Taking Propecia (finasteride) for 11 months without noticing side effects. Still get erections but noticed that I do not get morning wood anymore. Is this normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly related

A small percentage of patients taking finasteride have reported diminished nocturnal penile tumescence (normally occurs 3-5 times per night during REM sleep).
If your daytime erections and sex drive are normal, I would not consider this a problem though.
