Quite often, men suffering from symptoms of andropause are often treated for a specific, sometimes related, medical condition only. For instance, an andropausal man may be diagnosed with depression and given an antidepressant, rather than the doctor truly discerning the origin of the depression. With today's rampant prescribing of antidepressants to people who are not otherwise happy and content 100% of the time, this problem continues to be compounded (not to mention that antidepressants exaggerate loss of libido). Physicians may not see the entire pattern; but a holistic approach to the patient's entire symptomatology may include treatment with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), botanical medicines, nutrition, and exercise. Therapy is primarily focused on supporting and balancing hormone levels in the body.
