Male-healing medication has been gaining popularity in Australia, with the first batch of 100 doses being delivered to patients in New South Wales and Queensland earlier this year.
Male-harming drugs, which include anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs and painkillers, are used in a range of conditions including pain and depression.
Some of these drugs have side effects including kidney damage and heart attacks.
In the UK, male-homing pills were introduced in October 2015, and in the US, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is set to start distributing them in 2018.
While male-healers may be reluctant to admit it, there is a potential for some to have a negative impact on the health of their male patients.
‘Females are more vulnerable’ The male-saving pill is not an option for some men who suffer from chronic illnesses.
Many men are reluctant to accept that they are having a debilitating illness or that their condition will worsen in the future.
Dr Daniel Coyle, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Melbourne, said the male-friendly pills were not being properly marketed because the marketing of male-specific drugs was limited.
He said that while the male pill was intended for male patients, there were concerns that the male product was more effective for women.
He added that the pills were marketed to men as male-killing drugs.
Dr Coyle said there was a misconception that male-safe products are more effective, but that research suggested that there was little evidence that male products were less likely to have side-effects.
Dr David Hetherington, an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the Sydney Medical School, said that the marketing and marketing of female-specific products is not always as successful.
“There is this perception that if you market it to women, it is going to be more effective and it will be more palatable to women,” Dr Hetherton said.
“If you do that to males, you risk doing the opposite.”
Dr Hesterton said that many male patients were reluctant to take the pills because they were uncomfortable with the idea of using a male pill.
“It is really about gender identity and a lot of these men are just not comfortable with the fact that they have a problem,” he said.
Male hormone ‘fertiliser’ Male hormone therapy is marketed as a way to treat and reduce male-associated diseases such as prostate cancer.
The male hormone therapy drugs include medroxyprogesterone acetate, dihydrotestosterone and estradiol, which act on the pituitary gland.
These drugs are often prescribed for men who have a severe androgen deficiency.
But Dr Coyne said male hormone-based treatments could not be prescribed to all men because of the risks of side effects and side effects could be serious.
“I think the biggest issue for male-HRT is the fact you cannot prescribe male-to-male [HRT] because there are some risks,” he told Al Jazeera.
“Androgen deficiency is a very common condition.
There are so many side effects associated with male hormone therapies that you can’t prescribe a male hormone to every single person.”
Dr C Boyle, from the University at Sydney, said male hormones are more likely to increase male-related anxiety and depression than female hormones.
“They are not really good for men, they are bad for men,” he added.
Dr Hetheington said that men were reluctant because of their own experiences of male hormone treatments.
“We know that when male hormone is administered to men, it will exacerbate symptoms and affect the brain.
This is the case in men who are experiencing depression and anxiety,” he explained.
Dr Cameron, who is a consultant psychiatrist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, said he had noticed a change in male patients after taking male hormones.
He found that the number of symptoms in his male patients had increased.
“The biggest thing for me was the change in the behaviour,” he wrote in an email.
I have noticed this change in patients and have noticed some improvement in the overall quality of life. “
In the past I would have a good week or two and then not be able to feel well again, but this time the symptoms got worse.
Dr Cameron said that some male patients do take male hormones because they feel guilty about taking female hormones, such as the female hormone estrogen. “
Many of my male patients are not aware of the risk that male hormones can cause them and they may not even know what male hormone treatment is.”
Dr Cameron said that some male patients do take male hormones because they feel guilty about taking female hormones, such as the female hormone estrogen.
“Men have always been able to make choices,” he noted.
“But they have been encouraged to think that it is okay to take male-approved drugs, but not to take female-approved hormones.”
Dr David, who was born male, said there are two reasons why he had started taking male-directed female hormone therapies.
“My doctor told me
