    I have been on Jalyn (Flowmax and Avodart). I have loss of energy, smaller penis, reduced sex drive, no semen, breast enlargement. My prostate has not shrunk and my urinary symptoms are getting worse. I now have to straight cath myself four times a day and I am only 53!. I am not sure what I am going to do but this drug is trouble stay away unless yo have no choice.
