Re: Is recovery from pssd a function of age..?

Marcka: My understanding, recently confirmed by my physician (who is good and open-minded and i trust) is that T-levels do vary and "low" is not that big a deal usually, but if they're really very...

Re: Is recovery from pssd a function of age..?

Just to toss in another optimistic example: I'm fifty and saw little change in PSSD for about seven months and then in the eight month--actually in just a week or so--things improved markedly. I...

Re: is Tramadol an SSRI

Yes, it's highly addictive if you take it continually. I have taken it occasionally (just now and then, maybe at most one or two pills a day a couple of times a week) for neck pain and never had...

Re: 26 years old male scared of having pssd

Others here will be more knowledgeable about the cold turkey thing, but my tentative read on this would be that if you were only on for five weeks and you've been off for six or so without any...

Re: Is recovery from pssd a function of age..?

Hello Marcka,

Okay, first: I am fifty, have been "clean" for eight months now. I have clearly had PSSD...not as bad as some, but definitely there, and until recently I was growing concerned that...

Re: Shocked by claire weekes

Sounds great. I've been reading Cheri Huber's "The Depression Book, which takes a Zen approach. I think there may be some similarities. Huber could be a bit off-putting for some with intense...

Re: is it true that most ppl lose the weight

Isa, It sounds like you haven't been off all that long so I would give it some time, and see if you can increase from the light work-out to something more. Although 1400 calories is not much! In my...

Re: Paxil withdrawal Orgasms Opposite effect

Hi Julie: I got off zoloft for multiple reasons. I had weight gain, about thirty pounds at the maximum, and even a fair amount of exercize and healthy, fairly low-calory diet couldn't get it down...

Re: PSSD Update (Windows)

Re: Paxil withdrawal Orgasms Opposite effect

Julie, I had a bit of a similar effect, though not quite the same. I had no problems on zoloft for five or six years, then did. Finally got off another ten (yikes) years later, late last fall. It...

Re: PSSD Update (Windows)

AKR,

Sorry to hear about your situation. I tried a dopamine agonist while on zoloft and it did not help. I believe some people do find it helpful, though--although I would be a little wary of how...

Re: Lagging libido: PSSD vs. age?

Well as long as this thread has popped up again...an encouraging update that may be of interest. The PSSD actually got worse the past month or two and I was starting to think either the drug effects...

Hitting the wall at 5-6 months?

I wonder if others may have had very gradual onset of depression after withdrawal and would love to hear from any who have.

I did really well after my last dose of zoloft (fourth withdrawal try...

Sharon,

I can't add too much to the above in terms of personal stories, but two more general things may be of interest.

Robert Whittaker, a journalist you may well have come across, has a good...

Re: Does everyone on these meds eventually get screwed?

People seem to react very differently to these things. I think some people can do pretty well on them for a good long time, perhaps permanently. I don't recommend it, I agree that often they...

Re: Therapy while in w/d

On affordability, there's a lot of work being done on computer-assisted CBT, which would make it much more accessible. The little bit I've seen about it suggests it's as or more effective as the...

Re: Does anyone feel like they missed a huge chunk of their life?

This is the saddest but also in a way most reassuring thread I've come across here. The loss of time is just devastating, but then there is something helpful in knowing one is not alone.

Re: Therapy while in w/d

I have found therapy--not CBT, but talk therapy--to be hugely helpful during withdrawal. Along with some unorthodox supplements I took, I'm fairly sure I wouldn't have made it without a very good,...
