Sexual side effects of Finasteride

Patient : Doctor prescribed finpecia tab for male pattern baldness, after taking tablet for one month i am suffered from erections problems ie.unable to get erection. now i am completely off from tab around 7 months. but i am not recovered still now.Is it possible to get back to normal.
Doctor :   Finpecia (finasteride) is a drug that is used in the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy and male pattern baldness . Side effects of finasteride include impotence and abnormal ejaculation. In most cases these side effects resolve after stopping the drug. Since your symptoms have been more than 7 months, I would advise you to see a urologist for further evaluation and tests.
