    Fluoxetine for Burnout syndrome; Depression

    Fluoxetine has been shown to have an excellent effect when taken with 2 tablets of 20 mg. I was really fine with that. Unfortunately, significant erectile dysfunction and almost complete loss of libido occurred at the same time. 1 tablet was unfortunately too weak but also brought no / hardly any side effects. Positive aspect: weight loss. Cymbalta has a good effect with fewer side effects. Normal libido, only even easier erectile dysfunction. Especially if I forgot the tablets again 3 or 4 days and imagine I do not need them … and start again. During this time from the 3rd day heavy perspiration, slowed thought processes, nausea and strong irritability. With regular intake: o.k., but relatively strong weight gain.

    Fluoxetine for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    First of all, I do not want to stop anyone here from taking his prescribed medications or even getting someone to stop his drug therapy. However, it is important to me to mention a major scandal. I myself have had the fluoxetine bother me because of obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders. It was really imposed on me. With the most flowery reports a la success rate of at least 40% and hardly any side effects. Yes, I have been warned about side effects (NW). Also on sexual dysfunction. My question as to whether these NWs are reversible was answered unambiguously and unequivocally yes. Now I am sitting there, have discontinued the drug for 14 days and it is still completely dead pants. Libido and erection = 0. My therapist calms me down with the long half-life and that’s why it can take a while for the male force to return. However, I have now found out that there are enough people whose sexual dysfunction persisted after taking SSRIs (keyword for research: PSSD, there are also self-help groups). The phenomenon has long been ignored by experts or psychologically canceled. Meanwhile, there is also peer-reviewed scientific literature on this topic. I hope now that I am really too impatient and soon the problem has resolved itself. With psychotropic drugs, I am personally, however, through. For me, the ups and downs of the mental illness + fulfilled sex life was much better than the current state. Again, no one should sell his meds because of this report. They work too. Fluoxetine helped me noticeably to reduce anxiety after 2 days. Of course, seriously depressed people or people who can not lead a livable life without psychotropic drugs should have access to these substances. However, everyone should be aware that they can cause permanent damage. Even if neither the doctor nor the leaflet tell you. All the best.
