1. Do you think that low testosterone caused your depression or the other way around?
Since this is my first post, I'd like to say that I will eventually get around to introducing myself. I started TRT on May 10, and I may have something to contribute to the forum, and you can help me (I hope!)
To answer the question, I can't say, for sure. I hate to admit it, but I have taken antidepressants, extensively, for many years. Nothing has helped, so far. My TRT, to date, has done nothing for my depression, irritability, lack of libido, and unusual weakness. But, it's early. I've had six injections in 12 weeks (200mg testosterone cypionate).
2. Do you think that any meds you were taking for depression created any kind of sexual dysfunctions?
Absolutely! The main sexual side effect, for me, was difficulty in reaching orgasm, or delayed orgasm. For guys with premature ejaculation problems, I've read that some have been treated with an antidepressant.
3. Any tips for guys going through the same thing? Did anything make a big difference? (For some of you it may be testosterone!)
The jury is still out. I'm waiting for my latest blood test (total testosterone and free testosterone). Unfortunately, after six injections, the only thing I've noticed is a return of early-morning erections, which were absent for a long time.
In summary, I will write more, later, on my experience with TRT.
