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.
