I'm wondering if anyone has had these drugs at the same time? The new urologist that I was referred to has me on a trial run with these. He seems to indicate that in the near future I will probably need the Turp surgery. Has anyone had any side effects from this combo cocktail, and has it worked? I saw that one of the side effects was a diminished loss of hair, and possibly some regrowth. That wouldn't be all bad depending on where the hair growth would occur?????

This may be a bit late and of no use to you, but here's my experience:

I haven't taken Finasteride, but I did take Tamsulolsin for about 5 months. The Tamsulosin did indeed reduce the size of my prostate and open up the channel through it and make urinating easier. Although it came with the usual side-effect of retrograde ejaculation. And later the not-so-common side-effect of the inability to achieve orgasm.

I'm currently taking terazosin and trying to find a dosage that is effective without causing the side-effects. Neither have happened yet, so it's pretty much a wash at this point.
