I'm on Venlafaxine.

I don't have a girlfriend so that's not the issue.

I can get hard, but I can't cum when I'm taking my antidepressant. The only thing I've found to be effective is not taking the medication, but that also produces rebound and discontinuation symptoms. Reducing doesn't help, as I've gone from 300 mg a do to 150 mg a day with no real change in symptoms.

Is there any supplement I can take to manage this without going off my meds and won't produce negative interactions? It is incredibly frustrating. It would be so bad if the drug killed my sex drive too, but I still have a sex drive with the inability to orgasm.

Tell your doctor that you have sexual dysfunction and ask for a prescription for ritalin. Often, low dose ritalin will be used for men and women who have sexual dysfunction as a result of venlafaxine. It is considered a serious side effect and so doctors will treat it very seriously if you bring it up.

I'm kind of wary of asking for scheduled substances for treatment for anything. They give me lorarzepam for anxiety which I have to be careful with because if I don't I get rebound panic attacks and I'm considering asking to be switched back to clonazepam because it didn't cause a rebound effect even though it caused sleep walking.

They know I have a history of problems with alcohol (DUI is the only thing on my record) and they know I used to use hallucinogens. Never smoked weed, but used to used DXM, DPH, salvia, morning glory, and hawaiian baby wood rose. I don't do hallucinogens anymore because they could interact with my medications and cause serotonin syndrome. I still occasionally drink though.

My psychiatrists test my urine. They want me to do it every time I come in, but I told them the best I could do was every other visit or once every two months. They said they do that for everyone, but I'm not being charged a forty dollar "We don't trust you" fee every month on top of the thirty dollar copay for appointments. I don't trust my doctors. I know they intentionally don't give me refills on my prescriptions to force me to schedule appointments to get new prescriptions so I'll spend extra money.

The therapist I talk to (not the prescribing doctor) is basically useless as her typical response when I ask her for advice is to reflect the question and ask "How does that make you feel?" rather than give anything useful. I don't feel I can even discuss with her openly and frankly the fact that the only time I've ever felt anything that could be call a religious experience was on psychadelics and I feel my father mocks me when he talks about kind of thing in his own religion. Debating whether or not I should tell her about my suicide plan I have prepared and ready to go. "A prison becomes a home if you have the key."

I haven't been feeling great the past few days, doubled my topiramate recently under doctor's orders. My mood's low and I don't want to eat. I sometimes feel they don't know what they're doing because it feels like nothing works, not really. The drugs can help the symptom…

Professionally I wouldn't ever tell someone to stop their medication. However I will be frank: SSRI's and SNRI's are a miracle drug. But only to the companies who produce them. They're unabusable so they know doctors will prescribe them like candy whenever someone comes in saying they're sad. They are also used to help "quit" smoking, "treating" ADHD, and even used for vaginal dysphoria. It is so easy to prescribe these as a doctor because patients will notice some changes but as a doctor you can always say "it just needs more time" when in reality its completely destroying how your body uses serotonin. But we are pressured to prescribe medication. A colleague of mine was fired simply for not doing so. Most are so worried about drug abuse they don't give patients what could potentially change their lives. I have a painting in my office that I cherish from a patient who I got by taking a former colleagues work load and she was on high dosages of Effexor, Lamictal, and Buspar. I first saw her and it was almost as there was a gloss over her eyes, she couldn't sit still, and she could barely focus. In her file it stated "bipolar 2. Drug seeking" she clearly needed a benzodiazepine. I started a taper off Effexor. Prescribed Gabapentin for mood and to help her withdrawals. And a 7 day supply of lorazepam. We got her started on therapy and within 2 months she was off effexor, on lamictal, gabapentin and diazepam. Her change was night and day. So was her painting(it is of a moon and a sun holding hands) very talented. Very well done. So my message is if your psychiatrist doesn't listen to you and your sessions are 15 minutes or less with him writing you prescriptions and that's all.. Look elsewhere

Problem is I can't look elsewhere. I'm stuck with the cheap option because it's what I can afford.

Honestly I'm kind of tolerating this crap in hopes my SSI will go through in the hearing stage. Been involuntarily committed twice so I think I have a good chance and I've got a lawyer, but I'm probably going to commit suicide if it doesn't work because the other option is several decades of mindless blue collar mind numbing drudgery that will make me want to kill myself. Sometimes I genuinely think this is some form of hell and I'm being punished for something I can't remember doing.

And by the way, I fully plan to taper off my meds completely eventually. A symptom I hate is they make me feel depersonalized. I don't feel like myself. When I go off my meds I don't feel like myself because I realize I'm just going through withdrawals. I fear that I'm forgetting what it's like to be at baseline without the medication.

