Seeing signs of ED after starting 5% minoxidil a few days ago. I also take 2.5 mg of proscar daily for 1 yr. How do I fix ED?
In my opinion you are not likely to continue any medication that you feel is causing unwanted side effects. 1.25mg of proscar should be sufficient to do the job of decreasing hair loss from androgenic alopecia, unless you are a larger than average person. Get back with your transplant surgeon and discuss this matter further. You should be able to feel comfortable about your treatment plan to decrease future hair loss.
Dose of Finasteride is Incorrect
Speak with your doctor. It takes 8 months to see changes with finasteride so you probably did not wait long enough. ED cannot be diagnosed by a couple of poor functioning days. Discuss all with your doctor.
Proscar and ED
Proscar is finasteride and if you are taking a half a pil (2.5 mgs) that is a very high dose and probably increases the risk of ED. Speak with your doctor about reducing the dose
