SSRI effects on Testosterone

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. It does reduce testosterone via the release of endogenous LH vis a vis loosening of hypothalamic tone (serotonin's mechanism).

    LH then raises test acutely but drops test quickly because it aromatizes heavily, and estrogen (to my understanding) is the negative controller of testosterone output.

  2. I thought there was like a 20% chance of lowering. I have a female doc, going to do all of the necessary test and try to get trt. If she disagrees there is a clinic that basically asked me what I want over the phone, he is a CASH only kindof guy though.

    Tell her that you are a WWF wrestler. On a serious note most MD's do not understand effects of low/average testosterone. I believe they are skeptical of people trying to get prescribed testosterone. Many MD's will want to do the test yearly as well instead of treating it then.

    SSRI's are a tough call because they are very new in the grand scheme of medicine. I would say try to ween yourself as low as possible.

  4. md's are f*ckheads. Go to a D.O.

    Every MD I've gone to about my t (low-300's) was ****y and had their heads in their ass

  5. high serotonin and high testosterone will equal the ultimate alpha male feeling type confidence.

    See if u have high testerone but low serotonin, ur gonna be roid raged and grumpy.

    High serotonin and high test, will equal agressiveness and confidence, but in a positive way.

  6. P-T axis complex stuff.

    Do you need a test script?

    Do what guys have always done .. cycle B6, Mucana puriens (Powerful, 1-carboxy), theanine, tyrosine ... to boost GABA/dopamine. Or dead-lifts, squats and lots of mono-fats, fish oil (fats). That will boost hGH and give you a better shot at boosting test naturally. Supplements to control prolactin ... that sort of thing.

    Then again my advice on this thread has been demonstable junk.

  7. Yeah this is a simple issue.

    High seratonin causes lowered dopamine. Lowered dopamine = less sex drive (even if testosterone is normal)

    If people are having issues with libido on SSRI's, something like wellbutrin is normally prescribed as it's a dopamine reuptake inhibitor. That, or what was said above ^^

    If you're feeling a little risky, or want to experiment, taking low dose deprenyl with low dose instant release wellbutrin (NOT the extended release), this has an incredible effect on dopamine and libido...this combined effect is similar to a dopamine agonist. I would heavily research this though and be careful. Check out Imm Inst forum for more info.

    SSRE's are a better way to go though, much better than SSRI's, but are not available in North America via script.

  8. SSRI's and MAOI's will make you want to eat but it will kill off your test levels. libido=0. I hate SSRI's..... espicially paraxotine. **** killed my test levels... i get SEVERE physical withdrawls when i get off it.
