Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I don't think I have completely recovered. When I started the medication, I almost immediately started noticing issues with difficulties urinating. I also noticed significant pressure in my prostate area. I have been off of the drug for 3 weeks now and still am noticing that I feel pressure down there as well as difficulty urinating. It has gotten much better, but 3 weeks out and I am getting scared of permanent damage.
