I'm a 43 year old male recently diagnosed with a prolactinoma. I'm on Dostinex and seem to be responding well--after 3 months, my prolactin and IGF-1 levels are in the normal range. However, the tumor seems to have messed up my testosterone levels. My endo put me on Testim for a few months, and I reacted pretty well--I felt steady, no great ups and downs like before but still not as virile as I would have liked to feel. However, I broke out in a terrible rash after two months on Testim. So now I'm on injections, and it's just a different ball game. I feel okay for about four or five days afterward, but then I really start to hit bottom. Major depression, no energy, a complete feeling of having no enthusiasm for anything. And I have to wait a whole week for another injection! I've been thinking about going on the patch but am concerned I would just end up allergic as with the gel. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any other suggestions?
