Re: Elavil- Experience Day 2 and question

Yoink, thanks for relaying your experience. Wow that sounds horrible. I'm really not happy that I'm taking an antidepressant, I've always prided myself in organic methods of solving stress and worry...but, the 10mg is the lowest dose that's typically prescribed, and for depression I read that it's t...

Elavil- Experience Day 2 and question

Not sure if this is the best place for this post, but here goes. I finally decided to start taking Elavil 2 days ago. I researched it quite a bit, and I don't think there can be any long term damage at 10mg that I'm prescribed. I take the 10mg at night before bedtime. So far, here's been my experien...

My fear is that he was on anti-depressants. :(

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

Hi again, Are you taking the Elavil now daily? I finally got my prescription filled, but haven't taken it yet. I keep reading about people that have some pretty bad side effects from it. This is how I'm thinking positively about this. I'm no where near better, and I have some days where I'm as bad a...

Is caffeine really bad?

I know most doctors and many around here will say to avoid caffeine for prostatitis. I'm wondering if there's any scientific evidence supporting the idea that caffeine makes it worse. I do some caffeinated green tea in the morning. Other than making me pee a bit more, I don't know that it's making m...

Zinc?

Any opinions on zinc? I bought a high quality brand and have been taking 30mg/day for the last couple weeks. No noticeable improvements.

Re: Terazosin (hytrin) Week 2 Results

Just a quick update here on my Terazosin experience. I moved up to the full dose of 10mg daily, and was experiencing a highly level of drowsiness during the day (you take it at night). I backed off to 5mg which seems okay but tried 6mg last night and today I'm back in the brain fog mode. Not sure if...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Just a quick update if anyone is interested: My bad symptoms came back big time this weekend after I had sex for the first time in a long time. The Terazosin doesn't seem to protect against post-sex soreness, burning, and low libido (several days of this now). I tried webslave's suggestion of relaxi...

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

I may add Terasozin. I was on Uroxatral before, but maybe a different alpha blocker could help me. My urologist wants to do a pelvic MRI on me; I have to make sure my insurance will approve it first, though. It's worth a shot. However, if you do Terazosin, commit to it for a while. I'm on week 6 no...

Re: New here- Here's my Story- Update

I'm getting better! :-D It's not dramatic, and I still have a ways to go before I can approach any kind of "cured" status, but right now things are looking up. I'm on my 4th week of the Terasozin, and it's the full 10mg dose now. So far this week I'm feeling less burning, an uptick in libido, and mo...

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

Ejaculation seems to be a big problem for a lot of us. 3 times in about 12 hours is how this whole thing started for me. Webslave had an interesting post about this. It may in fact be the finishing part that does us in, i.e. finishing with a deep thrust as opposed to just "letting it happen". It's w...

Thanks for all the comments, they really help. I'm leaning towards trying the Elavil, will report back here with results.

Kevkos - Here's my Story

Hi there, I officially joined the forums a couple weeks ago, and have been learning a lot reading various posts. I thought it might be helpful to me and others if I shared my full story. About 1 year ago, I was kind of newly dating a girl, and there was a lot of physical activity. One night we had s...

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

Thanks for the info on Elavil. Sorry to hear that you are still struggling with this. I'm still putting off trying it, I'm on my 4th week of Terazosin, and at least it's helped with my libido, as well lessened the pressure I was feeling that really puts me in a bad mood! I'm thinking a couple more w...

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

The Elavil made me initially thrilled, but its effects have weakened in the past week and a half. I still no longer have perineum discomfort (yay!), but my penile pain/soreness has mostly returned and my rectal pressure is back to where it used to be. The heightened libido that I felt at the penile...
