Story:

Since coming to Dr. Sultan, I have had reduced anxiety and reduced depression. I hardly ever hear voices anymore. The doctor has helped me to fight Andropause (male menopause). The testosterone injections have really helped me to return to feeling normal again.  When I started seeing the doctor, I could barely sit still - my anxiety was so great. I now feel a whole lot better. This is something my psychiatrist was unable to fix. The medications he had me on were even undoubtedly part of the cause of my anxiety and Andropause. With the help of Dr. Sultan, I will try to get off the psych meds as soon as possible.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Remember, depression is not Prozac deficiency. You need to find physical cause. In his case it happened to be male hormonal deficiency. Male hormones are essential for both physical and mental well-being. Male hormonal deficiency is an important cause for depression, anxiety, poor memory, poor concentration, mental fatigue and mood swings etc.
