My symptoms are fatigue, very low sex drive, lack of interest in life. Quick background, have been suffering from dizziness / brain fog for years had all the tests done and nothing significant found. Due to the constant strain on my life trying to cope I was put on an anti-depressant per my Neuro's recommendation. During a recent check up I told my MD that I had no sex drive so he ordered a testosterone test. This came out at 202. Went to Endocrinologists office and had another one done this time it was around 280. While there he discovered my thyroid was under active and I'm now also on Synthroid. I recently called my Endocrinologist office and said the libido is worse than ever, so I'm awaiting my third test. Could the anti-depressant lower the total T readings? I know it can cause lower sex drive.

You have Low T. Join the club. The Anti-Depressants are worthless and probably making you feel worse. I'd stop taking them, and throw them away.

You need to raise your T in order to feel "Normal". But first you need to find out WHY your T is low. When you get your results, make sure you get your LH level. Post all the results here.
