I hope your son is replenishing his testosterone either orally or by injection.....this can be taken care of very easily. It sounds like these two episodes has increased his anxiety level with an obecession about dying. Your son needs to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation and medication. It is often trial and error with these types of medications, and sometimes we have to try a few before we find the one that works best for us. Once we find the right one, it is well worth it! He should never just stop a medication cold turkey, due to withdrawal. The first couple of weeks is an adjustment period for these types of medications, and if he has any side effects he should call his doctor right away so he can tell him what to do. It takes 4-6 weeks for the medication to even reach full a therapeutic level in our system for us to feel better. I think he would benefit from therapy as well. He can learn how not to obcess about dying and how to just relax. His anxiety has a root cause and I think therapy would be very beneficial. Therapy can be a lengthy process and his doctor may feel that he needs medication until this is all resolved at which point his doctor will "wean" him off the meds. He needs to give the medications a second chance, while working closely with a psychiatrist as they are most knowledgable when it comes to these types of medications. We all wish we could beat our anxiety/depression without medication, but rarely can one do this. But with your son, you know what caused his and may very well be able to reverse it with therapy. But if not, he has to view it like any other medical condition requiring daily medication to control the symptoms. Medication can give him his life back, and peace, with the ability to live a normal, anxiety free life. Have him go back to the psychaitrist and make sure he works very closely with him while on medication, the doctor wants and needs to know if your son is having any problems with the medication and relies on your son to keep him informed. There's a medication that will help him, he just needs to stay the course and keep fighting. I'm sorry for all he and you have endured, and you're so lucky to still have him. I hope this helps, and wish you both all the best.
