Also known as "priapism" and how common is this side effect?
Common (1% to 10%): Decreased libido, delayed urine flow, early menses
Frequency not reported: Hematuria, impotence, increased libido, increased urinary frequency, missed periods, retrograde ejaculation
Postmarketing reports: Breast enlargement or engorgement, clitorism, lactation, PRIAPISM, urinary incontinence, urinary retention**
This side effect was not seen in clinical trials of the original brand names but has been reported anecdotally by users after the drug was marketed. The actual incidence is unknown.
My doctor mentioned it to me when I started, maybe a month ago, but so far I haven’t experienced it or had any other sexual side effects. I’m at 200mg.