So my two lower central teeth were loose as fuck and one just fell out, the other one any time now. I've tried googling it phrased in different ways but all I get back are answers for broken/knocked-out/baby teeth and I can't figure out what to do for self-treating, like is it absolutely imperative to seal it up or will it close up on its own? What are home treatments are there for what is now where the tooth used to be? What did our ancestors do about this? It's not bleeding or anything, not really any noticable sensation either besides feeling my tongue in where the tooth used to be. I did glean something about saltwater gargling so I am gonna start doing that as a routine, but what else should I do or know? Also, how long​ do I have before that weird jaw shrinking thing I read about once before starts to happen? Would me being a bit of a jawclencher happen to help with slowing that down?

Woke up in a wet bed today. GF took it considerably relaxed.

Embarrassed as fuck!

I know things like this can happen when there is a lot of stress in life.
But there is nothing major going on right now.
Feel pretty relaxed the whole time.

Do I need to look for a doc?

Is there any way to know this will happen again?

I've been trying to cut back on masturbating so that I can have a better erection. I think I might have fucked something up though, because I'm getting a definite pain in my groin, and I'm pretty sure it's my prostate, but I'm not sure. It also feels like it could actually be the shaft at the base where it becomes internal, I might have just worked the angle a little to much. Or maybe I'm staying erect too long? sometimes I go for 30 minutes

I think it's the prostate too because I definitely get a few hours of relief after I cum. Right now it's been about 6 hours since I jerked off and I only feel a dull ache.

What I'm really worried about though is that it's something crazy, like early onset testicle cancer (I'm 30), or something else that would require invasive procedures more intense than a simple check up by my doctor

This is about day 2 of noticeable pain, how long should I wait to see if this goes away before I need to start to worry it's more than just pain from not emptying the prostate as often?

Hey medfags, does anyone here know the molecular explanation behind brain fatigue? I mean like directed attention fatigue/decision fatigue/ any other fatigue where a certain class of brain cell can't do it's job anymore and 'tires out'. I think that shit is really interesting, and I wanna know how it works. I know how muscle cell fatigue works. Like running, for example, creates a bunch of microtears and limit function and which the repair of strengthens tissue. Is there something similar in the brain? If not, then what causes brain areas to 'tire out' and stop working, like when you read the same word a bunch of times and it starts to look like it's spelled wrong.

I'm seconding the LITHIUM and SEROQUEL as something worth looking into (or stopping). I've taken Wellbturin on and off for years, if anything it is good for increasing my attention and energy level.

I'm also a person who has struggled with drug abuse, depression, inability to find pleasure in life in general, and major problems paying attention to my own passions and past times.

I don't know if I feel my problems are biological or social, or both, but I accept that it is a part of who I am. That I probably have to work harder than most people just to sit still and try to enjoy something as simple as coloring a picture or engaging in a hobby.

I personally am looking into mindfulness as a way of living. Not a gimmick, but rewiring how we have taught ourselves (and BEEN taught) to pay attention. Racing thoughts, rumination, uncomfortable intrusive thoughts, emotional problems... you name it. It's a life time's worth of bad habits piling on top of bad habits. And I'm not ignoring the biological stuff, I do believe some people are born more vulnerable to attention and emotional problems, but we also learn and reinforce so many bad things in our behavior and thoughts.

I was prescribed Seroquel and a few other medications for bipolar disorder (a diagnosis I've been given since childhood). Um, I really think most doctors mean well, but yours sounds like he is prescribing you the safest thing he feels comfortable with to address your symptoms in hopes of you benefiting.

we have a hard road, and I do wish you luck in finding whatever mindful niche you can in order to get a hold on your thoughts and be conscious so you can begin to change yourself. also, have fun and be safe with the drugs.

love MJ

Exactly. We're born with a set of genes, but how those genes get expressed can be changed suprisingly quickly. Look into Richard J. Davidson's work on meditation epigenetics.

Hey OP,

Another engineer here with a fairly large/long drug history (all your psys plus a descent into pure IV hedonism for a few years...)

Anyway, my attention span has always been shit, and the drugs didn't exactly help. But the longer I've stayed away from the psys and the HPPD/general schizo stuff they tend to induce for me, the easier it's gotten for my subconscious/innate abilities to compensate for my extreme lack of focus (like it had done for most of my life).

That said: I second what a previous poster said, about Welbutrin - for about 1/3 people, it seems to be an excellent AD/pseudo-stim and has helped me immensely. Zoloft also helped, to a lesser extent, but I think my problem and benefit from that was much more depression-related than purely a focus issue.

