PSSD Doctors & Specialists

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In many cases, patients with post-SSRI sexual dysfunction (PSSD) not only have to deal with the condition itself, but are being further harmed by the responses of doctors including being ridiculed, laughed at, and told they should find a different partner [1]. They are often desperate to find someone in their country who has knowledge or experience of PSSD.

We have listed several doctors below who are familiar with the condition. We are not claiming that any of these doctors can help you as there is currently no treatment for PSSD.

Some of the healthcare professionals who agree PSSD exists that we asked didn’t want to be on our list. Some didn’t give a reason, and others were concerned that people would turn up looking for a cure when there is none. Some didn’t reply.

It should be noted that many healthcare professionals are aware of PSSD including GPs and psychosexual therapists. They don’t have to be on this list or regarded as an expert to recognize and diagnose the condition.
