so my grandfather had Alzheimers stage 2 almost to stage 3.anyone else here with POIS have a parent or grandparent with Alzheimers as well?im considering corresponding with some Alzheimers researchers in hopes that they find some interest in the similarity of the effects of my POIS and Alzheimers.
Regarding the hormonal testing, I've had almost everything possible tested..."
jferr, you asked for recommended medications. A full range of hormonal testing with an endocrinologist led to my 80% POIS cure with testosterone replacement therapy. Ask your doctor about hormonal testing (via bloodwork).
Wow, If only I could find one of those [POIS-empathetic endocrinologists]. I've seen more than a few, pitched it right and everything. Even offered a reward or two, None of them were accepting of it.. I'm happy for you man thats awesome.
May I ask what type of testing you did and what you tested ? I would love to give that testing information to my doctor if you don't mind. It would be great to make some kind of progress.

Kurtosis, Thank you for your response..I had my testosterone tested both before and after and free testosterone was low but barely. They told me my testosterone balance was normal.

They told me my testosterone balance was normal.My testing showed "normal" too, until I did mine at large university medical lab with a top endocrinologist.I also asked for MORE (50% more) testosterone than "standard" treatment. It made a nice further dent in my POIS.But this is just my story. Until we do formal POIS medical research, you will need to unfortunately ***experiment*** to find out what works for you. The more I studied this forum in 2007-2008 and listened to hormonal TESTING recommendations, it led to my 80% to 90% cure.
Ritalin, caffeine, Levitra + other unknown factors sometimes bring me astonishingly to 100% POIS-free. (Yes, I'm still amazed 2+ years later!)But I am NOT sure who this will work for and who it will not. But several members here have found relief with TRT.
Kurtosis, from what I know it has never been proved that ZMA is increasing testosterone, but maybe it's true for people who have a zinc deficiency.
jferr, I can relate to what you said about being paranoid around people. I guess you can call this social anxiety. I believe it is probably some guilt-type reaction that your subconscious sets off after orgasm. Sort of like you sense that people know what you did. I usually get this after having orgasmed, especially to porn. That is why I try to stay away from porn. I don't really get the effects if i just masturbate without any material. You don't have to look at porn to masturbate, but you can masturbate without looking at porn. If i do get this feeling,I will have the anxious feeling for that day and maybe the next, the day after that it goes away. After discovering Niacin I am a lot better too, but I also make the mistake of taking niacin after O because I really do not plan my orgasms.
I just spoke on the phone with the center at Harvard.http://alzheimersweekly.com/content/alzheimers-disease-research-center-harvard-medical-school They want me to put together an email describing the correlation between POIS, relatives who have Alzheimers, and the similarity in mental symptoms one gets from POIS to the symptoms one gets from Alzheimers.This is who I am to send the email to:http://madrc.mgh.harvard.edu/liang-yap-phdSo I am going to ask one last time, just in case, do any of your relatives, for those who have POIS, have or had Alzheimer's? If you dont know for sure, please check and post here if so. After a few days I will compose the email and send it out.
