Avatar m tn Well I think you should also take blood tests for FSH, LH and Testosterone and perhaps repeat prolactin again in a few months time. If you know that you produced sperm at some point in your lifetime, then probably you will be able to produce sperm again once the medication takes full effect and prolactin is stabilized. However, FSH is the best test you can take because then you will know whether your testicles are working or not.

Avatar m tn My brother has severe COPD. He's on oxygen at least 16hrs. per day. He's also overweight, drinks alot and still smokes a pack or so everyday. His oxygen level is 72% but when he stays on oxygen it goes up to 80. He can't walk across the street without getting "all in." He says he only has a year or two to live. I think he's wrong and with all the medications and treatments available, he'll be around for 10-20 years.

Avatar m tn Hi, if you had a stent to the only blockage in your heart, then you can tell the Doctor after 3 months you don't wish to take a beta blocker any more. Some patients just can't put up with them because of side effects or whatever. I have no idea why, but it's just an automatic thing to prescribe beta blockers. If you have no other blockages and your heart has no damage, then it's plain to see that there is no need to play with your heart using meds.
