I have been on prozac for probably four years now. I am now almost 26 y.o. I have not noticed a change in my libido since i was about 18(when i became sexually active). It has never been an astounding mojo, but I have enjoyed life, just the same.
Recently my doctor was made aware that I am a chronic marijuana smoker. She immediately wanted to run tests on my testosterone levels. the results came back and she said they were very low, that i was on the verge of irreversible damage.
My questions: Damage from what?? Could it be the marijuana?? (1.5 grams/day) Could it be the Prozac?? (60mg/day)
and WHAT OTHER factors could play into low testosterone?
p.s. I am aware that drug and alcohol use inhibits testosterone production. I used to be an abuser, but have not binge drank or used illicit drugs in over 18 months.
