Hey Guys,
I'm about to start TRT. Wondering if anyone has experience with ambien during TRT. I've stopped the ambien preemptively and waiting to hear back from my doc about it. Any experience appreciated.
Thanks!!

There is an FDA study that was done (patient reported anecdotal evidence) of a decrease in Testosterone after 5-10yrs on Ambien.

The only problem with the results of the study is that the mean age reporting decreases was 60. Your testosterone from 55-60 would drop anyway so as they say: "Correlation does not imply causation"

Youre using exogenous testosterone so that itself will decrease natural testosterone production. So as long as the Ambien is well tolerated otherwise...it won't effect the outcome of TRT.

Thanks for the info! My only major sides from ambien is waking up in the middle of the night and slamming junkfood, not realizing it until I wake up in the morning with crumbs all over me and the bed.

He likes when you wake up in the back of his '87 Mustang with no pants on bro.
I’m used to it. Sometimes I’m not even knocked out. I just stay quiet and enjoy it.

I’m always “passing out” on my last set of heavy squats.....
