Hey guys! Brunyan here from the old PP forums. I haven't written in any SSRI or related forum in almost 2 years now. The reason being? Things for the most part have been pretty damn great. My actual life is great. I have a great career started. I am finally independent and financially stable. I've had a couple of short relationships in between now and when Paxil Progress ended. During that sexual relationship I almost NEVER had one problem. Not only that, things were pretty freaking great in that department. I never had any problems getting it up, and sex was frequent and very good.

 

Now there is still some of the genital numbness, and spotty libido, but was scarcely a worry.

 

So. fast forward. We broke up. Not the right time in our lives, etc etc blah blah.

 

 

Now the libido and functioning goes right back down to nothing good. This has been the pattern in the post SSRI/PSSD world for almost 5-6 years now. In the relationship things work great. Outside of that relationship, even when by myself things just dont feel very good.

 

I realize how lucky I am. I'm grateful to have what I have. I'm so lucky. I'm not even really complaining. I just kind of needed to vent because its kind of scary. And in the past the one habit I've made is obsessively trying to hook up with girls or look at porn to keep testing if things are working. And I want to be a lone for a while and do some more soul searching. 

 

The last girl i was with I was very upfront about the PSSD stuff, and we took our time to get to sex and that made all the difference. I cannot discount the emotional and psychological part of it. It's almost as if the PSSD has made those components so strong that I am now 'demi-sexual". 

 

If you look that up it basically means you can't be aroused without an emotional connection..

 

I've got a lot of work to do in therapy to deal with this. I need to listen to my rational mind and not the fearful part. I can do this.

 

I'm of course open to any and all questions as I know that my story has been used as a success story for many people fearful of PSSD around the internet.

Good to hear from you again and good to hear how well you're doing.

 

How did you go off your drugs? When did PSSD start? Did you have any other withdrawal symptoms?

 

How bad was your PSSD? What were the stages of your recovery?

Sure happy to let you all in on what I've been through.

 

I stopped CT Lexparo in 2011. You can see my signature. I checked myself into a hospital because I had total genital anesthesia, total loss of libido. Total loss of feelings. It was horrible. I wanted to die. 

 

 

Thus began the beginning of the windows and waves which, in a certain context, continue to this day.

 

In late 2011 I began a relationship with a young lady that culminated in, at times, feeling like i was %100 healed. Everything came back full force at times. But then it would go bad for months. And then good. And then bad.

Things went south with her. I started dating another girl. Things were ok with her at first but eventually bloomed to that %100 feeling again. Still windows. On. Off. On Off.  Oscillating between feeling fully connected again an totally numb.

 

Than after 2 years with her, we broke up. 6 months later I began dating my most current ex girlfriend. We waited a few dates for sex and I am glad we did. With the exception of one or two times we never had a problem sexually. It was a very positive and healthy sexual relationship. 

Now I am single again, by choice. But back comes the PSSD. Feeling very sexually disconnected. 

 

So now it seems to me that the PSSD re-wires itself in the right company, but outside of that is persistent. Very strange, but now that I know the pattern its easier to not freakout and feel 'broken' because I know I am not.

Hi brunyan,

Thanks for sharing. I was one of those who hanged on to your story on Paxil Progress to give me hope. I relate a lot to what you say. During my first year of PSSD I had occasional ED but the worst of all was the numbness. I was never close to 100% as you describe as I was always aware the feelings I had during sex weren't the same as before. We eventually got into a bit of a dead bedroom situation maybe pssd contributed maybe it didn't, who knows?
After that the partners I had were casual dates and it went terribly, I have severe ED now even when I masturbate. So I'm wondering if the drugs made me demi-sexual too :D

I am worried now as 3 years later I have something I don't remember having in that first year, which is soft-glans and an extremely pale underside of my glans. I have no idea why things are getting worse at 3 years off.

 


September 2011 - 75 mg Effexor, 15 mg Mirtazapine
September 2012 - CT. Developed PSSD (mostly erectile dysfunction and diminished enjoyment of sex).
January 2016 - Symptoms persist, no improvements. In fact, things seem worse now than they were in the first year.

To your point.

 

I've never had a casual encounter go well post PSSD. Only after getting to know a girl can I have good sexual function. Independent of that its basically a dead circuit. I've just been up front and honest with all the ladies and none of them have had a problem with it.

Yes. Very bad.

1st year was total anhedonia. I felt like my brain was fried. It was awful. I couldn't feel happy or sad or anything. I had very bad sensitivities to caffeine and sugar. I couldn't sleep. I felt disconnected from my body.

Between 1 year and 2 1/2 years I saw the most improvement.

Yes. In periods where I am not with a girlfriend or a consistent sexual relationship it reverts back to a state of feeling very cold and numb and exhibits the symptom you are talking about. However once reconnected with a girl on a consistent basis, that goes away.

Brunyan, 

 

Glad to see you logged back onto the forums.  I followed your story at the other place for awhile and always wondered how you were doing.

I am happy to hear you are doing well in your career and seem to have stabilized.  

