|Megace, androgel, and testosterone levels
Apr 24, 2003
Hello..I have been taking Megace to help bolster my appetite, but recently I read that Megace can actually lower one's testosterone level.Having been dealing with loss of libido and what seems like genital shrinkage, I am concerned about the addition of Megace to my daily intake of meds. Will Megace negate any positive effects I might get from Androgel?
Response from Dr. Henry
That is possible. Megace often leads to weight gain that is of marginal significance. My own use of Megace these days is very minimal due to a variety of concerns about side effects and efficacy. KH
Overly aggressive meds regiment?
