Supported by Cardiff University, UK, RxISK is pleased to announce that we will be setting up the world’s first scientific medical research into the neurological correlates of PSSD in human subjects. Find out how you can get involved:

Good to see some (very) distant light in the dark tunnel.

 

I think in this article is one more good information:

 

That Dutch PSSD community made Dutch drug regulator aware of thist problem

(information from link added by JamesB)

 

That is one government that is aware of this problem, 200 countries to go.

A mod will probably move this post. Just looking at the 'tag' it seems as though you already started a topic on this in February of this year. Always helps to do a search for existing topics before posting.

 

Hope you are doing well!

On SurvivingAntidepressants.org, we have a number of people who have recovered from PSSD. My belief is that just as most people recover from antidepressant withdrawal syndrome within a few months to a few years, they recover from PSSD.

 

PSSD is a component of the autonomic dysruption caused by antidepressant use and withdrawal, as are the symptoms of withdrawal syndrome.

 

I myself have recovered from PSSD. After coming off Paxil in October 2004, among other withdrawal symptoms I had the absolute genital anesthesia, which lasted for perhaps a year. Very slowly, genital sensation came back.

 

Then I experienced perhaps 3 years of “ghost” orgasms, in which arousal is followed by what would have been an orgasm but instead, a non-event lacking sensation, and then a refractory period.

 

Following that, I had perhaps a 4-year phase of “ghost” orgasms with occasional weak orgasms, which gradually became stronger and more frequent.

 

At about 9 years post-Paxil, I was fully recovered from PSSD. As I was menopausal before I came off Paxil, my belief is younger people with full complements of sexual hormones will tend to recover faster. However, recovery from PSSD can be almost imperceptibly gradual, which can be masked or even impeded by the very understandable frustration, anger, and despair brought on by the condition.
