I did have two side effects taking this drug for the last three years. I had a marked decrease in sexual desire and also significantly less semen durning ejaculation .I consider these two side effects very significant . The drug does work as far as hair growth .

this medication worked very well. I did not have any of the sexual side effects. Downside: the cost is about $65 a month and is not covered by insurance.
