Default 3 months off sub

Hi All

I have been off sub now for 3 months, I was on it over 2 years just seeing if I should be free of withdrawal symptoms by now ? One of the main reasons I came off it was it was giving me low testosterone and didn't really want to go on trt. I am going to get a blood test this week and was wondering if anyone else had low testosterone level when on sub, if and how long after stopping sub it took return to normal.

I am still suffering from depression and fatigue and my sleep still not that great but they are symptoms of low testosterone as well

Thanks

Hi satnav, opiates in general can lower testosterone level:

I couldn't find anything about how long it would take after stopping opiates it took to return to normal though. I'm glad you're going to the doctor. Hopefully s/he will have answers for you. Keep us posted if you can.

Nancy
