    Fasting

    Fasting could certainly help and I recommend trying it, if you do, please report your results. I remember reading of several people who had tried 2-3 day fasts. I guess the question is, if PAS really is caused by reduced expression of 5AR1, which is still unknown at this stage. How much has...

    Is this PAS

    It sounds unusual but is definitely possible. I’ve not heard of anyone who developed PAS like symptoms changing back to normal and then getting worse whilst off the drug.

    Dubya_B Lab Results

    Thanks for posting. This is pretty extensive lab work. Its interesting that your FSH is low, this may also account for the low fertility you reported.

    Anxiety

    Thats interesting to hear. Glad you're feeling better. Thats interesting that you think Bupropion and Buspirone helped with your libido as well. Have you noticed any major side effects from these drugs. If you could, please post this in the what has / hasn't worked thread as well, as it may be...

    Flynn - Blood Results

    Hi there, yes you have very low FSH levels as I and several PAS sufferers have reported whilst having normal LH levels. I think FSH levels could be of some significance but its hard to say with any certainty yet. I wrote a little bit about a potential link I made between 5 alpha reductase and...

    Machine Learning-Guided Research on PAS, PFS, ME/CFS and more

    Thanks for posting this, its very interesting and all contributions to the forum are hugely appreciated. I did look into inflammation a little but need to do more research. I remember reading a post where a user linked PFS to inflammation. The only issue I have is, how could inflammation cause...

    Flynn - Blood Results

    Did you get your Leutinising hormone tested as well. It's quite useful to know both of these test results together. Thanks for letting me know that youore FSH was low. Are you able to post any other blood results, and are you able to post the normal range for your test? No problem if not.

    THEORY - PAS and PSSD/Serotonin Theory - (Serotonin Overactivity - 5HT2C Receptors) - Plausible/Would be Treatable

    Thanks for reporting the side effects. That would be greatly appreciated. You might even want to share some of the info relating Accutane to 5 Alpha reductase and post Finasteride syndrome (PFS). In all honesty, most doctors have no idea what to make of this stuff as they haven't done any...

    THEORY - PAS and PSSD/Serotonin Theory - (Serotonin Overactivity - 5HT2C Receptors) - Plausible/Would be Treatable

    I also highly recommend you report your side effects to RxISK - https://rxisk.org/report-a-drug-side-effect-2/ You can do this anonymously and they are perhaps the only organisation who is actually recording this data and publishing it. Such as this -...

    THEORY - PAS and PSSD/Serotonin Theory - (Serotonin Overactivity - 5HT2C Receptors) - Plausible/Would be Treatable

    Yes I felt it was important to try and aggregate some of the information about this in one place. I completely understand when you say that something doesn't feel 'normal'. Hormone tests don't reveal anything and are the standard response of doctors, as in a normal situation, it would indeed...

    Prof Melcangi - PFS and PSSD

    Prof Melcangi who is the a major researcher for the PFS foundation recently released a paper linking PFS to PSSD. I think he is probably correct, but it seems crazy that nobody is even mentioning PAS or post retinoid sexual dysfunction (PRSD) as there are far clearer links been PFS and PAS then...

    Thanks for posting, you also have low FSH like me. Have you ever had DHEA-S tested?

    THEORY - PAS and PSSD/Serotonin Theory - (Serotonin Overactivity - 5HT2C Receptors) - Plausible/Would be Treatable

    Thanks for your reply, thats very interesting. So did Accutane give you sexual sid effects such as low libido? And bupropion directly helped the libido issues you had? Or did you just have low libido before accutane? Also have you ever reported your sexual side effects anyway?

    THEORY - PAS and PFS - 5-Alpha Reductase Enzyme - Very Plausible/Currently seems to be the most likely cause of PAS

    No there is always hope as gene expression can potentially be altered in neural cells though it represents a challenge. I have outlined one of the potential cures/treatments that in theory could work. Have a read - https://pasforum.info/threads/plausible-cure-crispr-cas9-gene-editing.21/ This...
