Depends . . .: You're describing two different issues, depression & erectile dysfunction, that respond to different therapies. Anti-depressants & psychotherapy can help make a difference in weeks to months. Depression can cause loss of libido (sex drive) & ed but there's no direct way to increase testosterone by eating any particular food. However, eating healthy & exercising regularly should help both.

Ed caused by depression. I researched n came to know depression causes ED many times. Am i right? Dont want medication as i read it causes impotence.
False assumptions: Depression can cause low libido and ed. Treatment of depression can normalize sexual desire and functioning, along with many other depressive symptoms. You seem to be assuming all depression treatments cause impotence for all men, but this is incorrect. Also some antidepressants [especially wellbutrin] don't cause sexual side effects. Psychotherapy is an effective non-drug treatment too.See 3 more doctor answers

LSD addiction: I have not seen pts who demonstrated addiction to lsd but more have 'polyabuse' using anything they can get their hands on to alter reality. The problem is that lsd (and other hallucinogen) abuse can lead to residual psychotic symptoms and may alter brain chemistry which can be difficult to treat. Some have intrusive flashbacks years after stopping, which can be as bad as an addiction. I would put lsd in the same category as heroin as drugs that should never be tried since their effects can be permanent.See 1 more doctor answer
Therapy can help: Sometimes symptoms of depression can last for a long time; it is referred to as chronic when it persists for at least 2 years. The good news is that treatment (medication/therapy) increases chances of getting better and staying better. In addition to therapy, individuals with depression often find The Mindful Way Workbook by Teasdale, Williams, Segal, and Kabat-Zinn helpful. Best to youSee 1 more doctor answer

Because of the disparity between what one acknowledges one is capable of doing and what is actually done , there is a felt need to explain it. "i must be lazy, crazy, stupid, ".See 2 more doctor answers
Probably not: It is true that depression causes folks to think to the point where they spend so much time doing that they get onto mental mischief. When that happens every thing they experience can be magnified in intensity, especially little things like itching. Doing things and not thinking so much seems a more productive way to go.See 2 more doctor answers
Depression treatment: Medications typically help, but as dr. Hossain mentioned, you may benefit from other treatment approaches, including various types of psychotherapy. Most of the studies showed that the best results achieved when medications are used along with psychotherapy.

It depends: I believe that there are 2 major types of depression 1) reactive to disturbing life events and 2) physiological. Then there are those that are mixes of the 2. The > physiologically based depressions can not be cured, but medication + psychotherapy can help keep them under control. Reactive ones need more psychotherapy to deal with the issues underlying the depression and can be "cured.".
