99.9% chance that you are short Serotonin
I’ve been prescribed SSRIs before. If possible I want to get a prescription for selegiline. I didn’t hear about it until I came to Thunder’s Place and now i’m really interested in selegiline and nootropics. I’ve also been prescribed Gabapentin. Made my dick shrink like no other. I couldn’t hardly get it up. Bad experience.
Hi Buulet, With the prescription of an SSRI and your high level of Melatonin use to get some sleep, it is just about a 99.9% chance that you have a Serotonin deficiency issue. You are not unique at all, as 30% of the population, to varying degrees, also have this problem. I recently answered someone on the board who had a problem with depression, about how the body works, and why using anti depressants cannot work, although the placebo effect can indeed make a difference. In your situation, if you are not feeling any other issues besides insomnia, and you can still feel good by taking the Melatonin, great. No need to change. However, keep in mind, that if you are stressed for any length of time, that this stress will cause your Serotonin deficiency to increase. As to which particular problem your Serotonin deficiency will materialize as, I do not know, but I would guess in your case that it would be depression.

Gabapentin does indeed slow things down a lot. But I see that you discovered that already.
Best of luck
