Taking for slightly over one month. Some improvement in urination. Some loss of sex drive as well. I had major stomach pains and bad headaches for about a week when I first started. I'll stay on avodart a while longer.

Comment:
with 6 months of treatment this has cut psa by over half. I'm taking this in conjunction with flomax and the reduction in sex drive and erectile problems are tough to deal with. But overall the problems with urination have disappeared. A tough trade off.
