So? I started going up and about that time--we're all adults!--I started having trouble masturbating. I am not sexually active, partially because of the epilepsy alas. And I have certain views, in theory at least. Like Dostoyevsky struggled with gambling, I have my own passions. Anyway the problem got better, but can it lower testosterone?

Carbamazepine can induce SHBG, which binds to testosterone. The more testosterone is bound to SHBG, the less is "free or bioavailable." It is the bioavailable amount that is important. Your total testosterone level may be be great, but if SHBG has it bound up and your bioavailable testosterone is therefore low, then you could notice some issues.

A google search will find you alot of info on this, but here is a link to study.
