drug to reverse testosterone side effects?
Sep 20, 2000

thank you for taking time to answer the questions posted. Please help me out I'm desperate. I was on deca and testosterone replacement therapy. My side effect from that was severe testicular atrophy. I have stopped taking the supplements but my testicles have not grown again. Is there any drug I can take to make my testicles bigger? Anything I can do at all? Please help me out for it is very disturbing to me and causing trouble in my relations with others. thank you. MM

Response from Dr. Young

Unfortunately, testicular atrophy is slow to reverse. Other than not resuming steroid therapy, keeping HIV under control, there is not much more to do other than wait. -BY
