What You Should Know
Tens of millions of Americans are treated for depression with a dizzying array of pharmaceutical medications as well as individual and group therapies.
Meantime, researchers and healthcare providers have observed an irrefutable association between the use of antidepressants and low testosterone levels in men (Low-T). Although a cause & effect relationship between antidepressants and testosterone inhibition has not been conclusively demonstrated, physicians with expertise in treating Low-T urge other clinicians to examine the possibility that patients who are treated for depression might benefit from testosterone replacement therapy.
Ideally, a cooperative relationship should exist among healthcare providers, enabling them to benefit from the experience and knowledge of their colleagues in different medical fields, including psychiatry and men’s health optimization.
