Hi,

I've gotten Testicular atrophy, resulting in Erectile Dis-function, Decreased libido, And Long-term Muscle-wastage And Brittle bones .. It comes from Prolactin shutting down the Testicles x x

Has Any-body else gotten Prolactin-related Side-effects, From their Drugs ??

I'm on Clozapine ( Leponex ). I Complained it also Raised Prolactin, Which causes The Testicular atrophy, but my Doctor used a Shitty source, Written by the Pharmaceutical Industry, Which said Clozapine Doesn't Raise prolactin .. I Was kept In the Mental Hospital, for a year, Bec. I complained ..

I Contacted Danish Medicines Agency, Same as FDA, In Denmark - - They said Clozapine actually can Raise Prolactin, but not as much, as the Other drugs x x I need help, my Doctor says Testicular atrophy is a very rare Side-effect, but I Don't think so, It fees like it Happens Fairly fast, Does any-body know Any-thing x x

Aren't you entitled to a second opinion from another doctor. Surely they didn't keep you in a year just because you complained. Punching docs never goes down well does it?

I am sorry you are suffering from this.

I complained Clozapine affected my Prolactin . . My Doctor said that wasn't a known Side-effect .. I Said it did, not as much as the other drugs, but, it still did it . . He used an inferior Source, called Pro.medicin.dk .. It Didn't mention Prolactin .. So, he said I was Psychotic, since the Drug Listing didn't Mention Increased Prolactin (Hyper-Prolactinemia) .. But, the better list, which he didn't check, on Danish FDA (called, Danish Medicines agency), it say that it actually does . . After I had kicked them out of my apartment, the Police came x x I hadn't Punched any-one, but then I saw my Doctor, I Complained and, I Pushed him, so he fell . . . A Woman was also there, she had given me Antipsychotics ( for mania, and stress ) for years, I Had told her about these Side-effects, for years, she had just said, You're Psychotic, And increased my dosage . . I Yelled at her, and told her I never wanted to see her, again, but she kept coming back, as a Substitute worker, when she had done that, I Ended up punching her, once, Medium-hard, At that's Why I Got a Court-enforced Requirement, For treatment x x The Story is a bit more Complicated, but in the Week after I read, Prolactin Causes " Small gonads ", Testicles, I Was in Chok, I Thought the had killed me, No Family, No life, No future - - I Got so Mad, And depressed, I Punched a Person who had Given me these Drugs, an Assistant to the Nurses, Once, On the Head, I Only pushed, My doctor, And ripped his Shirt, A little Bit, At the Shoulder - - He called that " Assault ", and I got 5 Years of Court-Mandated Psychiatric Sentencing, For it x x

I Encluded some, Sources, They all Say Prolactin causes Hypogonadism, which leads to Testicular atrophy, if it last a Prolonged PERIOD, Like me, Five - Ten Years Of drugging, With antipsychotics x x

Get a Lawyer, And ask for hCG Treatment, Here's an article where Testicles increase, From 4 mL , To almost 15 mL, after 24 Months, of hCG Treatment x x There's another Drug, hMG, which Makes it even Better x x

There is a Cure, Talk to your Doctors, are the side-effects Worth it, Ask them, About hCG And, hMG Therapy, If they Don't know about, Call a Specialist ( A Urologist Or, Andrologist ); They can Help, Even more x x x

I have also had atrophy; It goes away upon discontinuation of drug

Hi,

I've gotten Testicular atrophy, resulting in Erectile Dis-function, Decreased libido, And Long-term Muscle-wastage And Brittle bones .. It comes from Prolactin shutting down the Testicles x x

Has Any-body else gotten Prolactin-related Side-effects, From their Drugs ??

Long term antipsychotic use has caused me testicular shrinkage also.
It goes away, upon discontuation of the antipsychotic if that is an option for you. For me, it is forced, against my will. I am taking something that is killing my drive, blunting my affect, suppressing my emotions, cause sexual dysfunction (loss of libido). Dopamine blocking agents cause prolactin release and lower testosterone levels. Dopamine is the reward neurotransmitter. That is why they are unpleasant to take in addition to severe adverse effects including diabetes melitus, low testosterone, intellectual impairment, lack of motivation, drive initiative, and preoccupation.

Mechanism

Hi,

Normally Dopamine keeps Prolactin low, it suppresses it, but the Drugs block Dopamine-receptors, so Prolactin increases, after-ward . .

The Precise Mechanism is, according to books :

Prolactin Lowers GnRH ( Gonadotropin-Realeasing Hormone )

Low GnRH -- > Low LH ( Luteinizing hormone ) And Low FSH ( Follicle-Stimulating hormone )

Having Low LH + FSH is Called " Hypogonadotropism "

Low LH + Low FSH -- > Testicular atrophy + Low Testosterone x x

I've Included some Pictures, That prove this, They Can be Printed out, And Shown, To the Doctor >>

I'm also Being forced to Take, the Drugs, but at Least With these Sources, I Can Prove I'm not Psychotic, When I Complain x x Maybe there are Better drugs x x

Maudsley's Prescribing Guidelines for Psychiatry says A little Abilify-drug 3 - 6 mg, can lower it and also, something called Peony-licorice concoction, Chinese herbs product, Can lower it x xx

The Best thing is to Contact a Doctor, Tell him about it, Show him the Pictures ( move them to an iPad, or Tablet ), and if he doesn't care, which mine never did, get a lawyer, in Denmark one can Complain about a doctor, to a special Psychiatrists Complaint board, I don't know what it's called, in other countries . .

I Have almost All those Side-effects, Too x x I Hated them, It feels like being Dead, in-side x

Prolactin inhibits Testosterone, by decreasing the Hormones ( Gonadotropins ) that causes it ( Test. ), to Be HIGH x x
