Anything not listed in the above questions you’d like to share about your experience?

I was curing with St. John’s wort, but there was a mixture with another serotonergic, which caused me serotonergic syndrome, after that my pssd got much worse

Tell us your story, in your own words, about your usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.

I started taking paroxetine on medical advice, I felt good in the first two weeks. And after getting worse, losing: sexuality, motivation, intellectual capacity, emotions, I endured for one year using medication, it was the worst year of life, after stopping: very strong withdrawal symptoms, and the symptoms did not improve.
gradually improved slightly over 8 years, but still had bad pssd.
some medications that I tried, promoted partially cure for some time, but stopped working, like: pramipexole, St. John’s wort, was curing me, but mixed with drugs, I had serotonergic syndrome, during the syndrome my libido was very high, after libido got worse, the whole pssd got worse and hasn’t improved since then.
10 years ago, pssd destroyed my life, I tried: parnate, I improved a lot then it lost effect, testosterone improved for 2 weeks after it lost effect. intending to create a pssd foundation in my country, and to raise funds for research, it will take a few years yet, i need to finish my college before, but i will try because i think it is the best i can do.
