Withdrawal: It is possible if you've been on prolonged testosterone replacement therapy that you body is no longer producing really any testosterone anymore. So you can be left in a worse of state than when you started. 227 is low but it also depends on where you started, length of treatment and levels during treatment. You can feel tired, weak and depressed if you stop treatment suddenly and levels drop.
