It might be worth going into more detail here. You aren’t explaining much about what happened to you.

I don’t want to bored you whit the typical pfs crash whit all the symptoms.

Really, it would be great if you could share details. Everyone is a little different and it’s nice to know how long it has been since you crashed and/or took your last dose of an SSRI and how long you have been having success with TRT.

It’s interesting that your T is low normal. Mine was after Escitalopram discontinuation, and it only took 5 days for my functioning to be all out of whack. I’ve been on Buspirone, Vortioxetine, Bupropion, and now Desvenlafaxine without any issues at all. (No damper to the partial recovery I’ve gotten with time). I don’t know how much I buy the theory of 5HT1A desensitization or SERT downregulation anymore. It just doesn’t seem right to me. I think we have a lot more overlap with what is going on with all of these Propecia and Accutane fellas, and we need to band together to figure out what the fuck is going on. I hope you’re doing ok. Stay hopeful and don’t let anything consume you in the long run, as state of mind contributes to well being too. God bless.
