Patient : Hello Dr. my name is Jose 20 I'm years old, I have been losing hair since I was very young like 15 years old, since that moment I went to dermatologist and he prescribed me Rogaine 5%, Avixis (is a topical solution that sort of cleans your hair from DHT available in Mexico) and Propecia 1mg. Then three years late when I was 18 he told me to take 2.5 mg of Finasteride and I didnt have any side effect until two months ago when I realized I couldn't keep an erection, so I went to an urologist and he prescribed me Andriol TC which is testosterone 40 mg twice a day for one month and lower the Finasteride to 1mg, after that month I didn't noticed any change at all and I stopped talking both almost three weeks ago. Im kind of worried right now because the first days I stopped I was feeling better, I got a little bit more erections but right now is very hard for me to keep or achieve an erection and when I finally get one I eyaculate very very fast (I was never like that). What can I do? Which kind of tests should I make? I also smoke from 20 to 30 cigarretes every day, can this be the reason why?
Thank you very much,
