Welcome to near total commercialization of the internet, and good ...

Re: Bupropion-induced PSSD

I just argued recently on bupropion here : https://pssdforum.org/viewtopic.php?p=47601#p47601 From everything connected to PSSD it's evident that all psychoactive substances cause long lasting effects. Especially other antidepressants. Doesn't mean the biology is the same behind each drug induced co...

I cannot agree with Sylv in the statement that bupropion will not do anything for genital anesthesia. It is possible that it has a positive effect on genital anesthesia. There are several reports of people who had their only windows on bupropion including myself. There are also reports of people ge...

Re: Safe medicines for OCD?

Are you going to psychologist specialised in OCD? You can increase ERP therapy effeciency by psychedelics. But they have their own issues. Besides this I am not sure is there anything for OCD except SSRI
