I was on paroxetine and then fluvoxamine from when I was 22 until I was 24 I think.
I stopped because it wasn’t helping that much with my OCD, it was giving me nausea every time I took it and it was killing my dick.
I didn’t quit cold turkey, but I went from 150mg/day fluvoxamine to maybe 50mg/day, then every other day in just a few months. I had some electric shocks in my brain when I stopped completely, was vomiting a lot but I could take it so I just stopped completely one time. Not sure if this fucked my penis forever. I hope not.
I tested my total testosterone two times.
2016 and it was 306ng/dl.
In 2019, I tested some other stuff. and it was 222ng/dl.
Total Testosterone 222ng/dl - European reference values are now between 165 and 750, stupidity.
Prolactin 65.5ng/ml (prolactin was probably high due to having ejaculated due to semen examination needed aswell)
I was denied any help from a urologist and a GP due to my (extremely low) testosterone still being in the new 2018 updated range.
I’m now going to a private clinic to see if they can fucking help me. I’m getting depressed because my penis isn’t working just like before I started SSRI’s.
My question is will TRT actually be able to help me get back to where I was before SSRI’s? I’ve been reading a bit and there’s no consensus yet. I used to have really good erections, really good libido and now libido is gone and my erections are really soft. No morning wood in years aswell. And just recently my reaction time has gone downhill, I’m having brainfog (seems like I’m just a zombie walking around with no cohesive thoughts) and I’ve been feeling sadder.
Maybe on a good day with a good position my dick will be 70%-80% hard of what it was before.
Will I get better?
