Reason: Low Testosterone Levels (178) Date: 23 March 2009
Side Effects
I am 51 years old. I take large amounts of anti-depresseants and pain pills for chronic pain. I have had my doctor monitor my testosterone levels for severl years. Tried Testim, to messy to smelly. After a couple of years my testosterone levels dropped from 300 to 178. I had no libbido. Starting using the 5mg patches two weeks ago. They seem to work well, increasing my libiddo. However, I developed a small level of mania and anxiety problems. Can find no research on use of Androderm in combination with medications I take. Now I have stopped using the patches for a few days now to see if the mental problems go away. Will have to wait and see and post later. If anyone else has had issues with Androderm an anti-depressants, please post.

Additional Thoughts
Seems to work well, just wondering about side-effects when mixed with other medications that cause low testosterone levels.
