      Stress or Acoustic trauma
      I see a lot of questions where people are being asked if SSRI's made T worse. But I like to know if there are people who used them or still use them and it did not change a thing for their T.
      I ask this because my doctor wants to describe lexapro for me and I find it hard to believe that everybody is getting T of SSRI's. That's why I wanted to put a question out that ask you if it did not change your T for the worse.

      Thank you
      Rico

      I was on Zoloft for about a year ten years ago. I don't think it affected my T.
