If I'm not producing testosterone and taking testosterone…

If I'm not producing...

If I'm not producing testosterone and taking testosterone gel. Would it do any good to take a testosterone booster that's supposed to use up the free natural testosterone. Also been researching clomiphene.

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Low sex drive. Fatigue a lot. I am lazy and Or but I know I'm truly not

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Never heard of clomiphene. Till today. I have been wanting to go to a specialist just for these problems and I don't think a urologist is it. That's who I have been useing for the past 15 years

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm on xanax almost 4mg a day and hydrocodone. Have herniated disc and pinched nerve in back

I tested 900 at 10am in September for testosterone. Put the gel on at 420am. By 6. Or less I'm wore out. I do drive about 200 miles a day 5 days a week for work

It sounds like the opiates and xanax might be the issue

what doses do you take?

Just want to know who or how to seek help. Am I seeing the right doctor. Hypogonadism I think I seen a report say. Almost 4mg of xanax a day and 3 10-325 hydro

Did you know that xanax and hydro reduce your ability to make and use testosterone?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
