Anti-depressants for prostatitis
Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
I know the whole physical/mental thing is tied together. It just seems like a vicious cycle. If your prostate acts up, you feel crummy and get depressed. If I'm just plain depressed or stressed, it seems like that pain just heads straight for the old prostate. And the urologist I went to gave an info sheet on prostatitis and one of the things was maybe an anti-depressant would be necessary.

I guess I'm wondering if anyone's tried an anti-depressant and if it helps with prostatitis symptoms? I've also heard that certain anti-depressants prevent you from completely emptying your bladder which is no good for the prostate.

" I am sure that the main trigger for me is stress. I have had a lot of really bad stuff happen to me and am being treated for depression as a result. When something bad happns to me it seems to trigger the problem and I get laid up for sometimes weeks and then the depression gets worse as I start to worry that I am never going to get better. Like you say it is a circle. trying to relax is hard. :( "