 

My story is very similar to yours.  CT Celexa in 2014 after several years and got the PSSD, emotional numbness, brain fog, you name it.

Seems you are on a good journey of recovery and relearning what we lost.


Mid 2006-Early 2013  Celexa 40 MG, Xanax .50, Trazadone 50 MG - No problems with side effects

Very fast-few weeks taper in Early 2013 off all medication.

Crashed summer 2013 Went back on all meds same dosage (different brand of Celexa) Sept 2013. 

 

Sexual Side Effects (which I never had before) begun December 2013.  Off Celexa February 2014.  Xanax remained while Trazadone done in August 2014.

Continue to experience complete PSSD to this day with sadly no signs of improvement yet.

Good to hear from you Blue Leader! Thanks for the kind words. Yes things have stabilized.

 

 

Even now I'm back in the swing of things with a new young lady. I stopped looking at porn again. Last streak I had was 9 months. I'm at a month now. Doing well. 

 

My brain is rewiring itself to a new partner and it feels amazing again. Again its persistent, but I'm happy for what I have

And then just like that we've had so much sex that my sex drive is back down again and things are numb.

 

 

At this point this pattern has occur for almost 5 years now. Pretty consistent. Who knows if it will ever change permanently, but I'm happy for what I have.

That is very interesting Branyan, I too have periods or windows where I feel almost like oh 35% whole again-little glimmers and then times where it feels nothing works at all.    But, like you, I am at least thankful for what I have.

Hey Brunyan, I just wanted to say thanks for coming on here and posting an update. I followed your story quite close in the early period of my withdrawal and I always wondered how you were doing.


December 2010: 10mg Citalopram

April 2011: 5mg for 2 weeks then cold turkey withdrawal - Extremely bad depression / no emotions

June 2011: Reinstated 10mg - After 3 weeks started getting impulsive suicidal thoughts

July 2011: Cold turkey - Withdrawal hell begins...

Of course man. I still don't have it figured out. There are no rhyme or reason to my windows and waves, but that is what it is what it is. You know?

 

 

How are things with you good buddy?

Branyan ,youve been on some similar meds to me ,I had blunted sexual dysfunction ,especially while on Zoloft .All I can say to you is it goes away for good but takes time

hang in there buddy


2012 put on Citalopram and diazepam for 3 months for "depression" after filling in a 3 minute form at the doctors, had a massive reaction with panic attacks and extreme anxiety,never suffered panic attacks or anxiety before citalopram.Told to quit cold turkey which led to two hospital admissions during 2012/2013

December for 6 months Seroquel dosage adjusted up and down 50mg ,150mg ,100mg, caused severe tinnitus ,told to quit cold turkey

2013 January for 12 months Lorazapam given to me like sweets,told to quit cold turkey

2013 May Zoloft for 6 months ,told to quit cold turkey, reinstated 50mg tapered 2nd time over a month (to fast but I survived)messed up my sleep

Zyprexa April 2103 5mg until august 2014 ,dropped by doctor down to 2.5mg for one month went well but sleep was very poor for 3 weeks

End of 2015 I had to reinstate back up to 5mg due to constant insomnia that wouldnt go away Started a slow taper and found an understanding doctor who listened to me while I reduced
May 2016 drug free, sleeping and doing well in life again, it can be done http://survivinganti...ly-off-zyprexa/

Hey Braynon it sounds like you are on the right road to a full recovery. Although I could imagine being single this issue would be even more of an annoyance. Question has all your other symptoms completely disappeared or almost disappeared? Also I wish luck and I thought this will all clear up for you
Was on 30mg (Lexapro) for 7-8yrs20mg for 3 months (This was my choice my Doc wanted me to drop much faster)15 mg 2week10mg 2 weeks 5 mg 1 week0 since August 24th Clonazapam. Currently 0.10mg daily. PPI Dexlant 20-30mg for last 29 months currently at 30mg

Reporting for my own sanity to come back and look at  :P

 

 

Just had about a month and a half of borderline totally normal sexual function and activity. Things were going great! Then back down into a bad window. Numbness etc. So the process continues. Year 6 now.

Tapered 150-0mgs in 3 months.

Tapered Quetiapine,Xanax in the last 18 months.NO med of any kind anymore.
First 3 months off acute w/d
Protracted w/d ever since.
Symptoms:Anxiety,anhedonia,insomnia,tinnitus,PSSD

04/13/2014 Awful Relapse.Recovered fairly fast.

3 years and 4 months off.

Things are going great right now. Been having some of the most normal function in a long time.

 

 

As per the questions bout changes in patterns. Those patterns didn't really change anymore until after the first year or so. I am 6 years + out now.

Things were really great for 4-5 months or so, and now they are kinda numb like in the beginning of the relationship. Things are great in the relationship and when they are numb we have found ways around just PIV sex, and had good sex anyway. It's interesting though because usually 1 year is where (in the previous relationship) the PSSD would start to rear its head more. But I haven't gotten much past that 1st year, so we will see.
