I am takeing both terazosin(hytrin) and finasteride I am finding 10mg of hytrin at night is no longer effective for 24 hrs and have had to increase frequency to about 16 hours. Are these drugs likely contributing to my ED problems
20 Feb 2011
Yes, common side effects of Finasteride include decreased libido (sex drive), erectile dysfunction (also known as impotence or ED), and decreased ejaculate volume.
ED has also been reported with Hytrin use but is far less common.
Talk with your doctor. He or she may be able to recommend treatment options, such as an erectile dysfunction medication. Depending on how severe your side effects are, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your dosage or try another medicine to treat your condition.
