I recently had my testosterone level checked due to being tired all the time and just general blah approach toward life. My total came back at 360, with free at 7. I’m only 33 years old, so that number seemed insanely low for me. But my doctor says that I’m within “normal range”. Yeah, normal range for a 70 year old man, perhaps. He said my prolactin level was normal, not sure if he checked my estradiol. His recommendation was to put me on high-dose Vitamin D-3 at 5000UI per day for 3 months, then recheck my t-level. I’ve been on the high-dose vitamin D-3 for about a month now and can’t say that I feel a huge difference, maybe a little.

An orexigenic , or appetite stimulant , is a drug , hormone , or compound that increases appetite . This can be a naturally occurring neuropeptide hormone such as ghrelin , orexin or neuropeptide Y ,   or a medication which increases hunger and therefore enhances food consumption . Usually appetite enhancement is considered an undesirable side effect of certain drugs as it leads to unwanted weight gain ,    but sometimes it can be beneficial and a drug may be prescribed solely for this purpose, especially when the patient is suffering from severe appetite loss or muscle wasting due to cystic fibrosis , anorexia , old age , cancer or AIDS .      There are several widely used drugs which can cause a boost in appetite, including tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), tetracyclic antidepressants , natural or synthetic cannabinoids , first-generation antihistamines , most antipsychotics and many steroid hormones .
