Proscar & Sex Drive

Hi,

This is a serious post, I have read that a side effect of taking proscar is that the sex drive of an individual whom takes it may decrease. However, I was wondering if anyone out there using the drug has had the opposite effect?? As I €™ve been taking the drug for five months and have noticed a considerable increase in my sex drive. Furthermore, it is not my imagination as my girlfriend has noticed it too. Happy New Year to everyone.

Thanks

Shang

Hi Shang

I can honestly say that my sex drive has not been affected one bit by taking Prosar,dont know if it has increased but it definately has not decreased.

You may be a lucky responder,grow loads of hair and be rampant for your other half.

I will say that I did not experience any side effects from taking Proscar.... and have been taking for a year now..

As to the stopping hairloss and possible regrowth... for myself I would have to say that I have had some good results..

Does anyone know if the side effects can be delayed.... ie can Proscar start to effect you if taken for long periods ?

Also... I do believe (and have read) that a high percentage of guys would sacrifice a drop in sex drive to keep their hair...

I've been on Proscar since 1998 and haven't noticed any negatives. I'm only taking a quarter pill (of a 5mg pill) daily and that's been just fine for me.

I have a lot of faith in Finasteride (Proscar) to keep what I have (or at least really slow down the loss). I've now added in the Rogaine foam/liquid on the suggestion of Janna from SMG as they've seen some good results - so it's worth a try.

My only regret is that I didn't know about Finasteride a few years earlier as it would have saved me a lot of heartache.

If you're getting an extra boost then good for you - so long as your dosage isn't too high - it might also be the reduced stress in knowing you're on a drug which will help you...

Uncle Plugs,



I €™m only taking 1mg daily, luckily I haven €™t had a sore nut or any other side effects apart from being like a porn star. Can €™t believe you haven €™t been to Alton Towers since 1992, what was there then a Farris wheel and so on I imagine. Timuk, I have read from posters on other forums that the side effects can be delayed somewhat, I also read a number of posts the other day which vexed me somewhat as one poster was taking 7mg a day, yes 7mg a day which seems a bit psycho and a number of women said they were taking proscar too?



Thanks



Shang

I too have been taking fin/pro for over a year now with no sexual side effects other than watery semen for the first month which returned to normal soon after. I take half a 5mg tab every other day

Shang you lucky bastard. Unfortunately I am one of those that has experienced the sides of less sex drive. I started to take it 2-3 times a week instead and no sides. I believe that it has lessened my hairloss but not necessarily grown any hair.

Retaining what you have - slowing down further hair loss is a big factor. Through trial and error, there seems to be various dosages that work for different people.

And I reitarate the earlier comment by NN, Shang you lucky bastard lol... ¬b`

Fin is usually feared for decreasing it (I haven't tried it - mainly for that reason lol - so I wouldn't know lol);;D

I've been on Proscar since 2002 and the only side affect I've noticed is my hair stopped falling out.

Hi Sparky

Welcome to the forum.

Good to hear that Fin is having a positive effect on you with no sides.

I think that what Janna stated above is pretty accurate. The stuff does work. Some have sides and some don't but if you play with the dosage (in a safe manner) you may find a trick that works for you.
