LostBoy, I am very interested in having my testosterone levels checked. I believe that this could be a source of my depression and I am struggling to find a doctor who will take this seriously.

First, what type of Test replacement therapy are you using, i.e. gel, patch, oral? What dosage? HOw long before you felt effects on your mood?

Also, how did you find a doctor who took this seriously?

Thanks for your reply

> Ive found that treatment for obstructive sleep apnea with CPAP, combined with testosterone, is far superior to any psychiatry drug I ever tried. I found out that my blood oxygen was desaturating down to 84% in a sleep study. A lung doctor put me on CPAP and for the first time in ten years I had dreams and restorative sleep.

If you have failed ten medications...get a clue and use your brain...it probably aint pure depression. Either a medical condition is causing or exacerbating your problem...or your diagnosis is wrong.
