According to Dr. Steve Nissen, chair of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, if you're taking a medication for Low T to ward off the effects of aging - such as decreased libido or fatigue - you should stop taking testosterone now. According to Dr. Nissen there are real concerns about whether testosterone treatments for Low T are safe. These concerns recently led an FDA advisory committee to recommend restricting Low T medication.
Dr. Nissen's recommendation is simple: If you are not taking Low T medications, don't start. And, if you are, stop now.
Dr. Nissen's advice is based on the fact that continuing the medication could lead to unknown or catastrophic side ffects. Currently there is no long-term research to guide physicians as to the safety or efficacy of testosterone in treating Low T.
