Avatar n tn I have been suffering from terrible pain and have been put on some pretty strong narcotics. This has went on for 14 years before a Great pain Dr and New Personal MD ran tests and found these issues thus far. My question is, how long will it take for my Vitamin D to return to normal with Megadoses of D3/Calcium and Testerone Treatments? Months? Years? I also found I'm very constipated, I have went through 4 bottles of mag cit. and have been taking miralax twice daily.
Avatar f tn Well you got me interested lol, so I searched Methadone and weight gain on this forum and there are tons of people with the same complaints. Someone said it slows your metabolism and makes you retain water. Do a search and read some of the comments.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with taking narcotics during entire pregnancy (be it prescribed or not) and what the outcome of the baby was. Any experience at all. I've had to be on them for a medical condition and I'm terrified for the baby to be born addicted. I've heard it totally depends, some are some aren't. My doctor seems to think the baby will be fine, but that is not good enough for me.
Avatar m tn m just wondering how fast that can change and how often would it be considered wise to check. with all the aches and pains in my back I feel I wouldn't know if my kidneys were giving me pain as opposed to my back. Maybe this isn't even a concern with my dosage but I thought I'd ask.
Avatar m tn I got the first bloody gums ever and have tried several things and found that brushing and flossing with hydrogen peroxide helps but ya gotta not swallow and rinse really well afterwords.

Avatar f tn I have been lurking for a few months and this is my first time posting. I have been in PM for almost a year now. Originally it began as lower back pain which i have had 3 steroid injections with minimal relief and then 2 facet blocks with moderate relief. I was also taking 2 5/325 percocets per day with adequate relief. I am a Mom of a 5 year old and am not looking for an addiction problem on top of my pain problems.
Avatar f tn I would like to hear what other pain specialists say about this (besides dr. Junig who posts here who hates narcotics but loves sub and takes it himself), have to say about this complicated problem. Narcotics, or what else or sometimes narcotics?
Avatar m tn But long term use of testosterone and other steroids have transient effects and there is no scientific evidence that performance is enhanced. There is abuse liability so I would suggest you to follow up with a physician or endocrinologist for case to case prescriptions. Take care!
Avatar f tn Suboxone not only effects sex drive it effects Testosterone levels. There is a lot of misunderstanding of this out there. Viagra and Cialis without sex drive equals an erection that allows for sex but no satisfaction to the male if there is no drive. Low testosterone causes low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Avatar n tn The doctor checked my testosterone level due to and adverse affect of opiates, and I didnot have any. He put me on supplemental testosterone, but I have read it would come back naturally and taking supplements will stop the natural production of my testosterone. Anyone had this issue.

Avatar m tn My husband and I got clean off heroin 4 years ago and it took around 6 to 7 months before his sex drive returned. Its still not what it was while we were on drugs, bit its "normal" now. It will come back, hang in there and don't get frustrated with your wife, just tell her the truth.

Avatar n tn The size is determined by the testosterone receptors which don’t change in number after puberty and thus taking any testosterone boosters is not going to affect the size of the penis. I sincerely hope I am able to address your query & hope that helps. Take care.
415399 tn?1209504302 I totally know how you feel, I am frustrated in much of the same ways you are. My boyfriend suffers from PE and has his whole life. Now, I'm sure that being on narcotics isn't helping your sex life, and I know how frustrating it is. I have had the same "couch" nights you have had. I am frustrated because I love the man, and he is affectionate, but he thinks that THAT is enough. I Don't want to settle for just affection, I think you shouldn't either!
Avatar m tn I made an appointment with a Urologist a couple weeks ago because I have been having issues with maintaining an erection and one of the things that the doctor did was take some blood to check my testosterone levels. I am involved in a committed relationship and it has taken a tole on both of us for months. Back in 2007 I took testosterone (Steroids) for about 6-8 weeks. My testosterone level came back as 287 which is low for a man of any age.
Avatar n tn I am extremely depressed and am suffering with hypothyroidism, low testosterone, too much estrogen, high cholesterol and low Vitamin D what is wrong with me? I originally thought that everything here is linked to depression from stress and anxiety so I started taking Lexapro for the depression. But my wife thinks that maybe all of these things are linked to a health issue. About 11 months ago I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and low thyroid, so I am taking red rice yeast and .
Avatar m tn Has anyone else had a rise in BP with testosterone? Im 36 and in decent shape, BMI is 33 and am taking BP meds. Looking for feedback or personal experiences. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I just wanted to see if low testosterone was still common. I failed to mention I am bipolar and been on many meds and also overweight. Just wanted to see if there were any males that deal with low testosterone. I already had planned on getting the test.
Avatar n tn My urologist tested my testosterone only, which he concluded was normal, and said he expected my situation to improve. Well, it has not, and it is causing me major stress. I first began having problems about a year ago soon after a breakup. Since then, I have not felt right. My level of sexuality plummeted, and I simply don't know what to do. Have there been any traumatic occurrences lately in your life?
Avatar m tn With all the results you have, I hate to ask, but could you just post your TSH Free T3 and Free T4 and include the reference ranges provided for each? Ranges vary fron lab to lab, that is why they are needed to see how you are with your thyroid, as far as Testosterone is concerned, it normally does not affect the thyroid levels.
Avatar m tn I have been battling with low testosterone for a few years and trying to address it through natural means. Lost 20 lbs body fat (Now 5'08" 156 lbs 13 % BF), added heavy weight lifting in 3x weekly, eat a low carb high vegetable intake diet with more than adequate fat content, etc. Sadly doesnt seem to be helping.
Avatar m tn My question is, shortly after I began Testosterone Replacement Therapy and am using Androgel daily. Is this an issue that I should be concerned with in regards to the CSCR? Or is it really corticosteriods that are a problem? This a concern to me since I have noticed a significant improvment in my overall general well being since using Androgel.
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced a low testosterone level after this tumor removal and if so what course of action did you have to take? I am 46 now and I understand testosterone levels do begin to drop a bi tin males once reaching the age of 40.
484508 tn?1290010544 See if this helps,If you have been diagnosed as having too much testosterone and you want to rid yourself of the symptoms, the best course of treatment is bio-identical hormone therapy (BHT). Over the past few decades, physicians have prescribed either synthetic hormones or hormones derived from animals. Hormones from both of these sources can have undesirable side effects. Look for a doctor that will prescribe bio-identical hormones.
