Low libido: Can be from several etiologies. Some medications, mood or anxiety problems that coincide with fatigue; the lack of a morning erection, however, points to a testosterone problem as a stronger possibility. It's easy to have it checked so it's certainly worth it. White back if he needs testosterone, he may benefit as well from low dose arimidex (anastrozole). Good luck.
