Good day all
I want to find out, would depression meds numb out the effects of the karezza method, having its influence on serotonin and all, would karezza "overcome" these effects of depression meds.
My wife will be stopping the meds soon, as its keeps here in a "numb" state, obviously altering her libido, so the experience will improve for her, but I would love to know the science behind the oxytocin vs depression meds battle.


Not sure of the answer

I do know that some depression meds adversely affect some users' libido, as I've often read that in the accounts on porn recovery forums. Other depression meds have less of suppression effect, so she may want to speak with her physician.

The only thing I know for sure is that she should taper off the meds extremely slowly if she quits them...perhaps even more slowly than most doctors recommend. I saw an article about this not long ago: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/05/health/depression-withdrawal-drugs.html.


Thank you.
Fortunately she has only been on them for 3 months, but will speak to her Dr to discuss slowly coming off them
Many thanks
