A new Reddit post received in few hours hundreds of "Likes" and more than 70 comments, most of them saying "I'm a sufferer but I didn't know that my problem was called PSSD".
Again we have confirm that PSSD is more common than believed and the biggest problem is that we are here without fighting to spread awareness.

This is a good step in spreading awareness. I'm sure once PSSD is established as a real condition within the medical community, we will find that it is a lot more common than once assumed.

Good job, you don't need to argue with them. Idiots exist everywhere. People who say that every doctor would deny the existence of PSSD are just dumb. It shows that they even don't care to see that literature about PSSD exists which proves that not every doctor denies it. In my case about 50% (or more) of the doctors I met believed me. One doctor told me that every medicine could cause damage and no doctor could deny this.
Even the prescribing information for Prozac has acknowledged that PSSD exists and that there are no adequate studies.
Most doctors that say PSSD does not exist have never read the literature or have not met more than one person with alleged PSSD.

There is no single study that gives evidence that PSSD could not exist. Rather the contrary. I have never heard of a placebo-controlled SSRI study where probands from the placebo group as well as from the SSRI group thought that they had PSSD. So even if PSSD was a mental disorder, you would EXPECT that some probands from an SSRI study (with many participants) would say that they have PSSD because WE exist. But there is no study with this outcome. This proves that the existence of PSSD has never been examined by a placebo-controlled SSRI study.

Saying that PSSD does not exist is kind of the same logic as saying that there can't be life anywhere else in the universe only because you have never seen it / can't imagine it. And at the moment there is even much more concrete evidence that PSSD exists than that life somewhere else exists.

It doesn't matter if some random people on the internet deny its' existence. We know it is real. But this doesn't matter. We need experiments in the medical literature to prove its existence. This is the main thing that needs to be done in order to spread awareness about our condition.

NJ! I'm going to post about PSSD in 'korean reddit/4chan'
Need preparation btw.. need an artwork in korean and a sparkling idea
Post needs some thumbs-ups to get a lot of attention..
When thumbs-up number reaches 33, it will be moved to the 'best daily board'
If I post about boring shit, it goes down the toilet
So I must make it fun and readable.. but one thing is sure.. once I manage to get there, there'll be a few thousands of views
Making an artwork is not an easy job.. I'm going to ask Bigmum to give me that wooden guy picture without speech boxes so I can translate it into korean
I'm also going to add this link : http://pssdfoundation-kr.jimdo.com/
But this site is offline.. I hope it comes back online

We must fight against this people and fight to obtain their attention because between them there are physician and patients that are trying to understaind if the phenomena is real or not (ie we are only crazy psycotich depressed people).
The world out there is saying pssd doesn't exist, people prefer to be asexual instead depressed, sexual dysfunction is not so bad and in some case desiderable. People don't understaind what pssd is and they think that is something like erectyle dysfunction and not a lot more than this, we must explain them what pssd really is and why ssri should be withdrawn from the market, there are a lot of equally effective and safer alternatives.

Than go on Reddit, up vote pro pssd comments, down vote against pssd comments and leave your story in the comments!

That's why PSSD should be called Post-SSRI syndrome and not PSSD.
