3 + 3 schedule turned out to be too harsh so I cut back to dropping 1mgpw every 4 weeks which is working better.

Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017
