    I believe that the absorption rate of patches is incredibly low. when intramuscular injection yields the most absorption and best results.

    I inject 200 mg a week of testosterone cyp. and take aromasin to manage E2

    Chiropractors don't prescribe medications.

    Don’t do it. Especially Lexopro and Zoloft.

    Endocrinology is a specialty of medicine, not chiropractics. Testosterone is available legally only by prescription. Chiropractors don't write prescriptions.

    Link his website.

    I'm on a high amount. My advice is unless you are outright suicidal ( and I mean to the point you're about to kill yourself or have tried already), it is perhaps worth it trying to avoid them.

    For me, the single worse part about these stupid fucking likes is the MASSIVE weight gain. I am likewise certain it has come.eoetely changed my metabolism and made it harder to lose weight. Before I was on them I was in good shape...very good. Gained a crapton of weight k. The. And working out balls to the wall + eating g healthy the weight loss is pathetically y slow compared to what it should be. Its to the point my cardio is higher than so.e skinny as people, but I'm still overweight. Lol.

    Other than that, if you don't take so.e medication to counter act the lack of sexual desire, ya dick won't work and you won't be horny. Its why I started taking another look. Never got to the point my just k stopped working, but I was getting that sense. My cock just wasn't as rock hard as usual.

    So, yeah. Avoid if you can help it. Also, it doesn't make you happy. It just prevents suicide and the more dark and negative thoughts. I feel mostly blah, and all the old dreams I had are dead.

    Ps: it's impossible to stop these things cold turkey. If I go 48 hrs without taking, I having the worst headache, nausea, dizyness, and general feeling g of shit. Not even counting my mind goes back to extreme depression...

    Not gonna take mine tonight. In for a weekend of hell. Lol. BUT, I wanna get rock hard so bad.
    How did you end up quitting? My doctor won't lower my dosage at all, and anytime I try to tamper even a little feel so terribly sick and shitty I cave in and take them again. Literally after 30 seconds of swallowing the pills, I don't feel violently sick.
    I'm taking da effexor/lexpro very high dosage.

    I call them the Suicide drug, these shits are temporary, if you go off they can make you fall even worse, also makes you feel weird like your mind isnt all their if you take too much you start slurring.

    Do you enjoy the things you used to enjoy? I love eating a tasty meal. Will that joy be stripped?

    I think they're okay for adults but not for kids and teens.

    I have been on Prozac. It didn't really make much difference.

    Lexapro made me feel like my muscles were being electrically shocked all day. Low/medium-low doses of Zoloft are good for stabilizing me, but too much (100mg for me) made me completely numb and unmotivated.

    I do enjoy me some ativan, though. I like benzos a lot better than anti-depressants

    I'm on them right now. A year ago my doctor started me off, trying different ones trying to find the right one. The first one I tried made me sleep like 24/7. I just couldn't stay awake. I even fell asleep just waiting in the waiting room. It's like I couldn't go ten minutes without a nap. Then I was on one that made me restless. I couldn't relax, I had to constantly be moving, and I'd go crazy if I couldn't (car rides). Then the next just didn't do shit all. I was still unstable, having crying fits and cutting daily, overdosing on meds, and getting upset at everything.

    Now I'm on venlafaxine and it's been great. Stable mood, no crying, no cutting, and no shitty side effects.

    Dude I had the exact same thing.. no matter what I am on.. literally could not jack to porn after a while.. when I did it would take like an hour and I would be sweating like crazy with my right arm in bits.. also boner would come and go

    Sex with GF sucked also.. but thank God I could keep hard but no fun when it takes 10-20 mins to finish after she has.. the actual cumming never felt that good either on anti depressants..

    Honestly for me at least.. a good diet.. workout.. lots of water.. decent sleep>> being on anti depressants

    One thing thats very scary with SSRIs that I was never made aware of by my doctor is something called "Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction". Its basically that the issues you can get from SSRIs never going away, even when stopping taking the drugs completely. There is also no known cure if this happens.

    https://rxisk.org/post-ssri-sexual-dysfunction-pssd/

    Edit: Like some other posters said: dont take anti-depressants unless you are in a really, really bad place. Always being numb both physically and mentally is very taxing and even though you might feel sad or down more without them, at least you can feel true happiness and joy once in a while.

    I've been in a good place for about a month or so now myself so I'm going to try to wean off them and see if I can do without. Ive also started to try dating again after 3 years so if I find a lady the genital numbness would be a pain in the ass.

    Edit 2. : What has helped me the most was getting someone to talk to. Ive never had anyone Ive trusted and allowed myself to be open with so going to a "third party" if you will, someone that doesnt know me and I dont have any social relationship with made it easier to open up.

    There is also quite a few supplements you can take that might help that arent drugs. Myself I'm taking magnessium (for sleep), zinc (for energy and my ulcerous colitis), vitamin B and D, and also a powerful anti-oxidant (new research has shown that anti-oxidants might alleviate depression). I've also started taking L-tryptophan (which converts into 5-htp which in turn converts into serotonin and melatonin) but I dont feel it has had any impact so I will try buying 5-htp next time. Some people experience more of an effect with that compared to L-tryptophan.
