Is there anyone that frequents the board who recovered? Or that shows up occasionally/every few months? Also, I was looking at some older posts and saw names that I don't see anymore. Do these people recover and just bail without saying anything? That seems a bit shitty to me. If those people have recovered and just stopped talking about it, that would actually be a good sign because from what I can see, nobody is really getting much better. I'm still staying optimistic though!

I just took a look at some of his posts about how he was cured. To me, it looks like he might not have had PSSD at all. He was saying that he thinks he actually had low level stress consistently and that he feels better from taking B vitamins for methylation. It's a nice thought though.

Pete described his cure with low-dose ssri.

Hmm. Once again, it seems like that might not have been PSSD at all. I'm not trying to be mean or a pessimist but it comes off that through text. I do think there is a solution to this but some of the stuff that people say on these boards just sound inane to me. If I know anything about PSSD at all from what I've read, using an SSRI to fix PSSD is like throwing gasoline on a burning house, hahaha.

Yes, it actually does sound weird.

Some days ago GHOST mentioned that he spoke to researcher that reversed pssd like symptoms of young rats with given them ssri again when they are adults or with estrogen threatment.

Espacially the second alternative seems to be really interesting and shows that SERT probably is an important factor because Estrogen raises SERT drastically.

PSSD is weird in the sense that it affects people differently.

Using an SSRI to fix PSSD might be a solution for some people with PSSD. Myself for example I still had a high sex drive when on Effexor but extreme erectile dysfunction. It was once I came off of effexor that PSSD kicked in. Zero sex drive + erectile dysfunction= PSSD

Just think of the millions of people that are taking SSRI's that do not have this problem. If everyone that took an SSRI were to get PSSD it would be a global epidemic.

Ill agree that some members on here probably dont have PSSD, and are only experiencing the sexual side effects of an SSRI. So they assume they have PSSD but once they come off or try something new they return to normal so they believe they've been cured.

Whoa, really? I didn't know that about estrogen. I need to go to school to understand all of this shit. I'm glad somebody is doing some real research that I'm not capable of. I plan on becoming more involved from now on though.

Also member siebs mentioned that he got tremendous benefits with forskolin which also increases SERT.

Is it really wrong to avoid serotonin? Zero/Foxx always said that we shouldn't avoid serotonin
