Growing evidence supports the notion that Late-onset Dysthymic disorder in middle aged men may be associated with age-related HPG hypofunctioning. In this study we seek to examine the efficacy of Testosterone replacement for this condition.
Testosterone replacement will be more effective than placebo, in treating men with late onset Dysthymic Disorder and hypo-gonadism.
