User :   over to adi he will talk directly
User :   I have been on Tazzle, clofranil for some months

Doctor :   We will find out the cause first
User :   ok sure.
Doctor :   If there are no causes, u may have to use it
Doctor :   how old are you and your wife?
User :   so my doctor said that because he could not see me improving with tazzle after stopping use he changed the medicine to penegra.

Doctor :   Low testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood.
User :   ok
Doctor :   but urs is fine in average

Doctor :   but I will take advantage of increase the serum free testosterone
Doctor :   u r average . My thought is make it above average
User :   how do we do that
Doctor :   Let us bring it upto 200
Doctor :   for that you need testosterone patches or injections
Doctor :   replace harmonies for few months and measure the levels
Doctor :   maitain around 175-200
User :   isnt the injection temporary? any side effects? and should i take it while continuing with tazzle and penegra
Doctor :   consult urologist or sexologist or endocrinilogist and request the harmone replacement when there is genuine problem
Doctor :   we are appprorcohing multiple ways
Doctor :   when u r fine on harmones and problem is resoleved u do not need penegra
Doctor :   Is it temporary?
User :   doctor has asked me to take for 10 days and report back to him
Doctor :   answer depends on repeat lab values and sexual performace
Doctor :   if the increased levels increases ur performce u may take monthly one injection
User :   is that also a lifelong thing. Are there no natural ways to increase testosterone levels?
Doctor :   there are none
Doctor :   it is harmone produces in testes
User :   is the testosterone injection like a steroid?
Doctor :   it steroid class
Doctor :   but it is not completley having the steroid effeects
Doctor :   every drug has own action
Doctor :   u r taking for medical purpose and that too under doctor scrutinity
Doctor :   carefully repeating the labs so tat levels do not go sky high
Doctor :   Do u follow me?
Doctor :   Many people try this.
User :   ok
User :   so u are saying that i have to be on lifelong medication for my problem
Doctor :   really this Q puts me in very awkward position, because I am one time chatting doctor, if the condition improves the doctor will stop the medicines if no improvement he will continue it.
Doctor :   How can i completely tellu u need it lie long
User :   ok
User :   so now i should continue with tazzle and penegra
User :   and cnsult my doctor for increasing testosterone levels
Doctor :   rather asking permanent or temporary, think how can u resolve the CURRENT ISSUE
User :   and observe for some time
Doctor :   exactly
User :   will do.
Doctor :   And second issue is: stress makes performace poor
Doctor :   do not perform intercourse when u r over worked
Doctor :   cut down intercourse 2-3 /wekk
Doctor :   do it only when u sleep 8 hrs and relaxed at home
Doctor :   do not try failure attempts and do not feel inferior
Doctor :   Do u follow?
User :   we have intercourse 2-3 times a month
Doctor :   Even that one is problematic right!
User :   overwork is unavoidable.. i have a startup both of us
Doctor :   x Even when u do 2-3 /mo be cautioius, take rest
Doctor :   and relaex
Doctor :   I understand work is unavoidable
User :   ok
User :   thank you for your time.
Doctor :   The success of treatment for sexual problems depends on the underlying cause. The outlook is good for dysfunction that is related to a treatable or reversible physical condition. Mild dysfunction that is related to stress, fear, or anxiety often can be successfully treated with counseling, education, and improved communication between partners.
Doctor :   limit alcohol
