Successful usage of Flibanserin (Addyi) for men?

Unread post by mtkhalid »

To anyone (male) who has used Flibanserin (Addyi) successfully, what did you notice in your libido improvements?

Was it a modest improvement? A significant improvement in libido? A minor improvement? 10% of normal? 20% of normal? Etc.

I'm just wondering what I can expect as Dr. Goldstein (San Diego Sexual Medicine) has prescribed 100 mg of Flibanserin for me and my libido issues.

I'm suffering from enduring sexual dysfunction related to Abilify 15 mg; it's identical to PSSD symptoms, except it isn't caused by an SSRI.

On another note, if you've used flibanserin successfully, what are your experiences with working out (strength training) and libido, while being on flibanserin? Do you find that your libido increases after strength training, like it used to, prior to PSSD?

I don't know. but since you're looking for something potentially useful, I thought of this

"Post selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor syndrome (PSSRIS) is a seemingly rare condition where hypoanaesthesia of the genital area, loss of sexual desire and erectile dysfunction occur as soon as after the first dose of medication or more commonly within a course of the medication. The effects are permanent and are highly distressing to patients. It is to be differentiated from psychogenic sexual problems that can occur after SSRI withdrawal.

I personally warn every patient I put onto SSRIs or SNRIs that PSSRIS is a rare possibility.

In this case report, the patient with PSSRIS was put onto EDOVIS, which is a dietary supplement containing L-citrulline and other nutritional supplements. The patient improved over 3 months. Of course, he may have improved without EDOVIS but PSSRIS patients in my experience do not spontaneously do so.

One of my own patients obtained online bremelanotide. His PSSRIS improved after the first injection."

I asked this doctor if he had any other cases of improvement but I did not get an answer to this question.
bremelanotide is Vyleesi, a self-injecting drug to increase libido and arousal.

if you have any experiences please let us know.

Out of several people who tried Flibanserin already, I know 2 people who said that it improved all their sexual symptoms. taarn (one of them) said that it made him react to psychostimulants again. That aside, Bremelanotide is a lot more promising than Flibanserin on paper.
