Posted Oct 01 2008 8:20pm
The mood swings associated with menopause in women apparently can affect aging men as well. Some reach a point in time, in fact, where not even Viagra can reverse several or all of the symptoms of reduced testosterone — depression, memory loss, increased irritability and erectile dysfunction among them — according to Jupiter urologist William Gans.
Is it male menopause? "That's something of a misnomer," said Gans. "It's really called ADAM." Gans is referring to Androgen Deficiency in the Adult Male, also known as andropause or male menopause. He will address the topic during a free Monday, Oct. 10 "Is There Male Menopause?" seminar at Jupiter Medical Center.
