User for 24 months. PSA went down from 10.11 to 1.75. Prostate much smaller. Do have prostate stones. Semen flow reduced but functional. Erections need Viagara. Urination problems cured about 90%. Would recommend use.

I can finally sleep through most of the night. I have more energy each day, and I don't plan my travels based on bathrooms.

Although Avodart reduced the frequency of my urination, it also decreased my libido severely and virtually prevented me from having an erection. I discontinued the drug after speaking to my physician, however, at 6 weeks later, the side effects still persist!

Using product for 30 months, some improvement in urinating after 6 months. No noticeable change since, reduction in sex drive, semen, and lack of interest in sex. I have discontinued product as of this date.

Started taking after Flowmax was not very helpful. Still getting up 1 or 2 times a night (less than before however). The biggest problem is no practical erection and extremely difficult to reach orgasm if at all. Dribble of ejaculate if I ever do reach orgasm. Been taking Avodart 9 months, Flowmax 14 months. Still taking both. Must speak to my doctor about this as it is very frustrating.

Have been on Avodart for a little over four months. Have experienced loss of sex drive and an inability to achieve orgasm. Doesn't seem like the medication is improving my urinary symptoms. At my next doctor's visit, will be discussing with him discontinuing medication.

Comment from: Bob L, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: May 12

Complete loss of sex drive, erectile problems, reduced semen quantity, enlarged brests, growing a lot of hair back on my bald head, reduced PSA from 5 to 2.5 in 24 months, did not help urination frequency at night much. Will as doctor if I can stop use for a while to see what happens to these side effects.

Comment from: 65-74 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: December 11

Been taking med for about 3 yrs. Took about 3 months to notice results, so it's slow acting. Lowered psa from 10 to 4. Urination much better, but loss of sex drive bothering. Also started dribbling urine at night when I didn't wake up to go. Stopped taking med about two months ago and leaking has stopped. Will not take again until I see my Urinologist in three months.

Comment from: JoeFSO, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: October 10

Have been using Avodart for approx. 8 months. Swelling breasts, loss of sex drive, loss of hardness, with no ejacation. But using Cialis for that problem. But my running to to the toilet has decreased, when I do go I do urinate freely. Still getting up twice a night to urinate. Which is down from 5 to 7 times of false alerts. Question I have is Adovart a Testosterone blocker?

Taking this medication as well as Flomax. Don't know which one is helping, maybe the combination, but PSA is down and urination BPH symptoms are vastly improved. All this in only two months.
