My reason for TRT is to re-gain libido. If possible, I'd also love to ditch the psych meds, but they've helped me big time. I'm in a bit of a catch-22, because I can re-gain lido by dropping lexapro, but I freak out w/out it, even now (on TRT) I'm a mess if I miss a couple days.
But also, I think 300 total T is pretty damn low for age 37. It shocked me when I found that out. So hopefully it's the root of more than one problem.
Right now, my libido is still weak, but I've no idea what my hormone levels are on my current regimen. On the other hand, I feel way more energetic, motivated, focused, and my workouts and recovery time are way better. Those are all things I did not expect. I honestly didn't realize how poor my energy, motivation, etc. was until now. Maybe these things diminished so slowly over time that I didn't notice, or maybe my hormones have been off for so long that I accepted all of this as normal.
I wanted to start a log because I'm certain that questions will come up, and from reading the stickies, I don't want to be the guy who posts a random question without providing my background.
That said, it would be great to hear from others who were able to either (1) re-gain libido while on an SSRI or (2) even better, bail on an SSRI due to normalizing hormone levels (and thereby re-gain libido). With any luck, I'll be able to get to one of those destinations, and then my experience might help someone else going through the same thing.
