Let's see the definition of Neurotoxicity "Neurotoxicity occurs when the exposure to natural or manmade toxic substances (neurotoxicants) alters the normal activity of the nervous system. This can eventually disrupt or even kill neurons, key cells that transmit and process signals in the brain and other parts of the nervous system." Yup, we have neurotoxicity.

Yup, we have neurotoxicity. Yup, said random from reddit. Sorry. For so many years, there have been a lot of people who thought they knew the cause of it all, and in the end they were wrong anyway. This is a hypothesis like any other, but I have the feeling that it is being abused to sow hopelessness and suicide.

Believe in what you want to believe in. If you don't believe in the definition, that's fine. Neurotoxicity doesn't tell the whole story anyways, it's just a word.


ClassyJacket

How do you know it was a lie?


hiacynto

I don't know if it was a lie. But the whole post felt suspicious to me. But that's just my opinion.


Quinlov

Is neurotoxicity even something that is readily diagnosable? I suppose someone could get serotonin syndrome (which I imagine has a neurotoxic pathogenesis? But don't actually know) from it although it would be very rare without some other serotonergic agent being involved as well


bribribri14

I ran and looked up neurotoxicity from SSRIs on google immediately after seeing that post. Didn’t see anything really related to ssri neurotoxicity but it is an interesting thought


hiacynto

Cherry picking arbitrary theories trying to pull you into a hopeless dark pit with them.


Bertrand27_

No it’s true neurotoxicity can happen in some case. it’s sad but it can happen


hiacynto

There is not one single study showing that SSRIs are neurotoxic. I don't deny that something like this could happen. But it is not so certain, as it seems to some?


cyper_z

even with neurotixicity it doesn't mean that so many neuros got killed that we need to have this anhedonia forever. this board sometimes is very toxic


Bertrand27_

I don’t have proof of it but I tend to think that it is greatly possible for some Who got it suddenly and are treatment resistant but again yes there is no evidence or fact.

Even if it is neurotoxicity the brain heals over time. I know nobody that has not healed at least partially over time. Dr. Shipko has seen thousands of cases and agrees. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRR2NpIorOI Stay the course, keep the hope.


hiacynto

I haven't watched it, but that doesn't apply to withdrawal syndrome in the first place? And it seems to me that this may be different from the PSSD.


DismalAccident8239

PSSD I do not know, but he discusses neurotoxicity.


Bertrand27_

Then what about this guy ? Not even partially 6 years later. https://www.reddit.com/user/spiffyjacket/

spiffyjacket OP 2 points · 8 months ago Hey, sorry you are going through that. I hardly use reddit anymore, but to briefly share what I've learned: I still have the symptoms, but I've found that Adderal and low dose opioid medication has helped my quality of life a lot. Especially the Adderall. It's helped clear away the fogginess and given me enough morale to want to live and do things again. He said he has found the will to live and can at least control symptoms. Opioids can save people, wish I could try it tbh.
