Comment from: xkop, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: March 22

I've been using Avodart for almost 7 months and although it has worked well -- I'm considering discontinuance of it owing to side effects. The usual side effects with erection and ejaculation are present and I can deal with them. However, breast-enlargement developed with sensitivity; itchy rash on face and fluid retention presented as well. Stopped taking drug today and will speak with doctor about alternative therapy. Can't deal with side effects. I write my experience with Avodart to inform prospective users of possible consequences. I hope discontinuance reverses adverse effects.

Comment from: Grandfather, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: October 30

I really began to notice the positive change after 18 months of usage. I am now at the 24 month usage stage and am extremely pleased with the results. While I am not like I was 30 years ago, I am still getting better and better

Comment from: Unhappy, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: September 23

I'm 63 years old. Doctor added this to Flomax for urination problems and to control high PSA 6 months ago. PSA has been reduced, urination problems are gone, but I have lost all sex drive, can barely achieve erection (and can't maintain it when I do), no semen upon ejaculation, some increase in breast size, penis has shrunk and I have gained weight. I am going back to the doctor next week and will tell him I am discontinuing this drug.
