    Started taking after Flowmax was not very helpful. Still getting up 1 or 2 times a night (less than before however). The biggest problem is no practical erection and extremely difficult to reach orgasm if at all. Dribble of ejaculate if I ever do reach orgasm. Been taking Avodart 9 months, Flowmax 14 months. Still taking both. Must speak to my doctor about this as it is very frustrating.

    After two week use, sex drive noticeably down. I'm into my fourth week and can add erection and sensitivity problems. Urine flow a bit better but not worth the trade off. I may have taken my last pill last night. At the least, I'll take a few weeks off to see if sex issues improve.

    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?
