Testosterone May Help Depressed Men, American Longevity Center Confirms
Studies have shown dramatic improvement in depressed men taking testosterone supplements along with anti-depressants.
Miami, FL – American Longevity Center, an advanced anti-aging and proactive health clinic, says men who are unsuccessfully battling depression with prescription medicine should also have their testosterone levels checked. Studies have shown dramatic improvements in men taking testosterone supplements along with anti-depressants.
Testosterone is an essential hormone for men. Testosterone affects a man’s attitude, his level of self-confidence, his energy and sex drive. When testosterone levels decline, and they begin to do so by about 1-2% each year by the time a man is in his mid-twenties, he can feel anxious, lethargic and depressed. Sexual drive and sexual function are also affected.
A study conducted by Harvard Medical School’s McLean Hospital showed that nearly half of the men who had not responded to conventional depression treatment had low or low-to-normal testosterone levels. Men who participated in that study were also found to show dramatic improvement when testosterone was added to their depression treatment.
Harrison G. Pope, Jr., MD., a lead researcher in the Harvard study, said the findings suggested that lower-than-normal testosterone levels may be common in depressed men who failed to get better when taking anti-depressants.
Testosterone replacement therapy may be considered for men on anti-depressants that also have low levels of the hormone. Testosterone therapy from American Longevity Center may be prescribed as an oral supplement, cream or injectable.
