Started 5mg finasteride for BPH couple years ago. I was miserable...2-3 bathroom trips nightly, discomfort in testicles (like I'd been kicked) and worst of all, blood in ejaculate that turned it brown. The latter thoroughly disgusted my wife and me. Took a few months to kick in, but now bathroom trips are 1-2, discomfort and blood are gone. Hooray! Downside is same as others have mentioned.....ge...

Being a 49 yr. old male with thinning hair I decided to try 1mg of finasteride daily. After the 2nd month I started feeling anxious and a little down. I had a upset stomach and my libido was decreasing. I was starting to see some new growth at 3 months but I was seriously getting depressed and feeling very tired. I wanted to be one of the lucky guys who didn't get side effects and had/kept an open mind. I think my hair was filling in at crown area, so I do believe this drug is good for growing hair and keeping what you have. Just be careful and monitor your mood and sexual side effects. I am very disappointed I cant tolerate this medication because it seemed to grow hair well.

I was prescribed this drug 5-7 years ago for enlarged prostrate. Noticed a decline in sexual drive, ejactulation and no noticeable ease of urination effort. Was then put on Tamosulin and had some improvement. Recent checkup doc prescribed Finasteride again to reduce prostrate along with remaining on Tamosulin. Now straining to urinate more....canâ??t figure what is going on. Samples of Cialis worked best but insurance wonâ??t cover...wonder if I can promise not to use it for sex?ð???
