My story and saffron tea or capsule

HI, Ante from Croatia here.
My friends, I dont know even how to start my story. Sorry for my bad english. You are all here probably cause of deppresion, you took that terrible pill and end up with PSSD but my story is different, I got sexual dysfunction because of antpsychotics, risperidone. I was young healty boy who played football and loved girls,only two important things in my life. And one day my hell started, I got twitches of muscles and eyelid, as time was passing my symptoms were even worse, my legs start to weaken and one day I almost collapsed. I google it and found that might I have multiple sclerosis or even ASL (Stephen Hawking) and I decided to took my own life to end fear and suffering. But I failed and my sister called police and they come to my home and forcefully drive away to mental hospital and they lock me up there. They done some tests like CT of brain and EEG and find nothing so they said that is all in my head and psychological problem, not physical, not some disease like MS and they give me risperdal. By the way, I read all threads in this general forum in two weeks. (RIP Dark) So, I was in biggest mental hospital in Croatia with all kind of lunatics and I was scared. But that is just beginning of this hell. I was in room with 3 guys and all of them were taking antidepressants and told me that they have sexual problems like no erection, etc. So I was scared even more. I was there for 2 months so I had plenty of time and was trying to collect information about drugs that they were giving to us like candy. Can you believe me that 80% of people I talked to had some sexual dsyfuntcion like no erection, loss of libido, desire or retrograde ejecalute. So this is lie or misinformation on this forum that you are tiny tiny number of unlucky people who got this terrible disorder, a PSSD. That happened this year between april 1. and 25. of May. To continue, I came home finding out that I can not feel plesaure, no sperm and so weak erection and when I watched porn, sex was looking like disgusting thing and I was seeing people like things because I had no fucking emotions, . Later on I find all info and read dr. Peter Breggin books on psychiatric drugs and how they work(especially AD and AP). Now Im in bigger deeper shit than I was before when I thought that I had MS or ALS. I wish Im dead now. So, I stayed in contact with some patients from hospital and one of them told me that SAFFRON TEA helped him to regain libido and to maintain erection . Poor guy almost killed himself because of this months ago. He was on Zyprexa and Zoloft. Maybe it will help us, I asked local herbalist and he said that saffron tea is excellent for eyesight and for erective dysfunction, also working acts as aphrodisiac. Even on youtube I find it is good for PSSD. There is saffron capsule also to buy. I researched a lot last 3 months I found out that there is not only problems with hormone and neurotransmitters but with shrinkage of the brain studied with MRI. DR Peter Breggin also talked about that. we are in deep shit if some cells, or receptors just died. When you cut hand of human beings, new one will never grow in future. I think we are in that kind of problem. Maybe this tea will work, just suggesting Im no expert. In the end is terrible to know that we are living in world where Eli Lily, Johnson and Johnson and Janssen make billions dollars based on human health and life and destroying them. It is not only about PSSD , it is diabetes, short life span, addiction to drugs, even more deppresion after discontinuation, rapidly decreaseing sperm count and so on. I cant believe how some reasonble human being can defend them and said that problem is genetic or LUCK. Cheers to user lost soul, my favorite person here. Good night.

Mainstream is a tough ask, maybe some of the psychology websites might be more open. Not that I am a fan of it's promotion of the same industry maybe its one way to publish https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog ... t-millions

If those people inside the hospital were still taking medication it is not PSSD, since the definition of PSSD is POST SSRI sexual dysfunction. Everyone knows that SSRI (and other psychiatric medications) cause sexual dysfunction while you are taking them.

I m touch in some of guys and we are talking on regular basis every week. They told me that they have still persistent problem with erection and loss of lust, desire and so on. It is PSSD then. One of guy quit CT. I told you guys it is not 0.5% of us. Number is much much bigger and some people especially girls, women can not release this disorder. They think is from depression.

The numbers have been gone over before and see no reason to go over them again. We are a minuscule subset of people that have taken SSRIs. Trying to exaggerate the number of suffers does NOT make PSSD any more real nor help our cause in anyway.

Same with the conspiracy theory talk. It does NOT help. Again, it does MORE damage. Stop and think for a moment... you go into a Dr and describe whats going on. Obviously his first thought is going to be "person wouldn't be on SSRIs if was not dealing with psyche issues." Then start laying on all this conspiracy crap... what conclusion would any other person come up with? This is one those cases where perception trumps reality. Its just giving the powers to be more ammo in chalking our condition up to being a symptom of a mental illness.

Our results indicated that the aqueous extract of saffron (50, 100, 150 and 250 mg/kg, i.p.) increased brain dopamine concentration in a dose-dependent manner compared with saline. In addition, the brain glutamate concentration increased in response to the highest dose of the extract (250 mg/kg, i.p.). Interestingly, the extract had no effect on brain serotonin or norepinephrine concentration. Our findings show that the aqueous extract of saffron contains an active component that can trigger production of important neurotransmitters in brain, namely, dopamine and glutamate.
