Im currently withdrawing from testosterone at the moment. Im on my 4th week due to my new doctor wanting to do testing. Long story short, my wife and we're currently at a wedding and she asked me if I remembered when our friend lived with us for 5 months. I looked at her and said no. This was a few years ago that she lived with us but I have no memory of this at all. Honestly it brought tears to my eyes because I honestly have no memory of this. I'm only 28 but Alzheimer's does run heavy in my family at a young age. Not 28 young but late 60s young. Can low t cause this?

I believe so.  I work in service industry and go to 6-7 people's homes every day. I have to admit I don't always remember what I did at the house after I leave. Pretty scary feeling and it comes from low t in my opinion.

It was very scary. This is the first time something like this has hapened. I'm usually forgetful or scatter brained but never to the point where I have absolutely no memory of something that took place for 5 months of my life.

Yes there are srudies linking testosterome and memory.  However they are variable in some ways

#1 thing: dont panic!  Seriously, just let it go.  Many things can do that from sleep disorders to stress to certain medications.  Can I ask if you are taking any medications

I'm currently taking 1mg of Xanax on occasion for anxiety, and doxipen nightly for anxiety. Both of which I've taking in the past.

I believe this has been addressed on another thread, but apparently long-term doxipen use can be a problem for cognition and memory (connections to dementia/Alzheimer's Disease):

Doxipen is an anticholinergic:

And, of course, talk to your doctor about it.  I think we all have a moment where we can't remember something and panic.  But, if it's more than that, double check with a pro.
