Can AndroGel mess with a man's memory?


Effects of testosterone: growth and function of prostate, sperm maturing, libido and sexual potency, masculine sexual behaviour, secondary gender characteristics (secondary= as in not genitalia), anabolic effects (muscle mass), bone mass, epiphyseal closure (ends the length growth, -so you can basically give tall boys testosterone so they stop growing taller), stimulates the blood cell production and sebaceous gland activity (sebum secretion).

Side effects of testosterone: thromboembolism (Apoplex, heart attack), dyslipidaemia, gynecomastia (man-boobs, because estrogen is made out of testosterone), depression, aggression, alopecia (losing the headhair on top), more hair on the rest of the body, steroid-acne, balls shrink and less sperm production, liver-diseases, stimulation of androgen-dependent tumores (prostata-carcinoma)

I don't think I know of any effects it has on the memory, but it definetly has effects on mood. Men and women can suffer from depression in their Climacterium (=lack of sexual hormones due to age).
