SHBB 22.1 total, Testosterone 305. Would you recommend therapy? Is clomid a good option for preserving fertility? 29 yo
Yes, however...: You want to determine the underlying cause(s).

Should i go to therapy, or counseling sessions for my OCD of skin picking while using celexa (citalopram) for treatment.
Definitely!: First, ssri's like Celexa (citalopram) haven't usually offered much benefit in treating hair-pulling ( trichotillomania) or skin-picking (dermatotillomania), which we view as impulse control disorders. Ongoing cognitive- behavioral therapy is probably a more effective treatment than medication, although there is nothing wrong with using both at once. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The scientific papers lend little support for supplements beyond creatine & protein powder. Hope you avoid steroids. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm really trying to lose weight. I've been dieting good for about a week. Would running help slim down, fast?
Lifestyle: Hi. Healthy lifestyle should be life-long (ergo, the "life" in lifestyle). One week of eating right does't make up for a lifetime of unhealthy average American diet. Eat a healthy diet for life, and exercise regularly for life. Running is great for you, but data are mixed on effects on weight loss. But still, if you're just starting a healthy lifestyle, over time you probably will lose weight. ...Read more

Using Finasteride shouldn't effect your energy level or muscle mass, however there are reports that it can effect your libido. ...Read more
