Antidepressants
« on: June 11, 2018, 08:58:23 PM »

Just wondering if many of you are taking Antidepressants.

Have they helped ?
How long have you taken them for ?
What Antidepressant are you taking ?
Any Side Effects ?

I'm taking Venlafex XL 37.5 mg for 1 week now so kind of too soon too tell yet.

A few side effects like tiredness,anxiety etc but maybe that will pass.I'm not feeling too bad at the moment so thats something :)

I held off on trying Antidepressants for a long time.
But to be honest i was close to suicide a few times so i had to do something.

Thanks in advance for any replies

The fairly new AD called Trintellix is expensive but does NOT cause sexual effects at low doses. It comes in 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg.....
You start w 5 then work to 10........Going higher I wouldn't know about..........Good luck.......

Hi Ed,

Personnally I have been taking gotu kola for 2-3 months, which did seem to have a pretty good pro-focus and antidepressive/anxiolytic effect -yes, all this, but in a smooth way ! No side effects that I would have been noticing. I plan on going back to this plant in a few weeks!

Cymbalta and Wellbutrin have both been very helpful for me for several years for depression.  CBT therapy helped tremendously for anxiety as well.

Thanks for the replies !
I'm reading up on some of these

For the last year all i was thinking 24/7 was about my erectile dysfunction.
I have gone batsh1t crazy

But yesterday i actually for the first time in about 10 months laughed and had a good day
And forgot about erectile dysfunction

Over the last year i thought that would never be possible

It would be interesting to know what kinds of antidepressant drugs are of best use for people with peyronie's and ED (especially whose of these drugs interfere less or, if better, don't interfere at all with erectile function).

To be honest, I'm surprised by the fact that there are very few reports on this forum on this whole subject, considering how depressing the disease is and what's reported on scientific papers with regards to the psychological effect of this sh!^^y disease (I once read a paper where it was estimated that about 50% of people who receive a diagnosis of peyronie's disease seek professional help for clinical depression).

My Euro recommended Trintellix and I'm on it. !0mg. No sexual side effects........I believe one of the few that doesn't cause those side effects.......
Expensive though.........

The Zoloft has well known sexual side effects. Orgasm is almost impossible to reach. Wellbutrin is often prescribed with it because 1) it counteracts the sexual side effects of the Zoloft somewhat and 2) It effects a different part of the brain than the Zoloft. Add those to high blood pressure meds, beta blockers, Prilosec and mild pain meds and it’s very little wonder that I’m where I’m at...
