I (male aged 34 years) am taking Cipla’s Finpecia (Finasteride 1mg) for the past 1.5 years. One of the side-effects i seem to be experiencing for quite sometime now (not sure if it is due to finasteride but seems to be very much linked) is hesitation during start of urination (need to exert some pressure during start of urination to start the urine stream).
Please let us know if this is a known side-effect or i need to undergo any further medical diagnosis like medical tests etc. of this symptom. Thanks.
I think that you should see a urologist and have your prostate checked. The symptom you are referring to may be the result of some prostate problem.
I would doubt that this symptom is a result of finasteride, which is used to reduce urination problems in men with BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
