Yes: Blood clots, acne, fluid retention, priapism, exacerbation of prostate cancer, exacerbation of male breast cancer, local itching, worsening of an enlarged prostate, headache, enlargement of the breasts, allergy, depression, male pattern baldness. Just like all medications, use it if it's necessary in the lowest effective dose, if the benefits outweigh the risks. Your doctor can help you decide.
