PSA down. Using in conjunction with Flomax. Sex drive is down to about zero which is a terrible side effect. Don't know what to do about that. Having vivid, detailed and bizarre dreams since I began taking the two together. Anyone else having this dream thing happening?

Comment:
Have been on Avodart for a little over four months. Have experienced loss of sex drive and an inability to achieve orgasm. Doesn't seem like the medication is improving my urinary symptoms. At my next doctor's visit, will be discussing with him discontinuing medication.

Comment:
I am 77 years old, active and in good physical condition. Avodart reduce PSA from0.7 to 0.3, with a great price. My body hair all disappeared, hair on head was thinning, exacerbated ED (PDE-% drugs were not always effective), total disappearance of semen. Have been off for three months, all conditions are improving.
