any positive results with anti depressants

Postby regguy1967 » Sun Mar 05, 2017 9:40 pm

Hi Guys,
I hope to get some feed back here. I am being treated for low-T with mixed results I suffer from some mild to moderate depression as a result. My Dr. has been suggesting I try a mild anti depressant ( one with no or very low incidents of sexual side affects). I was wondering if any of you every had any positive results from an anti depressant relating to E.D. Dr thinks maybe a boost in mood would help E.D. meds work better.
Thanks.
Bill.

Some say that Wellbutrin helps increase your libido. I have not found that to be true, but it doesn't shut you down sexually like the SSRI antidepressants tend to do. Abilify really makes a huge difference in my depression and it doesn't have negative sexual side effects. I can go from crying to being able to laugh again in a week on Abilify.

Anti-depressants have the opposite effect on me. I get suicidal. Be careful and follow doctors orders.

Make sure to find out from a psychiatrist if you are low in dopamine or serotonin, you feel differently when deficient in one not the other.

The drugs they give you work on one or the other. If you're low in one and they give you the other it can make you feel worse. Quite often Doctor's will most of the time prescribe a SSRI without much thought (for serotonin), when sometimes the patient might need a NDRI or SNRI.
