Tell us your story, in your own words, about your usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.
It all started after taking only 11 pills of Trazodone in December 2017.
My symptoms are still today:
little to no existing libido (was previously very sexual)
Rarely morning erections
Pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis (radiates into testicles
- Penis Curve / Hard Flaccid (the penis feels hard and
like rubber, while at the same time it is totally loose at the
- Genital numbness (it is not completely numb but definitely a
loss of skin sensitivity)
- The scrotum is now hanging most of the time, the skin is
there sometimes shiny, wrinkled and thin (like parchment
paper) It looks like an inflammatory reaction.
Watery / less semen
I have NO problems with peeing and bowel movements!
no respond to alcohol and other things that gave me high libido/energy before (maca, green tea etc)
All previous doctors (neurologists and urologists) could not find anything.
It was undertaken:
MRI of head and lumbar spine
Ultrasound of bladder, testicles and prostate
Measurement of nerve conduction velocity
Big blood picture
Comprehensive hormone test
Prostate PSA test
Physiotherapy for the pelvic floor
My case is very similar to Zadig777 who was a member here and commited suicide.
I didn’t know how this could happend. I took 2 years SSRI and all was fine, and then just 11 pills fucked my life.
I am now finished with my Latin and have little hope for convalescence. What else can I do or let test?
