stopping and restarting Avodart
GlovePro posted:
Avodart is an rx for shrinking the prostrate. The main side effects are lessening of sex drive, inability to maintain an erection and reduction of semen. I can obtain an erection, but, not near as erect as it should be. Then, I can not finish the performance and am left with being unsatisfied. Question: Can I discontinue taking Avodart once a month for let's say four days and on the fourth day have normal sex and then continue taking Avodart? Will I have a better erection and be able to finish the act? I can not see any problem with being off the pill for a few days since it isn't like taking heart medication. If the answer is yes, could discontinuing for just two days or even one day work? Thanks, Bill

This is a question you need to ask the prescribing doctor and your pharmacist if you have a good relationship with one who actually talks to his patients. Take care, Annette
