  • Other than testosterone treatments, what other prescriptions or natural items can be used to help increase sexual desire?
    I am a male in my 30s and have had a low sexual interest level for years. It's been difficult to deal with knowing that It's a part of life that for some reason doesn't seem to ever be a prioritized thought or desire. Although I know love and attraction, taking it to the sexual level almost seems forbidden. I'm not afraid of sex and enjoy it when in action, but never proactively seek to engage. Are there any other treatments than testosterone or viagra that would increase dopamine or adrenaline? I feel I need to be hyper or energized yo be driven to seeking sexual activity. I eat well and exercise, but am having a difficult time finding any lasting remedy. I've had testosterone pellets, and the first treatment lasted about 1.5 weeks and was not effective for the next 2.5. I've had about 20 shots with only two being noticeably effective, and androgel and testim didn't really seem to be all that effective either. Viagra doesn't always work either.
  • Is valerian safe to take with the rx drugs below?
    As a man in his late seventies I have sleep interruption issues, including length of sleep (only 4-6hrs.) as well as quality of that sleep. Having been apprised of the dangers of OTC as well as Rx meds increasing risk of dementia, I am researching natural supplement alternatives such as low dose, sublingual Melatonin, Valerian and Chamomile tea. QUESTION: Danger of Contraindication with above Rx drugs.
  • What's the cause of heart palpitations
    E-fib or irregular heart beat, more noticeable at night. Have been on hormone replacement since 1995. Started on the patch that caused irritations then switch to 1% Androgel packets. Used 1/2 a packet per day for years, then libido dropped and started using full packet. Everything going good until I started using 25mgs of zinc some months later I started having heart palpitations.
    Stopped androgel and zinc, heart palpitations stopped after 2 weeks, almost afraid to start up again!
  • What are the side effects of axiron
    What are the Axiron withdraw symptoms when you go cold turkey and stop taking it?
  • What is the effect of taking testosterone while having sciliosis?
    For transgenders, do you know what is the effect of taking testosterone while having scoliosis?

    For specialist of endocrine/orthopedic/basta specialists:
    (gender therapists)- what effects are you expecting when your patient is taking testosterone while having scoliosis? Will you let them still to take hrt just to achieve what they need and want?

  • Off label use of drugs for peripheral neuropathy causing memory loss (1 response)
    I have peripheral neuropathy with standard symptoms of burning, tingling, stabbing pain on the tops of my feet. I have had this condition for over 15 years getting worse over time. The last 5 years I have seen a couple of doctors and through trial and error we settled on a combination of Savella and Methadone to dampen the pain which can go from a nuisance constant 2 to "I'm ready to cut off my feet" constant 8. Taking Savella and Methadone keeps me at a 2 or below except in the evenings when it can get to 5 or 6 and keep me awake. Over a period of a year or so, and I can't remember when it started, I was given Tizanidine, Pramipexole, Oxcarbazpine, Gabapentin and Lyrica (at separate times). I do not remember which of these I was on for the longest or at what point I noticed I was unable to remember what happened the day before, conversations I had with co-workers, decisions and agreements with my manager and things I had done earlier in the week or month. I'm sure a timeline could be put together but since I had lost short term memory I could not do it even now. When I finally figured out what was happening, I was close to losing my job as a Computer Hardware Engineer, which requires extreme concentration and memory. I stopped taking whatever I was on at the time and looked for anything to help me regain my memory and ability to concentrate. I am now taking herbal supplements and using iPhone apps to help me regain concentration and memory. After over 6 months of being off of these drugs I am close to having my previous facilities back. I cannot stress enough the importance of a doctor talking with their patients about memory loss and the ability to concentrate when taking these types of drugs. One of my doctors just gave me Topiramate to try and help with the evening pain and after reading the side effects I will not even try it. Better to be in pain and keep my job.

    What really bothers me is I think simply taking one additional pill of Savella will solve my pain issue, but my doctors scoff whenever I make a suggestion and try to put me on something else. After making a medication suggestion one doctor threatened to take me off all medication. I guess he showed me who's the boss. All this is causing me to trust doctors less and less.
