dean j. (2 years ago):

I have been taking Finasteride for 9 months for enlarged (massive) prostate. I have had great relief from the pressure, pain, and frequent trips to the bathroom. My prostate was so large that it became very uncomfortable to sit. Finasteride has helped to reduce the tissue mass to a once again comfortable level. My PSA was a 4.2, 3 months ago. I will be 66 years old November 2013. I live on the coast of South Carolina. The biggest side effect that I have noticed is a lack of sex drive and I do believe that the Finasteride has something to do with it. I take 10mg Cialis to help out.

Taking finesteride for 3 months - no noticeable improvements a this time plus significant negative impact of sex drive. Still bathroom visits through the night. I will stick with it for one or two more months given effectiveness is said to take several weeks or months. There must be a better way.
