Proscar, Sexual Side Effects, and Suggestions

It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will develop any sexual side effects while taking Proscar. Also, if a person does develop sexual side effects, such as impotence or a decrease in libido, it is difficult to know whether these problems are actually caused by another condition or Proscar itself.
 
However, if you develop any sexual side effects while taking Proscar, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. There is treatment that he or she may be able to recommend, such as an erectile dysfunction medication. Depending on how severe your sexual side effects are, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your Proscar dosage or try another medication.
