I'm scared. I need an advice!

Hello guys. I am 22 years old and have used escitalopram for almost 3 months. The decrease in libido was so strong that it destroyed my relationship. I decided to stop and still did not get any more erections or sensitivity .. I started to say that I did not feel desire for my boyfriend and I ended up with him. I felt excited as I kissed him, but every time I was going to have sex with him I felt such anxiety and anguish that it would take my erections away.
I resumed taking escitalopram for a week recently, so I stopped again because the remedy was over. Now I am almost a week old with a much greater aggravation. I do not feel any penis senility, or desire to relate to other people. I had a very active sex life before the antidepressant. Now I see what I like to do being ruined. Reading reports from PSSD made me extremely distressed.
I do therapy with psychoanalysis, I talked to my therapist about it and he said that I was identifying with the symptoms of PSSD.
however I feel this to be real. And I would like you to help me with the best treatment according to your experiences. I know that each person reacts in a way to treatment. Reading the forum I saw some that are more accessible to me and I ask you to advise me on its effectiveness.

I thought of taking natural supplements first, such as: Peruvian Maca, Catuaba, Maruapana and ginko bibola. How do you guys think about these supplements?
Another alternative that I thought of is magic mushrooms. I took 2g yesterday and went through a very strong reframing process. however I woke up today with some erections with about 70% of power. But I still feel some genital anesthesia and lack of desire. I am thinking of investing in microdoses of Psilocybe cubensis to see the result.
I also thought about Piracetam + hill. However the high dosage that piracetam needs would make me have a high cost with that treatment. I do not have the money to invest in expensive treatments. And that is something relevant.

But I am willing to hear from you opinions!

Sorry to hear that you're struggling. You might find this useful as an introductory overview:

We've seen improvements with Psilocybin and Piracetam, check out:

A lot of the herbs have individual threads also, and we've seen improvements with some of them. It's up to you what you want to try first but everything you've mentioned seems sensible enough. Do ask if you have any further questions!

Welcome!

You're wise in your plan. Psychedelics have reframed my thinking and eased my suffering in all ways. I am having some initial microdosing success that I will be posting about soon. Usually 0.2-0.3 cubes, which does break the threshold in terms of feeling it but I don't have any visuals. Good luck with the psilocybin and keep us posted here and in the psilocybin thread.
