Hi, I know this won't go down well, but I am not saying we have something similar, I am also not saying that pssd is caused by the same thing, I think ssris definitely caused depletion/disruption of something that ruined our sex drives.

My point is that the negative symptoms of schizophrenia can be similar to some described in pssd and new treatments to target these symptoms may give some kind of benefit that's

Sorry I keep mentioning these new drugs, but I need hope as 8 years like this has been a long time and the prospect of many more is quite depressing.

Also some people find benefit using high dose glycine.

I've gotten benefits from Sarcosine...I've always said there is something to the Glutamate picture. Hard to put my finger on it though because some glutamatergic agents help and others make it worse.

I found an article about people with schizophrenia apparently there are two groups of people, people with flat affect and people without it. That raises some questions like:

Did the group of people with flat affect have a history with SSRIs what about those without flat affect?

Did the group of people with flat affect also experience sexual dysfunction what about those without flat effect?

Could flat effect be iatrogenic in nature and misdiagnosed as being part of schizophrenia?

It may be very possible seeing as how some people with schizophrenia don't have flat affect also with tardive dyskinesia often being misdiagnosed as a mental disorder rather than a neurological one caused by the use of an antipsychotic futher cements this theory.

You don't have to be on an SSRI for that long to experience emotional blunting I was on Zoloft for 6 days over 7 months ago and still have it. I am convinced that if I have an fMRI done on me my brain would show very similar results as the people with flat effect. PSSD is way too underrecognized, studies like these might be the key to what's actually going on with us.

People with other mental disorders that have been shown to have reduced affect display include people with autism, depression, PTSD, and depersonalization disorder, all these groups of people have a high likelihood of being on an SSRI. I'm feeling that misdiagnosis in the mental health industy is rampant.

I also think that sarcosine can help.
Recently, I did a lot of research on sarcosine. According to the people who tried, it could help (better if stack with NAC). It also seems to help some for anhedonia and depression too. I just ordered it to try.
