For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia “I started taking Proscar when it was a blind study. It has reduced my prostate to the size of a teenager’s prostate. I still take it, but am now using the generic (Finasteride). The only side effect that I have had is slight breast tenderness and swelling (not cancerous as it has been that way for almost a year) also my bald spot all but disappeared.”

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia “I have been on Proscar for 8 years now and can honestly say that I have maintained the density of hair from when I began taking the medicine.”

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia “Had problems immediately (Tiredness after 7-10 days) with Flomax and so doctor proscribed Proscar and it helped somewhat. However, It caused me to feel tired and occasionally extreme exhaustion. After about one year of use I became impotent even with Viagra. I quit it for about 6 weeks. Felt normal with no erectile dysfunction. Started again and felt tired and had ED. Quit for about 2 months again and felt OK. Started a third time with the same tiredness and ED problems. Have now stopped using it.”
