Review by Willi2:

Taken for about 10 years. Have gradually increased urinary urgency. Complete loss of semen with erectile dysfunction problems getting worse. Or is this old age? (89)

63 year old diagnosed with an enlarged prostate resulting in frequent urges to urinate. I've been taking this medication for 90 days and have not seen any improvement.

Taking finasteride 9 years for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, urinary issues improved about 50%. Total loss of erections; seminal ejaculate near zero; greatly reduced libido, though this may partly be due to age. This is ok, compared to my previous condition of frequent urinary incontinence, especially when on the road or when sleeping.

Proscar (finasteride): I have been on Proscar for 8 years now and can honestly say that I have maintained the density of hair from when I began taking the medicine.

Proscar (finasteride): Had problems immediately (Tiredness after 7-10 days) with Flomax and so doctor proscribed Proscar and it helped somewhat. However, It caused me to feel tired and occasionally extreme exhaustion. After about one year of use I became impotent even with Viagra. I quit it for about 6 weeks. Felt normal with no erectile dysfunction. Started again and felt tired and had ED. Quit for about 2 months again and felt OK. Started a third time with the same tiredness and ED problems. Have now stopped using it.

Took it for one week, brain fog was so thick I had to discontinue use. Side effects lasted for a couple of months after discontinuation.

Second medicine for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia. Flomax didn't work. This medicine helped a little bit after six months but the side effects were greater than the benefits. Experienced erectile dysfunction, semen reduction and impotence. Sex is good 3 weeks after quitting this medicine. Some hair growth associated with this medicine.
