Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD)
- Post-Finasteride Syndrome (PFS)
- Post-Retinoid Sexual Dysfunction (PRSD)
Finasteride is used in younger men for the treatment of male-pattern baldness. Isotretinoin is a retinoid used in the treatment of acne.
These conditions lead to suicide, relationship and family break-up, job loss and lead to a lot of wasted money taking risks on dangerous options held out as cures. At present there is almost no support for those affected.
The problems affect both men and women and cause genital numbness, pleasureless or weak orgasm, impotence, loss of sex drive and other difficulties. They can start after only a few days exposure to these medications and in some cases persist for decades.
We want to change this.
On September 12, 2017, RxISK launched a campaign to raise $100,000 for a Prize which will be offered to anyone who finds a cure for PSSD, PFS or PRSD. This could be a doctor, a scientist, a drug company, a member of the public – anyone.
If you would like to support this cause you can contribute by helping get the word out to friends, family, co-workers and doctors or make a donation via RxISK.org.
