As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Proscar. However, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. If side effects do occur, they are often minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
The most common side effects include:
- Erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence (see Proscar Sexual Side Effects)
- Decreased libido (decreased sex drive)
- Decreased ejaculate amount
- Breast enlargement.
