Been taking these two drugs for some time. I am 79 and don't have any problems with the prostate as far as I know and often feel I no longer need to continue to take these drugs which must have side effects. Some years back I had all the usual tests and psa was up a bit to 6.5 and the urologist put me on these two drugs. They shrink the prostate, and I think mine is very reduced now. My last psa test a couple of years ago set it at 3 little or no semen is produced from sex! During the day I can do for hours without a need for a pee but at night I am usually up at 3am in the morning to the toilet. I have a good stream and no urgency otherwise. Are there men of my age who survive without these drugs?
