Oxycodone and other opioids can lower testosterone and estrogen levels.
This is true. And it’s more common than you’d think...especially in men.
People are often surprised to hear that chronic opioids can lead to low testosterone and estrogen...but opioids can decrease the release of testosterone and estrogen.
Hormone levels drop in up to 86% of chronic opioid users...and can lead to low libido, impotence, or irregular menses.
