Absolutely. To me there is much more than just the anecdotal or asthetic symptoms that are being weighed in with my decision or choice. I have had a history of depression. I have had the benefit of an open minded physician. I have a the ability to treat a quantifiable deficiency in testosterone and/or an unquantifiable seretonin/dopamine/norepinepherine-deficiency/receptor issue.Originally Posted by xtraflossy
The idea of treating my head for depression with a 'aspirin' that has some other sides (BP/liver/lipid) or treating my body with a 'natural occuring' hormone supplementation is one that I am in the process of assessing. The benefits of testosterone treatment on my overall physical and mental health are far reaching, if indeed it is the issue. The benefits of an SNRI are psychologically benefitial, with somewhat limited physical health improvements.
I will be considering many things as I progress.
