Horrific side effects linked to prostate drug

Want to see a man panic? Tell him there’s something wrong with his prostate.

It’s worse than telling him that his mother-in-law is on her way over!

Even if it’s not cancer, a problem such as an enlarged prostate can strike fear into a man’s heart.

It’s a natural reaction. It feels like a threat to everything that makes you man — messing with everything you do with your parts “down there.”

It can make going to the bathroom miserable… and going to the bedroom frustrating and humiliating.

So, I get why guys rarely question docs who put them on meds for an enlarged prostate (a.k.a. benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH for short).

What I DON’T get is why some of those drugs even exist in the first place!

New research shows how one of the most common meds given for BPH can slam you with side effects much worse than anything an enlarged prostate will do to you.

The drug is called dutsteride, but it’s often sold as the brand name Avodart.

It’s supposed to shrink the prostate back down to size, which, in theory, will ease the pressure down there.

You’ll pee better… you won’t need diapers… and you can get back to business in the bedroom.

Nice theory.

In reality, the new study finds you could end up battling a nightmare of endless side effects.

The drug can increase both your blood sugar and your hemoglobin A1C levels, which will put you at risk for diabetes. It can also raise your levels of fat in the blood, increasing your risk of a fatty liver.

It can even make those embarrassing sex problems WORSE!

Can you think of a more nightmarish list of side effects for a guy?

But, my friend, you don’t have to put up with all of that to get some real and lasting relief, and you don’t have to switch to other meds pushed on men with prostate problems.

Most of them are just as bad, and some might even be worse.

There are natural therapies that can bring the swelling down and get you back to feeling like your old self again, and all that starts with saw palmetto. There’s a reason this stuff sets the standard: It can work wonders!

Many guys will see big-time results just by taking saw palmetto alone, but most find it works even better when combined with lycopene and the trace mineral selenium (both can also cut the risk of prostate cancer, so it’s a win-win).

Beta sitosterol can also help guys battling prostate problems.

Of course, speak to a doctor first, and don’t start or stop anything without getting him to sign off on your plan.

With the ABCs on BPH,

  1. Every drug has major side affects. Having lived with a chronically ill husband, who is being kept alive by the miracles of modern medicine for the last thirteen years, for close to thirty years now, I would not wish this on my worst enemy. For every ailment there is a drug. The prescription lists just keeps getting longer and longer. Praise the Lord the costs of those prescriptions have went way down over the years and so far we now have the money (which I used to pay by credit card) to pay for them because that is the #1 priority. Everything else falls to the wayside.

  2. Oh yes, it’s very difficult sometimes…and I know the debt medical bills and scripts can accrue. Sadly the govt. would like us to die off quicker.
