My interest is primarily focused on exploring the etiological & pathophysiological factors pertaining to rare neurological conditions and how they impact brain physiology.

Currently, I'm researching alternatives to antidepressants that patients can use without fear of getting PSSD.

I'm research-reviewing and brainstorming rare iatrogenic, idiosyncratic disorders such as:

  • Post SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD).

  • Post Finasteride Syndrome (PFS).

  • Post Isotretinoin/Accutane Syndrome (PAS).

  • Protracted Dopamine Agonist Withdrawal Syndrome (DAWS).

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

I'm an author for the following peer-reviewed scientific publications:

- Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD): Biological Plausibility, Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Presumed Risk Factors


The idea behind "The Research Zone" blog is to provide patients with information in form of hypotheses on possible pathophysiological mechanisms behind post-drug syndromes as well as reviewing possible treatments that could offer symptomatic relief for patients.
