Testosterone withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone withdrawal symptoms


Avatar n tn It can only be prescribed by a qualified physician (usually an addiction medicine specialist) My recommendation for ANYONE that has become addicted to opiates like Vicodin,Lorcet, percodan, codeine, etc is to contact an addiction medicine specialist and ask them about this drug. It can nearly eliminate withdrawal symptoms. (It can be expensive though) My problem is that I may be withdrawing from this drug, but that is a whole other story.
Avatar f tn Because I am over protective I am not sure if he should get a second opinion on what testosterone to try and if he should even try testosterone? Hopefully someone will be able to read my posts. Thank you very much for your time.
Avatar n tn I am concerned that I am not having withdrawal bleeding on continuous sequential HRT. No others symptoms or problems -- feeling great! I wanted to do HRT on this schedule to keep uterus healthy , i.e., endometrium flat ... But my 1st and only ultrasound, after only 8mos of HRT (Vivelle dot .1mg x2 weekly and 14 days of 200mg Prometrium each month), shows thickened endometrium at 1.2 cm?? US was done on day 4 after last Prometrium tab -- maybe too soon in cycle?

444932 tn?1273984397 Why did it take two days after stopping the pills for the withdrawal (if that's what this is) to get so bad? I googled withdrawal symptoms and was linked to a site for suboxone (sp??). Has anyone tried that? Does it work? Is it worth it? I have not told my medical doctor about this b/c I don't want it in my medical records. I don't want my employer to find out. I don't want my family to find out. I just want to deal with this and get it over with.
Avatar n tn After being on it for about a year I discontinued use and yes I did go through nightmarish withdrawal symptoms. But that's been over 5 months ago and I still have no sex drive whatsoever. Before Paxil I had what I assumed was a normal sex drive for a 50 plus year old male individual. Now nothing. Is this something I have to look forward to permanently or is there a glimmer of hope down the line.
Avatar m tn I hardly ever take the soma but take 2 to 3 4mg Xanaflex daily. I also take HRT in which I use 200mg of testosterone weekly and also smoke marijuana for pain management. Now, I only smoke maybe 1 joint a week. Now, to my question: Last night when I got up to use the bathroom, I got chills and I ran back to bed to get warm. I have had this in the past but was wondering could this still be a sign of withdrawals? Do you get chills from withdrawals or what else can it be from.
1998071 tn?1327524983 I'm new here & not so good at finding the exact type of thread so here it goes. My addiction started with injuries. I never took pain meds until I was desperate. of course things eventually got out of control. Cut to it & I had a problem so once I realized i was an addict I went on suboxone. My greedy !@#@#$ Doctor insisted on giving me a higher dose then I asked for & to top it off he convinced me i should be on it for a few years.
Avatar m tn I take 16mg a day and I am SO TIRED! Had my testosterone checked...it was fine. Don't know if this forum is best...it's been a year and-a-half since precious post. But here goes: I was on up to 300mg of oxycodone till VA put me on Bupenorphine (suboxone). I take 16mg a day and I am SO TIRED! Had my testosterone checked...it was fine. I was taking the Bupenorphine in AM but switched to PM thinking the bupe's possible side effect of fatigue would happen at night, but no.
Avatar n tn It would be really helpful if you guys could tell me what symptoms exactly that you experienced with withdrawal. I have some other medical conditions besides the cancer which generally make me feel ******. It's hard for me to tell sometimes what is from the methadone withdrawal and what is from my other problems (severe reflux disease, pain from thoracic outlet syndrome in my arm, which is a nerve inpingement, arthritis, bone pain from cancer meds, shortness of breath on exercise, fatigue).
Avatar m tn I have been using Testosterone (Sustanon) for a year x 1 week at low dose to improve mood, supplement moderate work-outs, improve sex drive etc. I am 54 year old and have been using without MD involvement. I can no longer afford it nor clomid or other suggested drugs to kick-in organic test production and my question is: WHAT, IF ANY, SYMPTOMS SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE NEXT WEEKS/MONTHS WITHOUT SUSTANON AND NATURAL TEST PRODUCTION? THANKS.
429155 tn?1205676864 MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
1474625 tn?1371100679 I've read Neurontin works to relieve some opiate withdrawal symptoms. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so how many milligrams a day did/do you take and how long does it take for the Neurontin to start working? I'm currently taking about 70mg of hydrocodone/day and I want to stop. I hate being on opiate painkillers for so long. I have a prescription for 100mg of gabapentin to take 3x a day. Does anyone know how much to take for cold turkey opiate withdrawal?
Avatar m tn although i am still on suboxone, i WAS at 32 mgs daily (because sub wasnt even strong enough to over ride the WD symptoms of methadone completely until 6 weeks was over) when my 6 weeks was up, i immediately tapered to 10 mgs, with NO ISSUES AT ALL, no withdrawal symptoms at all. i HAVE gone up in dose to try to combat chronic pain and it does help SOME, but not all pain is diminished.

