These side effects would be very unlikely to be caused by Tramadol. Previous posters are correct that there are many ED drugs that would be helpful here. Also, you may want to have your physician check your testosterone levels as well. Finasteride works by blocking DHT which is what causes both BPH and hair loss as well in men. An unfortunate side effect is that it can reduce the amount of free testosterone in your system as well. If you are taking this for hair loss and NOT BPH, you may want to ask your physician about adding testosterone to your regimen which will fix your libido problem IF your testosterone levels are indeed low for a man your age. New T level ranges were recently put out so previous test results which might have shown your T levels to be within range at that time may merit review. Talk to your physician. Hope you find this helpful and good luck to you.
    Thanks @H20shed65 . That's good info. Funny thing is I just saw my GP the other day for the first time in 1.5 yrs. I asked him to order up a T test. I've been tired and not myself for a while and taking proscar. I had about 7 mins with the doc so could not get into everything but had an odd feeling I should get tested. This sort of confirms my concerns.

    @COSGringo

    Good deal! There are many, many factors that influence what is the "appropriate"amount of what is referred to as "free" testosterone in the average adult male and depending on the Lab your physician uses (Quest,LabCorp,etc) the reference range will vary a bit as well. Generally speaking FreeTestosterone I an otherwise healthy Adult Male should be in the range of 300-1197 ng/dl with Optimal being between over 500 ng/dl . But again, age, general health,current medications and a whole host of health issues can influence this number.

    But always prudent to have your GP run this panel as part of an Annual Physical or if you are experiencing symptoms of low testosterone levels which can be very broad and non specific.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks, yes he was testing me for everything else so I figured another flavor. I don't hike, bike, or do anything fun lately. Just waste time working and on this forum.

    Good to get the #'s from a doc like yourself.

    The nurses sometimes know more. I know they work harder. I was a nutrition director ages ago at a long term care facility and man those nurses had it tough. I respected almost of all them, it's hard work. I don't know how people are CNA's at those places. They were good to me also. Some were too good but I kept that on the down low.

    Well thankfully your side effects arent as serious as some ive heard even of people i kniow. The Dr said dont worry about it, and they have been struggling with issues for years. Hopefully it stays that way for you, good luck!

    Actually more nurses than CNA's. Not sure why I said that. The nurses were generally hotter. Hey I was young, smart, dressed well, and there weren't many guys at that place. Met my wife there!

    Go to pubmed.com and or search out finasteride side effects. There is a lot of information on the national library of medicine, from
    unbiased sources. I have commented earlier on this thread. I was married formerly for decades to a RN and a Case Mgr. Currently,
    divorced. Sex life? The semen fluid becomes more clear, like 90% clear, from the traditional color, and the prostate in males in
    general shrinks about 25% to 30%, as does the fluid extracted during normal sexual intercourse. I was in my middle 40's during
    male pattern baldness operation number one, and age 49 during, male pattern baldness, operation no 2. Now past age 60, I still have
    90% a full head of hair. My only brother, age 51, has lost 40 to 50% of his hair at the crown of his head, due to hereditary reasons,
    just like my 87 year old Dad still alive. I am glad, in 1998, and 2001, that I had the very long surgery that helped my self esteem
    immensely. With the aging process, we all must one day endure, I do not blame my "reduced" libido, and abstinent lifestyle the past
    5 years on finasteride, but just the aging process. Just my 2 cents worth. More sources are Medline.com

    I've tried it and definitely noticed a big effect on my sex drive. I stopped taking it right away after that. It took a long time for things to come back to normal as well. I used an indian generic, I don't know if that made any difference but I would never take it again. I would honestly rather be bald. I've shaved my head before anyway and still had attention from the ladies, I do tend to intimidate men a bit when shaved though it seems unfortunately.

    I was on propecia years ago and had the same side side effects others have mentioned- reduced libido etc. This was american scripted stuff. I stopped it after a few years. Hair never grew back anyway. Decided to go with what god gave me. I get it trimmed real short and make believe I'm Jason Statham.

    I often lose track. and forget to count my blessings.

  13. I am trying to figure if there is truth to this claim. I have been doing the 5mg split 4 ways - never splits perfectly. I figured I was just becoming dependent on the overseas generic viagra but .....

  14. When I was younger I would buy the generic Prozcar and cut it into 1/4 (impossible to cut in 1/5). It did cut my libido. I had new born kids so my wife was tired all the time (can not blame her) so it worked out. I was on testosterone for a long time (steroid) plus my Dad lost his hair so not I do not care plus I am 54. If I was 20 yrs old I would be concerned with the hair thing. It is all over for me. I even drive a MINI VAN.

  15. does that stuff work at all?

    Finpecia/Proscar works for sure. Their side effects need you to pay close attention if you decided to start using them. Specially the enlarged breasts.
    Rogaine on the other hand is temporary solution. I never had a friend who tried it and stuck to it for more than 1 year. it's troublesome to keep its schedule.

    Many who uses finasteride, has issues with libido, but also many have problem with testosterone too.

    Fina + nebido works fine on me, when i started medics, i used cialis, but no need anymore after 9 months, everything is like before, but hair stays on

    Hope this will help someone, take testosterone lab test

  19. persoaly i never had a problem one thing that does worry me is the possibility of man boobs though anyone experienced this? and was it noticable and perminant?

  20. The side-effects of finasteride on erectile dysfunciton and reduced libido are known to sometimes stay for a long times after stopping finasteride... I've known two people who've used it, one without any of these side effects and one with long-lasting effects on libido. Better weigh the potential benefits against these known risks before starting this medication!

    Gynecomastia does not go away on its own. Reducing it requires drug or surgical treatment depending on how long it has been there.
