    Started at 1 mg but reduced dose to .5 mg due to having testicle pain. The reduced dose has no side effects for me. Libido has never been a problem. I take for a receding hairline and started noticing small results at 10 months.

Plus I was getting older and thought that could be a factor. Then one day I was mortified to find I could not maintain an erection or orgasm during intercourse with an exciting and much younger girlfriend. I stopped taking the drug ... Show Full Comment
