    How was your appointment with Dr. Michelson?

    Sep 06, 2022
    I have been a patient of Dr. Michelson's since 2015, when I moved to OC. At the time I was taking 275mg of venlafaxine and 150mg of bupropion. Back then, I thought I would never be able to get off antidepressants, but I wanted to explore the possibility of getting off them. Dr. Michaelson was always open to looking at that possibility and finding the reasons that were causing my depression. In 2018, he told me that my depression could be accentuated by low testosterone, and he was right. You, as a patient, have to do a lot on your own to heal yourself, like improve your diet, take therapy, exercise, and meditate. I understand that there must be cases different from mine, but I can say that Dr. Micahelson is open to you seeking to be free of depression and medication. By the end of August 2022, all I'm taking is daily vitamin D and injecting 0.03ml of testosterone per week.