What are you taking the seroquel for? Don't take seroquel if you can, man. It doesn't necessarily ruin my focus so much as just.. make me dull - it turns off the inner monologue that so much of my thought process derives from and makes my mind 'too quiet.'

Maybe that sounds crazy; I'm not sure. But I'd still take a bit crazy and sharp over dull and 'sane' and implore you to do the same.

Why would you be waiting for blisters?

I would google around for alternative/herblore remedies for [your specific problem]. Most of the time /med/ shoots down such recommendations, but there's some bona fide natural cures sitting in most people's cupboards or at the supermarket, if they just understand how to use them.

Pour some Stregga on your feet.

You have foot fungus most likely. If that's the case, you're making it worse, lol. So, essentially the answer is to season your feet like spaghetti. Put lots of thyme and sage and such (cloves work too) in that hot water for your foot soak, or better yet, cook it into a bit of oil like when making cannabutter, (could even toss in some weed for your feet) and then use that as a lotion once it cools.

And change your insouls in your shoes immediately and let them completely dry.

Hello/med/, which i assume is populated by the worlds foremost and knowledgable doctors in this exact field, happy to share their extensive knowledge.
Now, Imagine living a life where no matter how much you work out, you will always look scrawny. Imagine being in your late 20s and in great shape but a 17 year old that has never worked out and weighs 150lb wet stands next to you and looks vastly more imposing. The only way anyone would ever know how hard you work out is when you dont have a shirt on. And even then, not looking really proportionately right. This is my life. I have narrow shoulders. Nothing i do helps. Wear a loose shirt, you look fat. Tight, you look scrawny. "Go shirtless or wear wifebeaters/muscle shirts" you look like a douche. I have an enormous head(which is bald and, for whatever fucking reason, seems like the only place i store fat. I have a fat head), which is also bald giving the illusion of it being even bigger. I have bad posture, which seems to be common in tall people, and that doesnt help either.
I dont need too much wider. Literally centimeters would help.
>tldr
Widening shoulders surgically. Is it possible? Is it expensive? How could it be done?

So it's Monday morning right now, and I've had a pretty sore throat since Thursday morning. I also threw up that morning, but just that time. My lymph nodes on my neck are swollen, but I'm not showing any other symptoms. Could it be that I do have a cold/flu of some kind but I only have these symptoms? Mono? Something more serious? Fill me in, if you can.

Oh, and yeah, I'm pretty sure I don't have tonsilitis and my tonsils feel ok, but looking at the roof my mouth towards where my throat ends and the roof begins, it looks kinda discolored. The severity of my sore throat isn't too bad, but it's fairly uncomfortable and hard to ignore the pain. It hasn't changed much since Thursday.

this is the trifecta treatment of "i feel kinda sick" which is unparalleled. if this does not work, consider seeking treatment. it's only been 3 days so yes you could have a mild viral infection, so far symptoms sound pretty tame to me. if you smoke maybe take a break for a day or 2

If you want it fixed, go dentist. You might think you've got it lined up perfectly, but if you fuck it up and it need to be corrected in the future there's always the chance a home job could do somethign unforseen. Like what if you accidentally glue some kind of plaque under the crown and end up creating a cavity that they can't readily access without first burning all the glue off?
That's just one possible way it could go wrong

That being said, that's the responsible solution for an ideal world. If you're in desperate financial straights and literally can't go dentist, maybe you can do it yourself and just roll the dice, stick it out as long as you can bear it. But it's your call.

>contrast treatment
indicated for: fluid retention, joint injury (your ankle), bruising

apply hot and cold alternating to the site of the injury, 15 mins hot 15 mins cold, repeating at least 3 times (the more the better, i would personally do like 10 cycles). when you sprain a joint you pull/compress and slightly tear/crush the ligaments and possibly cartilage in the joint. these tissues are avascular and do not have a direct supply of blood or lymph to facilitate the healing process. however, interstitial fluid can be transported to more vascular tissue through this contrast treatment, as heat causes vasodilation and cold causes vasoconstriction, generating a pumping action of the blood and lymph vessels in the area

things for hot: electric heating pad, hot water bottle (my favorite), heating stones in hot water, thermacare heat patches, rice/bean/whatever pouches that you microwave

things for cold: cold pack kept in the freezer, ziploc bag of ice with paper towel around it to catch condensation and minimize the intensity of the cold, or something like a frozen bag of vegetables if you don't have ice

>stretching
stretch muscles of leg: quads, adductors, hams, calf, tib. ant.

>ROM
move the ankle joint cautiously, stopping if there is pain, but on a daily and regular basis until free full movement is achieved
