Hi all. I live in the U.K. am 62 years of age and have been treated for BPH with Doxozasin and Finesteride, I have have the usual DRE and PSA checks over the years and no alarm bells have been flagged but the DRE confirms I have an enlarged prostate.
I have been on the Finesteride for over a year now and over the last 3 months my sex drive has dropped off dramatically and feel what I can only describe as desensitised down below. My flow is not great and I'm up a couple of times through the night. My doc, on the last visit says I am on the best combination ot drugs but I seem to despair at their lack of expertise and am sure if I go back and mention my decline, he will say it is a pay off to keep the prostate in check, another PSA check DRE.
I know things are advancing with procedures to treat BHP and hope I could delay things until a safe less evasive procedure was available. The word TURP puts the fear of God in me. My friend suffered after one a few years ago.
In anyone's opinion am I on the Finesteride for too long and could the doc give me an option. The Doxozasin was prescribed due to my high blood pressure and is a tablet that they say, if can be tolerated is ideal for my prostate also.
Any info. about good urologists, drugs or the way forward would be much appreciated from you guys, and all the best!
