I have gone back on finasteride. My first go was 1.25 ED and after three weeks I got erectile dysfunction and numb penis. This time, I switched to 0.25mg EOD and again got side effects after 22 days but they disappeared about 13 days later. Now, i am about 7 weeks in and I have gotten erectile dysfunction again and it has persisted for 3 days. Is it normal to get sides and have them go away, then come back again? Do you think I should keep taking finasteride and see if the side effects go away? I know once I stop the side effects go away. I really want stay in finasteride but im afraid to have an erection that is only 70% full.
Sounds like you are not a candidate for this drug. Taking it long term increases the risk of it becoming a permanent side effect
