Had very large prostate for my age. Desire to urinate 3 to 4 times a night. Hard to drive home from work without stopping at rest area to urinate. I've been taking Avodart for 12 months as of now. I sleep through the night without getting up. No problem driving home. Flow of urine is much better. Side effects: I've had trouble with sexual desire. I can still get it up but ejaculate is minimal. Use...

Taken Avodart for 7 years. Told only other option was surgery. Worked for awhile, now getting up 4-5 times per night. Penis fully retracted - have to sit down to pee. No semen on very rare occasion of ejaculation. No erection without Viagra. Dizzy a lot of the time. Tired, sleepy everyday. Stopping med and having Uro-lift. Had to have a catheter one time. Most painful thing I have ever felt. Could not get it through my prostate. Don't want surgery or Uro-lift, but what other option do I have? Must change something. Can't live like this any longer.

After prolonged use caused severe heart arrhythmia and complete loss of smell and taste. May have caused permanent nerve damage. After a year off Avodart, taste and smell has returned and the arrhythmia has subsided. The benefits DID NOT WARRANT THE MANY SIDE EFFECTS! BEWARE!!

My doctor said my prostate was a 3.5 out of 5 with 5 being the largest. After taking Avodart it has dropped to about 1.5. So has worked good that way. I did see a drop in sperm fluid and it turned to a clear liquid. What I did is a little research and discovered that if a Man takes some Progesterone it helps you from going sterile. I use a product called Balanced Male. Also a herb called Shatavari has helped a lot with erectile dysfunction. It also increases the fluid. I use a product from "The Raw Food World" called "Raw Wildcrafted Shatavari Extract. Do your own research and find what works for you.
