Did you know about PSSD before quitting SSRIs?

Not at all, I discovered PSSD after quitting, while searching for my symptoms
A bit, I knew withdrawal could go wrong but not that much

PSSD knowledge

Unread post by Thomas »

I find it interesting to assess PSSD knowledge.
Please do not hesitate to post your comments.
Myself : I knew about withdrawal symptoms but thought they last only few weeks (which is usually the case).

No idea at all. I think it's important people add to this with when they took meds, given the labels (european) can now warn of sexual dysfunction after discontinuation.

Absolutely no clue. Was on them for a good year or 2 before I realised. Doctor said I had an enlarged prostate so I thought it was that causing the numbness, couldn’t think of anything else. Had no idea a tablet could cause this shit 😡 maybe I’d be less numb if I’d known back then what it was

I only knew about PSSD when I first tapered. Went from 30-45min (during 9 years) duration to literally 1-2min from a day to another. Checked the symptoms and saw PSSD. Increased my dose again to initial, duration was better bur far from what it was before (10min vs 30-45min). Kept the dose 2 years until tapering off during a 40 day juice fast and thought I would only get this symptom remaining and was ready to face it. But didn't expect anhedonia, blunted emotions, and the whole PSSD issues. NEVER.

I knew about it. But I didn’t get it the first time so I thought I am immune.