352804 tn?1300367154 Hi, The withdrawal symptoms of tramadol depend upon the duration of use and the dose. If the drug was taken in high dosages over prolonged period of time then the withdrawal symptoms are usually severe. There is a medication known as Buprenorphine which is often used in Tramadol withdrawal to reduce the withdrawal symptoms. Also it is important to keep in the mind that withdrawal should always be done gradually and under supervision of the prescribing doctor.
Avatar n tn Reading everyone's concerns on this message board (along with my concerns) I thought it might be a good experiment(and a helpful reference guide for everyone) to list ALL the symptoms they have had and ALL the tests that have come back normal and ALL the specialists they have seen that have concluded that it was all anxiety. If you can put it in a LIST FORM with no back story so it is easy to reference that would be great.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Avatar n tn There isn't any indication of whether you are male or female, but while reading your post my heart really goes out to you. My husband suffered with a constant chronic headache for several months after discontinuing his prescription of Klonopin. He had been taking a daily dose that increased over a period of approximately two years - with the highest dose reaching 3mg spread through-out the day. (Morning - noon - evening - bedtime, etc. With the bedtime dose being 1 to 1-1/2 mg.
Avatar f tn Topical and buccal medications are preferred over injections because they provide relatively stable testosterone concentrations not easily attainable with intramuscular injections Testosterone supplementation should be administered in amounts needed to manage symptoms of hypogonadism. Amounts higher than needed may increase the risk of prostatic hypertrophy and prostate cancer growth rates.
Avatar n tn If a woman is still menstruating and her ovaries are removed, this causes a big drop in estrogen that happens quickly. The effect is a real withdrawal. Usually, the estrogen needs are greatest in the first 12 months or so. Often, initial dosages are higher than 0.3 mg of Premarin and may be 0.625mg or if that doesn't work, 1.25mg daily. The goal is to get enough to make the symptoms tolerable in the short run and to taper that dose down over the first 6-12 months or 12 to 18 months.
Avatar m tn He said it was extremely difficult, and after the acute withdrawal, the post acute symptoms affected his personality in an even more negatively dramatic way, to the point where he decided to go back on it to save his marriage. One dose was enough for him to realize that it wouldn't be the answer.
904953 tn?1242315226 my doctor checked my testosterone levels and found out that they were very low (opiates stop your body from making testosterone) so my doc gave me a shot of testosterone and in 4 days i felt like a new man... now i get a shot of testosterone every two weeks and i feel great...
Avatar m tn I am still waiting for my test results but I have many symptoms of low testosterone. I even get anxiety about going places and being social sometimes, luckily my wife is understanding. I have been like this since I quit drinking and smoking weed. I have also been depressed for a while. I am kind of hoping my hormone test will show something wrong so I can start to try and get it fixed. Anyone else have health anxiety or hypochondria?
Avatar m tn I recently went to the doctor (new doctor) to talk about my ordeal and requested my testosterone levels be measured. My testosterone levels were 596 ng/dl and she said this was normal. Ultimately she said I was bi-polar manic depressive and put me on Prozac and Symbyax. I was reading online that 596 ng/dl was normal for a 55 year old man. Before I try the anti-depressants I wanna make sure this isn't a low testosterone thing.
Avatar n tn May i ask what sub is? my dr. put me on buspar 10 mg.
Avatar n tn This is the 2nd time I tried to get off of Lexapro (1st time was very unsuccesful- horrible withdrawal symptoms, including suicidal thoughts, severe irritability). It took me roughly 2 1/2 months to get off of the drug this time around.
Avatar f tn If you are having withdrawal symptoms - what type? I would not taper so quickly. In such a case as a larger dose, and when you are on it longer, I would take your time and taper off taking a few days to up to a week on each lower dose. You can also try to taper down in smaller increments as well as that will be easier and can go faster (to a POINT - don't ever go too fast!!!).
Avatar n tn An MRI scan came back normal, no lesions or signs of tumor or MS. Standard blood work came back normal. I have had some perimenopausal symptoms for a while and a blood test showed low testosterone levels. Don't know what that means but my doctor was not concerned. The most alarming thing now are these muscle spasms.
Avatar m tn Hello Dear, The treatment aims toward resolving hyperprolactinemic symptoms or reducing tumor size. Patients on medications that cause hyperprolactinemia should have them withdrawn if possible. Patients with hypothyroidism should be given thyroid hormone replacement therapy. • When symptoms are present, medical therapy is the treatment of choice. Patients with hyperprolactinemia and no symptoms (idiopathic or microprolactinoma) can be monitored without treatment.
