If you are currently taking Finasteride I would be grateful if you would share with me the following information:-
1) How long have you been taking this drug?
2)How long was it before you noticed any beneficial effect?
3) Do you suffer with retrograde ejaculation?
4) Do you take this drug in conjuction with any other drug for BPH, i.e Tamsulosin?
I ask these questions as I have been on Tamsulosin for about 2 years and Finasteride for five months.
When I first started with Tamsulosin I found some, almost, immediate relief with a better flow rate. But then, about five months ago, I had another episode of not being able to pass urine for a couple of hours, which thankfully passed. That's when I was put on Finasteride also.
With the Tamsulosin alone I had normal ejaculations but about 2 weeks after starting the Finasteride it all went haywire with totally dry orgasms. Very odd the first time it happens as I am sure you will agree.
So, I have been on Finasteride for five months now, how long, in your experience, does it take for them to shrink the prostate, as they are supposed to?
Is there anyone on here who has had total success with this drug? i.e. the easing/disappearance of all symptoms and if so how long did you persevere with it for?
Thanks for your time.
